Biography

After the breakup of the New York Dolls, bassist Arthur “Killer” Kane formed this short lived band along with former dolls guitarist Blackie Lawless (credited as Blackie Goozeman) on vocals, Andy Jay on lead guitar, and Jimi Image on drums. They released one single with three songs: “Long Haired Woman”, “Don’t Need You”, and “Mr. Cool.” This song would later reappear as the W.A.S.P. track “Cries In The Night,” leading to a lawsuit between Kane and Blackie. Although the single never made it into the mainstream circuit, it is often widely regarded as influential on many upcoming artists around the time.

Kane would struggle to hit the highs of the Dolls and would dip into a deep frenzy of drugs and alcohol. Its rumoured he attempted to commit suicide on a number of occasions, however Kane would later reunite with the Dolls for a reunion show.
