Biography

Along with fellow sozzled Soho scuzzy soiree-ers Last of the Teenage Idols and Buttz’s earlier bon vivants The Babysitters the Soho Roses should have had it all at the tail end of the 80’s and made a larger than life-size indentation on the 90’s musical scene.

Should, of course, is a word as big as Soho itself. In this case, as big as Soho and SoHO combined. But they should have had all this. And more. On the floor. AND the floor at yer best mate’s wedding. AND made out the door with the swag. Ayuss, and a bridesmaid or two. Alas, unfortunately, as happened with so many Flash Metallers, they never lucked out enough to get the loot or the ladies. Actually I think they may have had those. Luck and loot just weren’t on the cards. They were, however, left with lesions and lacerations and are consigned to an elegaic eulogy in the Flash Metal Suicides series courtesy of, erm, me. Ha ha – what better homestead to reside in?

‘So Bad They’re Good’ - Ray Zell, and apparently common consensus.

Soho Roses were, and I wasn’t present and correct at the time, being eleven or something and half-remembering one Metal Hammer interview*, a pretty much, and unfairly so else I wouldn’t be writing this, derided bunch it would seem. I didn’t know this till Paul Blittz filled me in on the story that they were unsigned too. And when you think that The Dogs D’Amour were kinda universally dumped on yet got a deal, of sorts at least, we can start to gauge what they were up against. But did they give a fuck? Do ya need to ask? If so, go stand in the corner and think about things a minute or two.
