Biography

Helsinki, Finland (1989 – present)

The 69 Eyes originate from Helsinki, Finland. They became a band in the early 1990’s and are nowadays labelled as “” though their early releases were more of a glam/hard rock style.

1989 - 1999

Formed by a group of friends in the bars of Helsinki, Finland in the summer of 1989, a nod to illustrate the band’s tight-knit friendship is that the lineup has stayed the same since creation. The band originally played glam metal inspired music, different from their current gothic rock style.

The band released their first 7 inch EP, “Sugarman”, in 1990, followed by another 7 inch, “Barbarella” in 1991. These releases paved the way for the bands first album Bump ‘n’ Grind released in 1992 which contained some re-recorded versions of songs from the first 2 EP. This same year, the band released their final 2 7 inch EP’s, titaled “Juicy Lucy” and “High Times Low Lives”. In 1994 through a Japanese Label the band’s second CD release was unleased, the compilation album “Motor City Resurrection”. It has since been re-released with 8 bonus tracks worldwide. Though this release featured no new songs, it collected the majority of the bands early material and contributions to other compilations. It was followed in 1995 by Savage Garden which featured Hanoi Rocks guitarist Andy McCoy on the track “Wild Talk”. Also released during this time were 2 VHS tapes “Motor City Resurrection” and “Savage Tales” available only through the band’s self-run fanclub which are seen rarely, if ever for sale online.

    O vocal do Jirky é sensacional, em certas músicas ele causa arrepio.

    Uma das poucas bandas que mudaram o seu estilo e continuaram fodas. A fase Glam é muito boa, acho que se continuassem nesse estilo seriam uma boa banda hoje, porém não tanto quanto é agora fazendo esse "Goth 'N' Roll".
