Biography

Krayola Kids were formed in 1991 in CA, by the departure of lead singer Kelly Lynn from the band "The BabyDolls"; which will shortly after abandon the sound for a more vibe becoming The Astro Vamps. Singer Kelly (who had changed his name to Krayola Kelly) wanted to form his own band that keep in line with the thriving scene. He partnered with bassist Stacy. Together they wanted to expand the colorful image and sound that they had embraced in the Dolls. Kelly met Pepsi Pop thru an ad In the local rag. Drummer Tommi Tune joined the band after just having arrived from 2 days earlier. When it looked that the lineup was complete, Stacy suddenly left the project and joined the Zeros. However, Stacy recommended a close friend Robbie Roulette as a his replacement. Robbie was also the assistant of Poison's guitarist C.C. DeVille, so C.C. mentored the band and helped them to develop their sound and image. Krayola kids started playing the sunset strips clubs opening for acts like Swingin' Thing, Alleycat Scratch and Big Bang Babies. The band started working on their record, "The House That Glam Built". Once again, Bassist Robbie Roulette just up and left the band. He was shortly replaced by Holly Daze. With Holly Daze (who was from ) now aboard, the band expanded their Poison and Pretty Boy Floyd influenced sound with other flavors, like Enuff Z'Nuff and bands like Wonder Stuff. A collaborator of then Metallica Bassist, Jason Newsted, saw the band at a gig in Hollywood and wanted to manage the band; he procures some high proile gigs for The kids including an opener at Phoenix stadium for Rob Zombie. A very peculiar match up for such a poppy band. But When the band seemed so close to a record deal the music scene abruptly changed direction. The golden days of the sunset strip were numbered; with the release Nirvana's Nevermind, the music as we knew it, wiped out the movement in Hollywood.

Krayola Kelly left the band for creative differences. The other 3 members hired a new singer and changed their sound drastically to alternative, becoming the band “Cartoon Boyfriend.”
