HOLLYWOOD TEASZE is without a doubt one of the best European glam bands!! It's suprising that they hail from Germany, which hasn't got any deep rooted glam traditions, even though HELTER SKELTER was a great band.
HOLLYWOOD TEASZE was formed in 1990 by Chris la Kriz (bass & vocals), influenced by the LA scene of the late eighties. The other members were Frank E. Guitar (vocals & guitar) and Harry la Bumm (drums). They toured a lot and earned a reputation as a fun and outrageous band. They supported THE BATES, CAPTAIN SENSIBLE and TRASH BRATS.
HOLLYWOOD TEASZE reached a greater audience with their two excellent demos "They might suck ... but they suck real hard!!!" 93 and "The Wonder years" 95. The first is higly recommended, containing a excellent unreleased song - "Don't turn your head".
HOLLYWOOD TEASZE's first cd "Glamdolls in Toyland" (available thru Delinquent Records) was released in 95. They've shot a video for "LA Diddy" and considering making a new one, "4 my parents".
Harry la Bumm left the band in late 1996. He was replaced by glam/gothic drummer Andi Hill (ex. BABY DOLLS/ASTRO VAMPS/JAIMZ GANG - the first two are great glam/gothic bands). If this departure will influence HOLLYWOOD TEASZE remains to be seen. If you're into glam/powerpop/punk you must check out this band!
