There's only so far you can get with three junkies and one alcoholic, That, as legend has it, is a direct quote from the manager of the Sea Hags, a man no doubt at the end of his tether having watched one of the most hotly tipped hard rock bands of the era slide off the edge of the world into oblivion. Hailing from San Francisco, the Hags brought the a certain (alcoholic) swagger to the eighties with one foot in the vapour trail of Guns 'n Roses and the other in the classic pre punk attack of the New York Dolls. The G 'n R connection was not that surprising considering that their producer Mike Clink was also the man behind the console of the Sea Hags album. Originally released in 1989 on the Chyrsalis label, the album was the work of nearly a decade of struggle from humble origins in Seattle, a demo tape produced by Metallica's Kirk Hammett, and a very public fight with a variety of interesting but largely illegal substances. Indeed, Chrysalis were so concerned about their investment that they postponed the release of the record until two members had detoxed and scrubbed up nicely. Despite a rapturous reception from the rock cognoscenti the band barely managed to stumble through one short tour before succumbing to the aggregate pressures of frontline rockin'. Tragically, in 1991, bassist Chris Schlosshardt was found dead of a heroin overdose thus forever sealing the fate of the band and leaving behind one of the era's most celebrated, if overlooked, releases. Special Collector's Edition with 16 page full colour booklet, riginal and enhanced artwork with new photos, 4,000 Word essay written by Paul Elliott and extensive memorabilia with full involvement from front man Ron Yokum and 2 unreleased bonus tracks. Remastered - Sound shaped from 24 but digital technology by Jon Astley (the Who, Judas Priest, Eric Clapton etc)
