Background
.Beau Nasty was a typical late 80's sleaze band, releasing a brand of good time hard rock similar to that of Britny Fox. One album and a couple of tours was all the band managed to accomplish before fading into obscurity. Formed in Los Angeles, California by Mark Anthony Fritz (vocals), George Bernhardt (guitar, ex Lee Aaron and Hanover Fist), Brian Young (guitar), Doug Baker (bass) and Mike Terrana (drums, ex Zillion, Hanover Fist and Kuni).


The Songs
The legendary Beau Hill produced the debut album, but even singles such as 'Shake It' (also the name of early promos of the album) and their version of 'Love Potion #9' couldn't propel the record into the charts. The band hit the road opening for Loverboy and Love/Hate, but by the tail end of 1989 they had become disillusioned with the music business and disbanded.


In Summary
Terrana became a highly sought after drummer, and went on to work with Tony MacAlpine, Yngwie Malmsteen, Axel Rudi Pell and Rage among others. Young joined Talisman while Bernhardt played with both Jeff Scott Soto and Gregg Bissonette.

Love this album...comparing them to Britny Fox isn't really a good comparison as these guys had way more musical prowness on their instruments...this was hard rock more like what Tesla would do...killer solo's...big riffs...and even bigger drums.

Saw these guys live and they were killer...sad that bands with this much talent get no glory while lesser bands and musicians like Britny Fox got a lot more exposure on MTV...still they left us with one rockin' CD.

Terrana told us after the show how unhappy they were with their label...fact is they played a killer song that wasn't on the album and when I asked him why it wasn't...he said the label made them put on IMO the worst song on the CD Make A Wish instead of the killer tune because they thought it would get airplay...it didn't...stupid label...nuff said.

I probably should rewrite this article. It's not one of ours.

Beau Nasty often gets lumped into the massive glut of hair/glam metal signings that occurred in the very late 80's. Labels were obviously looking for another Poison, Motley, Warrant, Cinderella, etc… There was a mad rush of second tier signings in hopes of propping up the next super glam metal band, and for CBS, Beau Nasty was it. Obviously things didn't come to fruition on stardom, but this one off album is pretty darn good and it had the prolific Beau Hill at the production helm. The opening album single 'Shake It' is a good pick, as well as ''Gemini' with its melodic mid-tempo surges and killer guitar work. The power ballad 'Paradise In the Sand' is another standout. 'Piece Of The Action' is by the numbers traditional hair metal swagger, but it's one level above the fray with its catchy choruses.
