Existem rumores um tanto quanto bizarros acerca do Rock City Angels… Sua história remete aos anos 1980, quando o vocalista Bobby Bondage e o baixista Andy Panik’s, impressionados após assistirem ao famoso documentário sobre Heavy Metal, “The Decline Of Western Civilization”, decidiram montar o grupo The Abusers.

Ainda que inicialmente tocasse Punk Rock, aos poucos a banda vai adotando um visual mais glam e inserindo linhas melódicas típicas do Hard Rock à sujeira de sua proposta. Também passou a se chamar Rock City Angels, que foi firmando uma forte reputação ao sul da Flórida a ponto de sua demo atrair a atenção da New Renaissance Records, que ofereceu um contrato ao pessoal.

Assim sendo, logo em seguida o grupo se mudou para a Flórida, onde começou a conquistar sua nova base de fãs. De Bondage, Bobby passou a ser Durango, e foi nessa época que o precoce Johnny Depp (é, aquele ator!) ingressou no então Rock City Angels, isso antes de conquistar a fama no cinema.

E foi mais ou menos na época em que gravaram seu primeiro disco que as esquisitices começaram a acontecer. Antes do lançamento, a gerente da New Renaissance, Anne Boleyn, passou a receber constantes ameaças contra sua vida e foi informada que a Geffen Records era a mandante. A moça segurou as pontas, mas quando seu carro foi jogado para fora da estrada, ela simplesmente cedeu às pressões.

    I don't ever remember there being a 'sea of cover bands' down here in Ft Lauderdale in 1980 at all. In fact that was the year I moved here from NYC and the underground scene here was fucking cool. The Abusers were great RCA too.

    We are now accepting pre-orders for the 1st Mondophonics, my new Memphis band's single, out by the end of the month. Each record will be numbered, signed and a real bargain at $5 as the price might go up a bit after distribution. This will be the first of five singles, a series, and if you don't have a turntable you will be able to download on CDBaby, iTune or Amazon or even get a download card with a few extra surprises!

    Turns out we can't let you hear Midnight Confessions because we're getting ripped off by the digital distributer of FNA Records, so if you buy this album, please buy a hardcopy, (cd) of it!

    We will soon have some songs for you to preview of Midnight Confessions, available at FNA Records and CDBaby!

    I love our fans! I started a disaster relief fund for our friends in Birmingham, Alabama that were left homeless by the recent tornados and floods, by contributing 15% of sales of the Jim Dickinson mix of "Young Man's Blues" and "Use Once & Destroy'. Folks on FaceBook all over the world have helped out, just amazing. Anyone interested, just send me your e-mail addy and I'll send out an invoice. Show your love and we'll show you ours by turning you on to the revolutionary punkrock'n'soul we're known for. Power to the People!!! BD

    I really don't understand the whole "similar artists" section; we have absolutely nothing in common with 85% of the artists selected. I mean, come on! "Cats in Boots"? "Pretty Boy Floyd"? We have more in common with "Social Distortion", "Rocket From The Crypt", "Supersuckers", etc. than with any of these bands. I just don't see the connection and that includes "Young Man's Blues" RCA continues to evolve with every album, maybe someday the world will catch up...

    And here it is, your FREE download of our first round of demos, often called the Glam Album, (1983). PLEASE DO NOT BUY this album! The money is going to a disreputable label that's been ripping us off for years. Now that you've heard that, maybe it's time for some new stuff. Check out "Use Once and Destroy" to see how the band has grown. BD

    Just got of the road, Rock City Angels just finished touring the southeast. Played with some fantastic bands, River City Tanlines, Danny Choctaw and the Zoobombs to name just a few. This made for some excellent shows. Can't wait to do it again!

    Please DO NOT BUY the ROCK CITY ANGELS "Glam Album" off of ITunes and elsewhere. We will gladly give it to you for FREE! When you buy this album you are only ripping off the band along with Anne Bolynne from New Rennaisance. The only OFFICIAL RCA releases are "Young Mans Blues",(1988), "Use Once And Destroy",(2008) and "Midnight Confessions", (2010). Thank you.
