Flash Bastard have raided the closets of yesteryear's most forgettable acts to bring you a K-Tel quality masterpiece, where the forgettable becomes unforgettable then forgettable once again. The post-punk, post-disco, pass the bong spirit of 81’ will be born again in the new millennium, and Flash Bastard’s new record “WILD” is here to give it a sonic cesarean section. Lost somewhere between ABBA and the Misfits, this is disco ruffied Glitter Rock at its least culturally redeeming and most rewarding. This is Flash Bastard. Flash Bastard began with 2 high school rebellious delinquents.
Flash Bastard got the attention of many major record labels. Eventually inking a record deal with Nikki Sixx's Americoma/BMG label. The band went from the studio to the stadium with a month. As the abrasion of Flash Bastard progressed the public at large were witness to arrests, overdoses, dysfunction on all levels including press radio and films, kidnapping, lock down, pre-trial, drunk tanks, riots, car jumps off of draw bridges onto ferries (A-team style), bloodstained interiors of studios and cars, smack houses, breaking and entering, border detention, alleyways and dumpsters, near fatal head on collisions with ferries and freeway cars, last minute song arrangement in hospitals, sold out stadium and club tours, surgeries and therapy to repair stage wounds, public feuds with the Scorpions, girlfriend swapping, the first North American operation to transfuse blood, rehab, detox, top criminal psychologists, orgies, car crashes, police bans from islands, showered with fan appreciation in the form of beer bottles, drunk on xmas, and now spiritual harmony.
