Paul and Grant hooked up after Scott went touring overseas with the hot twins babes of "Gypsy Queen" and starting working on the album. Jason Glines was discovered at a local bar where he displayed his talant of tickling the ivories, he was instantly picked up by the boys and rehearsals began. While being back on break from Europe, Scott decided to hook back up with Grant and Paul upon hearing the first few cuts off the album. Danny soon followed after returning from Los Angeles.
Together the band wrote, produced and recorded their debut album. Their first single "Love on the telephone" was a top three song on many of the radio stations throughout the country, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Milwaukee and Orlando to name a few. Amazingly this was done without being signed to any label. Shortly thereafter Gerry Greenberg of Sony’s Epic/WTG records signed the band in 1991. However, Sony had signed Michael Jackson to a mega deal for his "Black and White" album forcing all the acts signed to Sony to be delayed until 1992 for releasing.
Jesse Strange wasn’t released until April of 1992. Grunge and alternative soon became the flavor of the decade and all the hair bands along with Jesse Strange were soon dumped along with their long locks of hair and leather jackets like a hung over and abused groupie come sun-up after the tour bus takes off. Jesse Strange recorded a number of tunes before, during and after their debut album. In February 2006, the band made these tunes available to the fans, independently releasing Looking For Some Strange. Read more on Last.fm.
