Roughhouse


Originally known as the glam band Teeze, upon signing a major label deal the band toned down their image and was forced to change their name to Roughhouse. Their material would easily have fit onto a Motley Crue album. In 1988 the members of Teeze, Luis Rivera (vocals), Gregg Malack (guitar), Rex Eisen (guitar), Dave Weakley (bass) and Mike Natalini (drums), finally got their long awaited signing with a major record label. However they had to change their name due to a Canadian rock band named Teaze and an R&B group known as Tease. Read more on Last.fm
Originally known as the glam band Teeze, upon signing a major label deal the band toned down their image and was forced to change their name to Roughhouse. Their material would easily have fit onto a Motley Crue album. In 1988 the members of Teeze, Luis Rivera (vocals), Gregg Malack (guitar), Rex Eisen (guitar), Dave Weakley (bass) and Mike Natalini (drums), finally got their long awaited signing with a major record label. However they had to change their name due to a Canadian rock band named Teaze and an R&B group known as Tease. Despite protests, they finally gave in and became known as Roughhouse. Max Norman produced the debut album, and the band was set to make waves.

Yet surprisingly their management didn't want to record a support video for the album, and after much fighting management finally relented and a video for "Tonite" was shot some two months after the album's release. Lack of radio promotion and a decent touring slot led to the album sinking without a trace. Roughhouse would headline a club tour, but by 1991 the band had fallen apart. The band reunited for some shows in 1992/93, but it wouldn't be until 2002 when the band once again hit the stage. They still continue to tour off and on, and there are future plans to re-release both the hard to find Roughhouse and Teeze albums.
