Like Shooting Fish In A Barrel

This beauty comes courtesy of Curt King of Demolish Fanzine, however, even he doesn't know what band it is. According to Curt, this was sent to him between '87-'90 (big surprise) and it fell out of the press kit it was originally sent with. So, there you go.

There couldn't have been too many bands with a member sporting such an amazing mullet, so someone's gotta recognize these guys. I'm mean, that is World Class! I can only assume since the person's shirt is open that this mullethead is in fact a man, but this particular style also has some fans among certain members of the opposite sex. If you know what I'm saying...

If you can pull your gaze away from that fella for just a second, you may notice the dude in front's striking resemblance to Alex Van Halen. He probably noticed that, too. Then there are the two poodles—cute, but harmless.

My guess is these guys sounded like White Lion and dreamed of the day they'd be "discovered" while playing at the local Holiday Inn lounge. Never happened, dudes. Sorry.

Long Overdue Update: Wow, I totally dropped the ball on this. Congrats to Jymbo for IDing these guys as Battle Bratt. Whatta name. I really don't know that I have much more to add. It all just seems ridiculous enough on its own. You will, no doubt, be excited to hear that Battle Brat put out a long-player in 1988, which has been reissued recently (by popular demand, I'm sure). Nice work, Jymbo. Sorry it took me so long to give you credit.

Is that guy on the left wearing purple spandex under his jeans? Looks like it through the knee. I guess he thought spandex and ripped jeans were both too cool for him to choose between so he crammed both on.

There's definitely some spandex involved here. It's not pretty...

I heard them on the first Speed Metal Hell, but never saw them.
