Recorded at Amigo Studios, Los Angeles, April 1988, for RCA
Electric Angels is formed in 1987 from the ashes of Candy (with Gilby Clarke), Los
Angeles. In April 1988, RCA Records sent them into the studio with Kiss guitarist, Bruce Kulick to record a 3-song demo that included “Rattlesnake Kisses”, “X in Sex” and “Last Girl on Earth” that stirred up quite a bit of record label interest. Bruce apparently shared the tape with his band mates and a few months later Kiss released a song titled “Let’s Put the X in Sex”. Kiss maintains that they never heard of Electric Angels, let alone their song and that “Let’s Put the X in Sex” was penned by Paul Stanley and Desmond Child, however, the bass lines and some of the lyrics are very similar to those in the Electric Angels’ song.
The band moved to New York where they got signed to Atlantic
Records, which label released their self titled debut in 1990.
