Here come the Brides of Destruction… all dressed in black, fresh from the altar, and ready for the honeymoon! And what a better way to pop their cherry then right in front of 500 of their most zealous, screaming fans!

The Brides performed live for their first time ever at the infamous Tower Records on Sunset Blvd. in honor of their debut release, Here Come the Brides. Hundreds of fans lined up voraciously in scores to see the pairing of Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and ex-LA Guns axemaster Tracii Guns, along with brand new vocalist London Le Grande and drummer Scot Coogan.

The band took to the small stage, a foot off the ground, amidst pushed-back racks of CDs in the middle of the record store. They kicked off the set with the smoldering track “Natural Born Killers.” I haven’t hear the album yet for comparison, but Tracii Guns was soloing like a crazy madman, and the song seemed to last forever. When their burst into their first single, “Shut the Fuck Up,” the place went wild and you could feel the chemistry of the foursome as thick as mercury.

They kept the train rolling on with “Brace Yourself,” “Life” and lastly, “I Don’t Care,” which they took an especially long time wrapping up -- maybe because they seemed to be enjoying themselves so much. Or maybe they were afraid to get to the autograph session after seeing how many people actually turned up for this event! Hell, guys and girls alike we pushing each other out of the way to touch Nikki, Tracii and London’s hands like they were giving away free chronic! There was screaming, crying, fans clutching on to various merchandise – waving it in the air. Nikki ended the show by shoving his bass up through the ceiling tile, reinforcing that rock is not dead, it’s just not quite as destructive.

All in all – the band sounded incredible (and incredibly loud!), London is a very charismatic frontman – he’s got the vocals and the looks (and he’s freaking tall!) – they definitely put on a great teaser gig!

If you haven’t yet, be sure to snatch up a copy of Here Come the Brides, released today, through Sanctuary Records.
