Ocean Hags’ mercurial profession redefined the artwork of self-destruction, as well as the band’s brief run was more than almost before it began — how rock and roll & roll of these. Hailing from Seattle, Ocean Hags were created in 1985 by Ron Yocom (vocals, acoustic guitar), Frankie Wilsey (acoustic guitar), Chris Schlosshardt (bass), and Adam Maples (drums), who collectively made a decision to relocate to SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA in a bet to get nearer to their Hollywood locks metallic dreams. Metallica’s Kirk Hammett lent a submit the recording of the first demonstration, and such was its guarantee that after putting your signature on with Chrysalis Information, production on the eponymous 1989 debut was billed to Weapons N’ Roses engineer Mike Clink. Control the noises of ’80s sleaze metallic with the Pacific Northwest’s distinctly darker and mystical (and unsuspectingly pre-grunge) sonic visual, the album fulfilled with much crucial achievement, but was a industrial flop. Not it mattered, because the inherently doomed clothing would soon surpass their decadent picture by splitting up under acrimonious conditions (drug abuse, canceled shows, etc.) in the center of a Western tour. To echo their manager’s declaration at that time: “There’s just so far you may get with three junkies and something alcoholic.” Tentative programs for any comeback remained that, so when Schlosshardt experienced a lethal heroin overdose in 1991, Ocean Hags had been officially forget about. Yokom offers eluded the press eye since, and even though Maples was briefly rumored to become Steven Adler’s alternative in GNR, it had been Wilsey who ultimately found a brief rock & move afterlife of types, changing his name to Wilsex and becoming a member of Stephen Pearcy’s Arcade.
