Pure Hell "Noise Addiction" LP (1st All Black Punk 1974)

PURE HELL is "The World's First Original All Black Punk-Rock Band", established in Philadelphia, PA, in 1974, during the flashpoint of the punk culture in New York City, London and Los Angeles. Amid the pioneers of the post garage, acid rock, glam-theatre era of the late 60's/early 70's, this band is considered the first of its kind, and comparable to the Sex Pistols, Dead Boys, The Germs, The MC 5 and Bad Brains, who recognize them as an influence. The release of a single in the UK- a cover of "These Boots are Made for Walking" w/B side, "No Rules" they landed in the top 5 on the UK charts as they toured Europe under the moniker, "The Hendrix Connection." However, their first album "NOISE ADDICTION," remained unreleased for 28 years & is now available in limited press.. Pure Hell touts a second unreleased album produced in the mid 1990's by former members of L.A. Guns, Nine Inch Nails, and Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, entitled THE BLACK BOX. Unfortunately the band endured the loss of founding member and drummer, Michael "SPIDER" Sanders, in 2002. They recently inducted Michael Mosley (She-Males, Sadistic Exploits). Most recent live performances include select venues and events on the east coast, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music Festival 2009, while contributing to countless book and magazine interviews, dating back to the late 1970's, as well as documentaries and films, most notably the recent Alan Parker movie, "Who Killed Nancy" and the book based on their first manager, "Curtis Knight: Living In The Shadow Of Jimi Hendrix." 2010 looks to be the year of yet another rebirth for this legendary, true classic punk band- with a growing roster of performance and appearance dates, possibly a new release & a book deal in the works that promises to present a story that tunnels way beneath the surface of music on the bend of social uproar to include the muddiest details of four young men jumping over the edge into a mosh of flambouyant characters & outrageous scenes one would have to have witnessed to fully accept. They were there with some of punk music culture's greatest. The story of PURE HELL, a first, an original... and it's not over...
