Wild Boyz – Unleashed! (1990)

When I got my Internet account back in 1998, I started searching for Hard Rock bands from my youth. I had (and still have) a ton of old Rock magazines and I would grab a back issue and find bands I had forgotten about and search them. Those searches led me to Ebay and one of the rarest CDs at that time, the only release by California’s Wild Boyz, UNLEASHED!

Ten years ago, this CD was a rarity going for at least a couple hundred dollars at auction but the price has levelled off in the last three or four years. You can get an UNLEASHED! CD on Ebay for $40 – $80…..still a little pricey!

I really don’t know that much about the band. I’ve read the comparisons that Wild Boyz is a combination of Poison, Pretty Boy Floyd and Faster Pussycat but I’ve never actually heard a sample. The only other information I’ve had is that there was a Japanese release with a different cover. One of my collecting quirks is acquiring obscure ’80s Glam/Sleaze releases so I need this one.

Check out the Wild Boyz website.

      I knew your dad and the band when they were called Dorian Gray. I was more friends with Val than any of them and have been searching for a way to contact him since Kurt doesn’t answer on their home page. I used to hang out with them and go to rehearsals in Kurt’s garage. Never missed a show from 1988 – 2000. Should you ever catch your father see if he knows what happened to my old buddy.

      • Kim Turner says:

        Goofed on the years, it was 1988 – 1990 that I meant not to 2000. Had something else in mind when I wrote this. Sorry.
