The absence of Guns N' Roses left an enormous gap in the glam metal sweepstakes by the mid-'90s (due to Axl putting the group on indefinite hiatus), but several bands attempted to fill the void, such as similarly styled Phoenix rockers Beat Angels formed in 1994. Comprised of members Michael Brooks and E. Keith Jackson (guitar), Tommy Caradonna (bass), Brian Smith (vocals), and Frankie Hanyak (drums), the group issued a pair of recordings for the Epiphany label in the late '90s — 1996's "Unhappy Hour With..." and 1997's "Red Badge of Discourage" — the latter of which was produced by former Guns 'N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke.
"Beat Angels hate bios. Beat Angels hate other things too but let's not get into it. Beat Angels also played with other people but who cares?
Beat Angels dig lots of things. Neal & Jack. Jim Thompson & Ann Margaret. Clash 45's & cheap Mexican souvenirs. Women with a past. Johnny Thunders & Dean Martin. The lost weekend & 101 dalmations. Beatle boots & loud guitars. Midnight Cowboy & Bruce Lee. Myrna Loy & cocktail hour & all those Cheap Trick singles...
So whatcha gonna do about it? "
