Electric Angels was a Los Angeles-based band that formed from the ashes of the now-defunct Candy featuring new singer Shane, guitarist Ryan Roxie, and original Candy members bassist/songwriter Jonathan Daniel, and drummer John Schubert. After one year, the band relocated to New York City and were signed to Atlantic Records within five months. One of their first New York shows was opening up for the British band Dogs D'Amour and Mother Love Bone, which soon became Pearl Jam. Their self-titled debut was recorded in London in the autumn of 1989 by David Bowie and T.Rex producer Tony Visconti and released in February 1990. They were reviewed favorably as a cross between The Replacements and Hanoi Rocks. The band let their contract with Atlantic expire in 1991 due to poor promotion on the part of the label. Home demos were made for early song ideas, though a second album was only in the infancy stages. These demoes have erroneously turned up as the never-released second album, which was to be called New York Times, though against the band's wishes or approval. The band split in April 1992 when Roxie returned to Los Angeles to become the guitarist for Alice Cooper. Shane, Jonathan, and John returned a few years later, sans guitarist Ryan Roxie but with the addition of John Ceparano, as The Loveless, releasing "A tale of gin and salvation" in 1995, an album that is well loved among fans of the power pop music genre.
The Electric Angels, again without Roxie, reunited in early 2000 for a one-off radio appearance on WDHA's The Tour Bus.
