Trixter

hair story

Trixter was formed in June 1983 in Paramus, New Jersey by natives Steve Brown, and Doug “Dougie C.” Cowie. Originally known as Rade, Brown and Cowie added drummer Mike Pane, and later singer Pete Loran to round out the lineup. After a single concert, Pane was replaced with Mark “Gus” Scott and the band changed its name to Trixter. By 1986, Trixter was a constant fixture on the concert scene, quickly growing a fan base on the strength of their live shows. By 1987, Trixter was performing to sold out crowds, playing with acts like Kix and Skid Row, and found themselves being courted by several major record labels. In 1988, Trixter began recording at legendary Bear Tracks Studios in New York with engineer Nelson Ayers, most notable for recording Guns N’ Roses Appetite For Destruction, on what was intended to become their first studio album titled “Just Having Fun”. The album was never released and in November 1988, founding member Dougie C. was replaced with local bassist PJ Farley. In May 1989 the band landed a deal with Mechanic/MCA Records… (from Wikipedia)
