Bang Tango

hair story

Bang Tango formed in 1988 in Los Angeles, California. Initially the band was founded by guitarist Mark Knight and bassist Kyle Kyle. Knight wanted a second guitarist and recruited Kyle Stevens. At the suggestion of Rough Cutt’s Amir Derakh, vocalist Joe Leste’ joined the band as it’s frontman which led to Leste’s childhood friend, Tigg Ketler, completing the 5 piece line up as Bang Tango’s drummer.

The band then began to play shows and would gain a following on the sunset strip scene in Hollywood, packing all the popular clubs and venues at the time, which led to a bidding war with many major labels. Bang Tango were then signed to MCA Records… (from Wikipedia)
