Precious Metal

hair story

The all-female hard rock band Precious Metal started performing at Los Angeles venues such as FM Station, Club Lingerie, Whisky a Go Go and The Roxy in 1984. This exposure brought Precious Metal to the attention of influential KROQ radio disc jockey Rodney Bingenheimer, who played their music on his radio program. Russ Regan, head of Polygram Records, signed the band soon afterwards, and Precious Metal released their debut record Right Here, Right Now in 1985 on Mercury Records. After leaving Polygram, the band was picked up by Capitol Records subsidiary label Chameleon who released their final two albums That Kind of Girl in 1988 and Precious Metal in 1990….(from Wikipedia)
