Snakes on a Stage

Fly By Night Club Fremantle

Saturday November 25th

Catch local ARIA winners Kav and Stu (From Eskimo Joe) and members of End of Fashion as they pay their tribute to Hair Metal for a Fly by Night benefit this Saturday November 25

Image The Night will feature the fella's in their new incarnation of Wolf Leopard with special guests Leopard Skin Sister and Leopard Sword

So squeeze into those tight black jeans, let down your hair, and get those snakes onto that stage. The Fly by Night is a not for profit venue so get down and support the Club which has been supporting the music for 20 years!

Tickets are $15+bf through Mills, 78 Records, heatseeker.com.au or $20 on the door

Doors open 8pm for this Hot Hot Show!

We will be using one of our vintage Fairlight CVI's to get that truly spectacular 80's music video look that just can't be reproduced with modern equipment.

The Wolf Leopard story is one for the Halls of Fame!

Musically they combined sexually provocative lyrics and dumb choruses with heavy-duty, metallic rock 'n' roll. Jimmy “Cobra” Delillo (ex-Last Beat) took over on drums before the recording of their debut, Born.

This was picked up from the independent Indezza label by Panlantic Records, following a successful UK appearance at the Reading Festival and a controversial performance on The Tube television show in 1998.

The band never lived up to their initial promise, with successive albums simply regurgitating earlier ideas. Their greatest success was Punch, which cracked the Top 20 album charts on both sides of the Atlantic. It also included the hit single, "I Am The (K) Night", which peaked at number 18 in the US.

Their audience had become bored with them by the time Wigs Of Wesley was released and the tour to support it was a flop. Cobra quit and returned to his former outfit, Last Beat; Original drummer Johnny West Coast (ex-Water Weasels) was drafted in as replacement. Nikki Seven steered the band in a more melodic direction on Still Born . The album was rubbish; Panlantic terminated their contract, and the band imploded in 2002.

Nikki Seven went on to form The Electric Fists, with ex-Mudflaps guitarist Gerry Hart (subsequently evolving, more permanently, into Windowmaker), before finding belated success as a heavy metal DJ.

Beef Loaf was a regular on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, before he hit the Billboard charts again with his breakthrough album, Deep Fried Rock. Following this, Beef was approached by the World Wrestling Foundation to appear in their 2005 season. He didn’t last long, as his enthusiasm resulted in many of his opponents being ruthlessly beaten to a bloody mess.

The five members of Wolf Leopard hadn’t spoken since their breakup until one fateful night in May of 2005. All were invited to a benefit dinner for Lil Kim held in the Hollywood hills. Following an impromptu rendition of It Hurts Like The First Time, the band rediscovered their passion for the stage, and old friendships were rekindled.
And so here we are. 2006 sees the new album from Wolf Leopard, “A Rock In Your Jock” in all its glory. Following a sold out tour of eastern Europe, the Leopard grace the shores Down Under for one show only.

As one journalist said, “Wolf Leopard are the old guard of true hair metal. What’s more, they’re so desperate to get their fans back, the ticket price is crazy. I could think of heaps worse ways to spend my cash.”
