Bang Tango Reissues Announced
The albums will be available in a new digipak edition each limited to 2000 copies. Re-release of "Dancin' On Coals" includes 2 bonus tracks. Metal Mind Productions set the release date for 31st January 2011.
Here is what they had to say: It's hard not to think about lost opportunities when referring to Bang Tango. Perhaps one of the most original and eclectic members of the glam/funk scene, this group had it all: great songs, clever image and significant sound. Unfortunately, they never managed to achieve the success they deserved. However, the fans have not forgotten about them and after many tribulations, Bang Tango have returned in not one but two incarnations: one with the original singer and another featuring the original musicians. Now, thanks to the exclusive re-issues of "Psycho Cafe", "Dancin' on Coals" and "Ain't No Jive... Live", music lovers all around the world may once again return to the early 1990's.
1992 brought the band's second live material (after "Live Injection" from 1989). The 5-track EP entitled "Ain't No Jive... Live" showcased Bang Tango at the peak of their talent. All of the songs included in this material sound as good as on the albums, though they are played faster and with much more energy. The group played some of their best known hits such as "Someone Like You", "Dancin' On Coals" and "Attack of Life", as well as a premiere track for that time ("20th Century Boy") and the ballad "Midnight Strikes", with LeSte's stellar performance.
In 1994, Bang Tango released their third LP called "Love After Death". Unfortunately, the album was not as successful as the band had hoped and, in 1995, the guys decided to call it quits. In the following year, the group reunited just to disband again in 1998. Another reunion took place in 1999, when original members Joe LeSte and Kyle Kyle teamed up with bassist Mattie B. (ex-Altar Boys) for a national tour, which proved to be a great success. A new album was in the making but, eventually, it never got released. In 2002, LeSte reformed the band again, this time with a completely new line-up. The group is still actively touring. In 2010, the original members of Bang Tango: Tigg Ketler, Mark Knight and Kyle Kyle decided to bring back yet another version of the legendary band.
