TWISTED SISTER held a press conference yesterday (Friday, June 8) at the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, Sweden. You can now watch the entire question-and-answer session in two parts below.
TWISTED SISTER‘s “From The Bars To The Stars” five-disc DVD box set from the band, featuring three decades of live performances, was released on November 8, 2011 via Eagle Vision. It comes with instant fan collectibles for the crazed SMF TWISTED SISTER fan. Includes the exclusive “Twisted Xmas: Live in Las Vegas” DVD, along with four other TWISTED SISTER DVDs (“Live At Wacken”, “Live At Reading”, and “Double Live”, which includes “North Stage ’82″, as well as “NY Steel ’01″), this box set also includes souvenirs including a TWISTED SISTER Christmas ornament, official NY Steel backstage pass, classic 2 ½-inch TWISTED SISTER pin, and a reproduction of the first ever SMF fan club letter.
TWISTED SISTER stormed the stage at London’s famed Marquee Club in March of 1983 for two intense shows that cemented the band’s live legacy in the U.K. Recordings from those legendary nights reveal the Long Island quintet raw, hungry and catching fire just a few months before it achieved breakout success on radio and MTV.
Rhino Handmade taps into that power with “Live At The Marquee Club”, a concert album that collects rare and unreleased recordings from both nights on a single disc. The music comes in a glammed-up gatefold made from heavy-duty cardstock and die-cut into the shape of the iconic TWISTED SISTER logo.
Mirroring the setlists from both shows, the collection’s 13 blistering performances feature singer Dee Snider, guitarists Jay Jay French and Eddie “Fingers” Ojeda, bassist Mark “The Animal” Mendoza and drummer A.J. Pero. Until last year, the only way to hear some of this historic two-night stand was through a series of seven-inch and 12-inch records released in 1983 exclusively in the U.K.
Released on September 20, 2011, “Live At The Marquee Club” combines those hard-to-find cuts with five previously unreleased songs, including the title track from the band’s hard-rocking debut, “Under The Blade”, and covers of the SHANGRI-LAS‘ “Leader Of The Pack” and the SLADE version of the R&B staple “Let The Good Times Roll”. The album also includes the first-ever public performance of “You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll”, which would surface just three months later on the band’s second album. Bits of Snider‘s legendary stage banter — also unreleased — can be heard interspersed between a few songs.
