band from the early 90s. Trixter
just caught the tail end of the 80s metal wave or Hair Metal
. The band formed in Paramus, New Jersey and was comprised of Peter Loran
, Steve Brown
, P.J. Farley
, and Mark "Gus" Scott
. Their first album, Trixter
, did pretty well, it went gold. It also feature the cover of a Trixter comic book
made about the band. Their second was a flop and the band was history.
Similar to Poison, Cinderella, and Bon Jovi, but more formulaic. The band is a perfect example of the wave of "corporate" bands that flooded the airwaves just before alternative rock broke out. I guess I don't have to admit it but I will, I think I had their self-titled album on Tape.
