• MOTLEY CRUE: Feeling Minnesota (1990)
    By STEVE MASCORD THE mercury in Minneapolis is plunging mercilessly past zero as Middle America wallows in snow.

US rockers Bang Tango have begun work on the follow-up to their critically acclaimed Pistol Whipped In The Bible Belt platter.

Drummer Trent Anderson tells Hot Metal the band, completed by singer Joey Leste, guitarist Scott LaFlamme and bassist Lance Eric, hope to return to the studio in December or January.

One song already slated for inclusion is “When Will I Get Paid”,  written by Johnny Blade and already recorded by Birmingham, Alabama eclecticists Player/Kommander.

“The swinging, funky aspect of our music is something we want to work on, it’s what people like about us,” said Anderson. “We were really happy with the success of Pistol Whipped and and we’re anxious to get back into the studio.

“At this stage, we haven’t booked any studio time.”

Widely-heard podcast Hair Metal Mansion named Pistol Whipped… the album of 2011. Bang Tango recently completed a European Tour.
The band are also working on a documentary, tentatively titled The Bang Tango Movie. Film maker Drew Fortier intended to complete work by the end of 2012 and planned to show it at film festivals.
