Pretty Poison

 

Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, Pretty Poison started out as a new wave outfit in 1981. Fronted by the diminutive and gorgeous Jade Starling, they signed to Svengali Records 1n 1982, and enjoyed regional success, especially with the regional dance hit “Nighttime.” Their music in the early part of the 1980’s was dark and atmospheric, sounding nothing like the dance pop which was to follow.

However, in 1987, Pretty Poison signed to Virgin Records. With heavy MTV exposure, “Catch Me, I’m Falling” became a top ten U.S. Billboard Hot 100 hit, peaking at number eight. The song also went to number one on the dance chart, as well as being featured in the film “Hiding Out.” The B-side contained a shorter Spanish vocal. A re-recorded version of “Nighttime” became their second Hot 100 hit, climbing to number thirty-six.

Pretty Poison had several more dance chart entries, the most recent being a new version of “Catch Me (I’m Falling)” which hit number forty-three in 1998.

They charted for the first time in 1984 with the song "Nighttime", which hit number 14 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart. "Nighttime" was released on the band's own Svengali record label. In 1987 their song "Catch Me (I'm Falling)" was featured in the Jon Cryer movie Hiding Out, and with heavy MTV exposure, it became a top 10 U.S. Billboard Hot 100 hit, peaking at #8. The song also went to #1 on the dance chart. The B-side contained a shorter "Spanish Mix" vocal. A re-recorded version of "Nighttime" became their second Hot 100 hit, climbing to number 36. Pretty Poison opened for The Clockmen in May 1986 at Drexel University's "Battle of the Bands".

Pretty Poison had several more dance chart entries, the most recent being a new version of "Catch Me (I'm Falling)" which hit #43 in 1998.

February 2009 saw the release of new song "Finga Lickin' Good" on iTunes. A new CD was scheduled for release in the summer.
