Gravity Kills

Jefferson City, Missouri, United States (1994 – 2002)

Gravity Kills was an industrial rock band which formed in Jefferson City, Missouri, United States in 1994. First appearing with a demo for Goodbye on the Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack in 1995, they had their first hit single with Guilty off their 1996 debut album Gravity Kills. Further soundtrack appearances on Escape From L.A. and Se7en along with music videos for Guilty, Enough and Blame also helped bring exposure, often having had comparisons drawn to early Nine Inch Nails by the press.

Their other singles that followed were Down from the debut (the final single released from the debut album), Falling and Alive off 1998’s Perversion and finally One Thing and a cover of Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus (with an accompanying music video) both from 2002’s Superstarved, though all were only minor successes compared to their early hits.

Following a severe injury to keyboardist Doug Firley’s hands, they were unable to complete a tour for Superstarved and broke up in 2002. Gravity Kills reunited to perform a one-off final show on October 28, 2005. There is a discussion on the Gravity Kills official forum about the possibility of the band performing another Halloween show; the topic is not a random rumor, as it was originally posted by Jeff Scheel.

Great White is a hard rock band that formed in 1978 in Los Angeles, California, United States. The band was popular during the late 80s, when their cover of Ian Hunter’s “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” became a Top 5 hit in the United States. The band’s only constant members have been Jack Russell (vocals) and Mark Kendall (guitar), with the exception of a period between 2000 and 2001 in which Kendall did not perform with the band.

The band continued to release new material into the 1990s, although none of their material charted in the United States. In 2003, the band made headlines when The Station nightclub fire led to the deaths of 100 people in West Warwick, Rhode Island, including the band’s guitarist Ty Longley, who had been a member of the band for three years. Great White made a comeback in 2007 with the release of a new album and an accompanying tour

Great White started their career as Dante Fox, playing their first gig in 1981 at The Troubadour in Hollywood, California. After recording several demos, the band chose as manager Alan Niven, who had worked for the independent distributor Greenworld in Torrance, California and had dealt with Mötley Crüe’s debut self-release. Niven suggested the name change from Dante Fox after seeing singer Jack Russell introduce Mark Kendall (guitarist) during his solo as “Mark Kendall, the Great White”, due to his natually white-blonde hair, white Fender Telecaster guitar, white jumpsuit, and white Capezio shoes.
