ANGEL ‘THE CASABLANCA YEARS’ Out Now

Punky Meadows and Frank Dimino Play First Ever UK Angel Shows

‘Angel: The Casablanca Years’, is a mammoth seven-CD set produced with the cooperation of the band. This boxed set brings together the band’s entire studio output of six albums during the years they were signed to Casablanca Records as well as a seventh disc that contains mono mixes, single edits, soundtrack contributions, and other rarities.

Discovered by Gene Simmons from Kiss, Angel’s image of dressing in all white was in contrast to Kiss, which wore black. Angel sported an androgynous image and elaborate stage sets. The band built up a huge cult following over the years and in recent years have reformed for one-off shows and solo gigs

 Their first album was the self-titled ‘Angel’ (1975) and consisted of guitarist Punky Meadows, bassist Mickie Jones, vocalist Frank DiMino, keyboardist Gregg Giuffria, and drummer Barry Brandt. This line-up would hold for the following two albums, ‘Helluva Band’ (1976) and ‘On Earth As It Is In Heaven’ (1977), after which Jones would be replaced by Felix Robinson.

 This followed with the release of ‘White Hot’ (1977) which spawned the single ‘Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore’, which went to number 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1978. The single spent eight weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Their fifth album was originally titled ‘Bad Publicity’ but was changed to ‘Sinful’ (1979) and was the last studio album from the band. This was followed by the release of ‘Live Without A New’ (1980) and was the final album from the band before they broke up.

 The seventh disc is a collection of rare edits and alternate versions. Angel expert Dave Reynolds has supplied a new set of sleeve notes giving an incredible insight into the history of the band in a 28-booklet loaded with rare photos and memorabilia.

 Punky Meadows and Frank Dimino of ANGEL are coming to the UK and performing a full ANGEL set for the first time ever in the UK. Tickets are available from

    I’ve been having some problems compiling my lists as of
    late. I’m running this in hopes of creating
    a new up to date list. Stay tuned and visit my website soon. I hope
    to add a new list in the not so distant future.

    I added a new blog post yesterday. There’s a smaller list than usual in it.
    I’m currently working on a bigger list. It’s going to take some time to compile it.
    I hope all of you are having a good week. I’m
    planning on doing some design changes to my site. I’m also thinking about adding some new things too.
    I’ll talk more about that in the days and weeks to come.
