GIBSON TOUR BUS at Midwest Rockfest 2010–The perfect place for interviews with band members Scott LaFlamme and Trent Anderson of ‘Bang Tango’.

BANG TANGO SCOTT LAFLAMME (COMPLETE INTERVIEW)

I had the wonderful opportunity to interview two of the members of Bang Tango at the Midwest Rockfest 2010 Event on the Gibson tour bus after looking for a cool place to do interviews so everyone could get out of the heat for awhile. Of course, a small storm moved through so all of us were out on the rain before doing the interview. I hope you will enjoy these fantastic musicians and what they told Afresh during an exclusive interview. Scott LaFlamme has filled the shoes for Alex Grossi as the new guitarist of the group, Bang Tango.  Scott  says he loves the enthusiasm of the group, and tightness of the band overall, and song writing with the original member Joe Leste’.  By Anne Shiever

ABOUT BANG TANGO

Although Bang Tango was often lumped in with the whole 80’s glam metal movement (perhaps due to their pretty-boy looks and the fact that they hailed from Los Angeles), the hard-rockin’ quintet was one a few L.A. glam groups to incorporate funk into its sound – around the same time as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Faith No More made it acceptable to do so. Their line up consisted of Joe Leste’ (Vocals), Kyle Stevens (Guitar), Mark Knight (Guitar), Kyle Kyle (Bass), and Tigg Ketler (Drums), and piqued the interest of Mechanic/MCA shortly after the quintet issued their first in-concert recordings, 1987’s “Live Injection”.

Their major-label debut, Psycho Cafe, was issued in 1989. MTV’s Headbangers Ball gave significant air time to their single “Someone Like You”, and eventually it became a mainstay on the dial MTV charts. The group continued to issue albums throughout the early 1990’s including “Dancin’ On Coals”, “Ain’t No Jive…Live!” and the critically acclaimed “Love After Death”.

In 2000, Leste’ formed a more modern-sounding alt-metal outfit, Beautiful Creatures, issuing a self-titled debut the same year on Warner Brothers. Beautiful Creatures toured as part of the 2001 Ozzfest as well as supporting KISS on a number of dates.

Bang Tango has since produced two studio albums this decade, “Ready To Go” (2004) and “From The Hip”(2006). The band is currently in the studio working on their next record with producer Larry Elyea (Disturbed, Sevendust, Eminem), which is due out later this year.

Bang Tango’s current line-up is Joe Leste’ (Vocals), Scott LaFlamme (Guitar), Anthony Focx (Guitar), Lance Eric (Bass) and Trent Anderson (Drums).
