The rock is beginning to roll for Beau Nasty ! The L.A-based hard rock band has just released its WTG debut album, Dirty But Well Dressed, featuring the premier radio track and video, “Shake It”. Beginning November 10, 1989, Beau Nasty will undertake their first national tour, supporting Loverboy.
Beau Nasty is comprised of five strong and distinctive personalities, all hand-picked by lead vocalist Mark Anthony Fretz: Brian young and George Bernhardt on guitars, Doug Baker on bass, and drummer Mike Terrana. In this chain, says mark, there are no weak links: “When I got Beau Nasty together, I chose the best musicians I had ever played with. Beau Nasty now represents everything I’ll ever need”.
Dirty but Well-Dressed contains ten tough tunes, eight of them written by members of Beau Nasty; there’s also a swaggering cover of The Clovers’ 1959 classic, “Love Potion #9”. Dirty But Well-Dressed was produced by Paul Winger, with Beau Hill as executive producer. The razor-sharp mix was done by Steve Thompson and Michael Barbiero, best known for their work with Guns ‘N’ Roses and Alice Cooper. Beau Nasty’s “Shake It” video is a powerful performance piece with attitude to spare, directed by Jeff Zimmerman (who’s worked with Bon Jovi, Motley Crue and Prince, among others)
