Pretty Poison...



Very little info about Pretty Poison other than the fact that it's an American band formed in 1981 in Philadelphia and originally composed of Jade Starling, Whey Cooler and Kaya Pryor. Group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the title "Catch me (I’m falling)" released in 1987. Single which will be a significant success on a planetary level that year. As such alone, he deserved this article. To discover or rediscover. Discography (among others ...) :

  • Gimme gimme your autograph 1981

  • No tears 1982

  • Expiration 1983

  • Nighttime 1984

  • Catch me (I’m falling) 1987

  • When I look into your eyes 1988

  • Better, better, be good to me 1992



Clips :


1981 ... a first title which spins at the speed of light. Not sure that at this speed the public follows en masse ...



1982 ... an underground style to say the least. Not on once again that the public follows massively. But there is something for all tastes as they say ...



1984 ... a definite evolution, both in terms of style and sound. It was high time because the ship was taking water from all sides. The worst is avoided ...



1987 ... then THIS title comes ! A title was enough to make them fit One Shot into the musical legend of the 80s. Like what, you just need to be a little patient and especially to have a minimum of inspiration. HU-GE !



1988 ... when you see what the band did when they started out and what they do today, the least we can say is that the metamorphosis is most impressive



1992 ... big 4 years air hole and they are back the following decade. They deliver here a title of obvious quality but which will not be enough to put them back in the race for a long time ...
