WANG DANG SWEET THUNDER OF ROCK!

Paul Diamond Blow rocks like no other with his sexy Marshall-driven brand of rocket-fueled hard rockin' glam/punk party rock. Born in Sweet City Seattle and raised on a steady diet of Kiss and Ramones, Paul Diamond Blow cut his musical teeth rocking in many a punk-rockin' band (RPA, Suffocated, Berserkers) and his searing style of guitar play soon became legend. In 1998 Blow went solo and recorded and released his solo CD "WANG DANG SWEET THUNDER OF ROCK" to rave reviews. "I didn't know what the hell I was doing," says Blow about his solo effort, "but I had a good time doing it, and as I was recording Wang Dang I felt as if I was possessed by the spirits of all the dead Ramones, as well as the spirit of Ace Frehley even though he isn't dead yet. But Ace was there, I swear it." Fueled by whiskey sours and inspired by the love of bimbos everywhere, Blow took his act on the road with his band Paul Diamond Blow & The Ace Diamond Bimbos.

The Ace Diamond Bimbos lasted one year but fell apart in 2001 in a murky haze of scandal and lawsuits. Paul Diamond Blow later resurrected himself as a solo acoustic performer singer/songwriter in the vein of "Johnny Thunders on acid with a touch of Axl Rose" and in 2005 formed his current punk/glam band the Space Cretins.

HERE'S WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING ABOUT PAUL DIAMOND BLOW & THE ACE DIAMOND BIMBOS, WANG DANG SWEET THUNDER OF ROCK!:
"This sounds like NY bludgeon rock circa '75 or something. With lyrics like "I get my power from Whiskey Sour", I tend to think of the awesome talents of Handsome Dick Manitoba..."John Mack, Backfire

"The singer: a rock star in the making. He's a cross between Ozzy, David Lee Roth, Keith Morris of the Circle Jerks, with a little Axl thrown in for good measure. The music: pure road rawk--full of AC/DC riffs and Motorhead tempos." Rod Moody, Backfire

"Some kind of '70's glam rock stuff that rocks...The guy can play, the band is cool, got the sound down." Maximum Rock'n'roll

Remember those comic book matchups like Spiderman vs. Superman? Well, this is KISS vs. Motorhead with AC/DC as the funny sidekick. A blast of cosmic rays mutates them into one sleazy, rocking, hairy-chested monster.

Thank God for stupid rock! There's enough seriousness in the world and sometimes you just gotta get dumb. Paul Diamond Blow & the Ace Diamond Bimbos aren't into showing off and acting smart, they'd rather play their KISS and Ramones inspired four-four rock... Paul Diamond Blow has a great rock voice (better than Paul Stanley's), and a great sense on how to write a short, fun tune.
