Famous Underground is the new project of Nick Walsh, formerly frontman of Slik Toxik, together with his long-time bassist/musical partner Laurie-Anne Green. Folks that remember life before grunge may recall the Canadian hard rock outfit kicking up a proverbial storm in the early '90s. Slik Toxik achieved Gold status in Canada with their full length Sleaze-Glamrock-debut "Doin' The Nasty" and took home the 1993 Juno Award (Canada's version of the Grammy) for Best Album of The Year. Sadly, in spite of their success, Slik Toxik called it quits in 1995 as grunge tightened its hold on the music scene. Nick Walsh and lead guitarist Rob Bruce formed the modern rock/hardrock band Raised On Mars, and together they released a self-titled debut. Walsh went on to form the hardrock band Revolver with Crash Kelly's guitarist Sean Kelly. In 2011 the band changed its name into Famous Underground. Darius Szczepaniak (Black Crowes etc.) mixed and mastered the album at Rouge Valley Studio in Toronto. Carl Begai of Canadian Hard Rock/Metal Magazine BW&BK describes the album as "It's a darker if-Metallica-were-Guns-N-Roses direction with this brand new work."
