NEW RELEASES FROM FNA RECORDS:
Cleavage finally drops a pair of long awaited releases to the pleasure of hard rock fans the world over!
Twenty-Two years after releasing “The Demo”,
Cleavage re-releases this highly sought after album with eight
additional bonus tracks. The band has also compiled a much anticipated
18 track album of never before released material entitled “XOXO”
New Jersey is obviously known for its great hard rock exports like Bon Jovi and Skid Row. In the early 90's, NJ Rocker's Cleavage,
were chomping at the bit, prepping to be the “Next Big Band from the
Garden State”. And the fans were right there in stride; calling into
radio stations (requesting spins of Cleavage tracks), resulting in the
band often beating out bands like Bon Jovi and Skid Row on the nightly
local countdown programs.
Cleavage was a band that had it all – Catchy melodic songs, an
over-the-top live show, an ever-growing fan base, major label interest,
and girls, and girls, and more girls!
Cleavage was the brain child of “Hollywood Tease” guitarist and songwriter Larry Ganci.
In the late 80's Hollywood Tease was the first hard rock band to be
signed to the famous rap label “Sugar Hill Records” and their
independent offshoot “Bon Ami Records”. As the record label was going
through a transition, Larry started a cover band called “Cleavage” with
the members of a band he was producing. “Cleavage”, soon realized that
they had something special and transitioned from a cover band to one of
the most respected local bands on the New Jersey circuit.
A few personnel changes resulted in a tight knit band that commanded the
respect of fans and industry people alike. Cleavage was composed of Larry Ganci (vocals), brothers Ronnie (guitar) and Mike Parkes (bass), and Scott “Nazz” (drums).
With the band in full effect and Larry at the helm, Cleavage entered the
studio and churned out what some consider one of the best hard rock,
self-released albums (“The Demo”) to ever hit the music scene. With
strong comparisons to Bon Jovi and ACDC, and having that classic blue
collar New Jersey sound with a tinge of metal edge, the album quickly
sold out. A limited second pressing was made with an extra track .That
also sold out quickly. This was due to heavy local radio support, which
in turn led to an increase in show attendance and demand for the band.
In fact, one fan favorite - “15 Gets Ya 20” held the #1 Local spot for
several weeks in a row on WSOU. Within one year's time, Cleavage became a
top draw headlining act and local opener for national acts. A
management deal and showcases at legendary clubs like the China Club
would follow. Then came the major label interest. And then came
With a resurgence of interest in 80's style hard rock and the loyalty of
those who never wavered, it became evident that the Cleavage material
was a no-brainer when it came to albums needing a re-release. With very
few copies ever printed of the original 1990/1991 releases, both
versions of the album “Demos” became collectible, commanding large sums
of money on the market. The problem with this is that the high price
keeps some fans who want the music from ever obtaining it. So FnA
Records approached the band and Cleavage decided it was time to make
their music available to all fans at a fair price. Cleavage also
mentioned that they had enough tracks recorded to not only add bonus
tracks to “The Demo”, but to also release an album of never-before-heard
material recorded from the same time period.
Available exclusively from FnA Records (www.fnarecords.net), are two fully remastered albums by Cleavage entitled “15 Gets Ya 20” and “XOXO”.
“15 Gets Ya 20” includes all the tracks from the highly-sought after
“The Demo” album. Additionally, 8 bonus tracks have been added including
the Billboard winning track “Time May Rust” and an unedited version of
the bands classic “Blood and Wine”. All the newly added tracks are just
as catchy, just as hooky, and just as rockin' as the fans will
remember. And for those that are new to the music of Cleavage – they
will finally have the chance to hear one of the best ever self-produced,
eighties style, indie hard rock albums of all time. But it doesn't
stop there. The band has opted to release another album of unreleased
tracks making all of Cleavage's material available to fans around the
world – old and new alike. The second album entitled “XOXO” is packed
with high-energy hard rock gems, With seventeen tracks in all; “XOXO” is
a rocker's paradise with a few obligatory ballads.
Do yourself a favor - Expose yourself to Cleavage - and don't miss out on one of head banging hard rock's absolute 'Diamonds In The Rough'. 15 Gets Ya 20 and XOXO are available individually, as a package deal, and in an autographed Fan Pack version. Available at FnA Records, www.FnARecords.net.
