Kik Tracee was a 1990's glam metal band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1988, during the last years of the Glam Metal movement, before the influx of grunge and alternative music.Read More
The band was formed by lead singer Stephen Shareaux, Michael Marquis and Gregory Hex on guitars with Rob Grad on bass and Johnny Douglas on drums. The band was sometimes accused of being a clone of Guns N' Roses. Others argue that the band's complexity and depth placed them on a higher level than the average band in Los Angeles.
Kik Tracee is notable for being one of many forgotten glam metal bands, due to the popularity of the alternative music scene, despite their technical skill and musicianship. The band had a very short stint on MTV's Headbangers Ball in the 1990s. Their sound has been described as being similar to L.A. Guns, Britny Fox and Faster Pussycat.
Dana Strum of Slaughter fame produced Kik Tracee's 1991 'No Rules' under BMG Music. Despite the failings of their first album which spanned music videos for 'You're So Strange' and the title track 'No Rules', Kik Tracee released the Chris Goss-produced 1992 EP 'Field Trip' before later breaking up. A video for "In Trance" was shot for this EP.
