Formed in Hollywood, California in 1990 by LIZZIE GREY and TIMOTHY JAY - the remaining members of both the bands ULTRA POP and LONDON (whose former members at one time or another included such famous rock stars as Nikki Sixx/MOTLEY CRUE, Izzy, Steven, Slash/GUNS N ROSES, Fred Coury/CINDERELLA and Blackie Lawless/WASP among others), SPIDERS & SNAKES quickly became a hit in the U.S. underground with fans of Glam Rock, Glitter Rock and the “Hair Metal” Music Scene.
Mixing heavy guitars and big drums with melodic pop vocals and Beatles-like vocal harmonies, SPIDERS & SNAKES eventually broke out on the international music circuit via their mid-90's music video for the Beatles-like ballad called "Lost For Words" which the band filmed and recorded in both English and Spanish. Their album 2000 RETRO was released by RKD RECORDS thru RED/SONY DISTRIBUTION and MTV worldwide picked up the video for major airplay. After back to back releases ODDITIES: THE GLITTER YEARS (which contained a mini science fiction paperback inside) and ASTRO POP (a punk-pop glitter rock album rivaling GREEN DAY for its catchy pop melodies) the band eventually signed with Los Angeles Record Label CLEOPATRA RECORDS, releasing their hard-rock sounding CD "London Daze" in 2000 which featured 3 bonus tracks with Nikki Sixx from MOTLEY CRUE (recorded earlier in his career).
In 2006, SPIDERS & SNAKES signed their first Asian Record deal with BIG M.F./Zain Records in Tokyo, JAPAN releasing the album "Hollywood Ghosts" which featured tracks with Angelo Moore from FISHBONE on saxophone. "Hollywood Ghosts" includes a bonus DVD with over 15 music videos (live and studio) that drew international rave reviews in respected press comparing SPIDERS & SNAKES to an early DAVID BOWIE, the British glam rock band MOTT THE HOOPLE, T-REX and even THE BEATLES. SPIDERS & SNAKES are currently recording their eighth (8th) album entitled "Melodrama" with producer GAVIN ROSS (FISHBONE, TRACII GUNS from LA GUNS) in Burbank, California and are hoping to eventually tour in Asia in 2007.
