Buzz buzz buzz. Bubblegum has got a brand new taste. Glitzine's editor and founder Andreas Persson has, under the incarnation of Sodapop Star, formed a glitterpunk/bubblepop project destined for superstar status. The Band is called Sugar Shock and also features well-known rockstars Christy Flame on guitars and Cherry Roze on drums. The Band are currently causing teardrops in every teenage girl's twinkling eyes. Sugar Shock is all about bubblegum, sugarplums, milkshakes, heartaches, backseat blues, arcade abuse, bananasplits, top 40 hits, candycane's, lovers lane, barbed wire, schreechin tires, downtown, merry-go round's, neon lights, summer nights, a beautiful outside and rollercoaster rides.

Sugar Shock is currently without a bassist. Anyone interested should mail: sugarshocks@hotmail.com. To be a part of the poseur-parade you'd better; have an attitude with a capital A, a fetish for flamboyance and flair, know how to mix a shock rock cocktail, blow bubbles that never burst... bla bla. By the way, you must also know how to play bass and it would be good if you are located somewhere in the Örebro-Göteborg area. Anyone interested should mail: sugarshocks@hotmail.com

For those of you that do not live in the US of A, Jesse Camp - an MTV VJ - finally released his much-hyped debut album. The guy, who is only 19 yr old, is a HUGE glam/sleaze fan and sports a great look a la Glamour Punks. He has been claiming that Glam will hit the airwaves again soon and I am starting to believe him. His album is a fun, punk-ridden slice of sleaze metal and features every possible guest star. Stay tuned for a Glitzine review.

Buckcherry is enjoying great airplay on both KROQ & KLOS in LA, something extremely uncommon for a sleaze band. The guys just sold out two mid-week shows at the Viper Room and the Whiskey in LA.
