Child's Play United States
Child's Play were a sleaze band that got lumped in with the whole make-up and hairspray genre, despite being much more blue collar and in tune with their southern blues roots. Nicky Kay (guitar), Idzi (bass) and John Allen (drums) formed the group in Baltimore, Maryland. With the addition of vocalist/guitarist Brian Jack, the band started to gain a large following on the east coast. In 1989 Child's Play finally got the break they were looking for when they signed to Chrysalis records.
