If you liked BULLETBOYS, you’d probably like Sweet F.A. as well. The band was formed in Indiana and got off to a wonderful and promising start. They played their first gig in November 1988 and were signed to a major label just 11 months later.
The debut album "Stick to your Guns" was a great album and featured excellent singles like "Prince of the City" and "Rhythm of Action". Despite the potential of the album it didn’t do well on the charts and MCA dropped the band in late 1990. At this time the band also dropped bassist Jim Quick (Quiggins).
The band disappeared from the music scene shortly after "Temptation" was released. In 2005 Metal Sludge did a 20 Questions interview with Tricky Lane. Other than that interview and a copycat glam band in the U.K. using the name Sweet F.A. they seemed to have simply vanished. There were rumors in 2007 that Sweet F.A. were reuniting and preparing for a new tour. One of our affiliate shows The Hair Metal Mansion with Andrew the Axeman featured an interview with singer Steven DeLong in 2009, at that time it seems as if Sweet F.A. was indeed touring again.
While we can’t provide a lot of information about what the guys from Sweet F.A. are up to today we can play their music for you as part of our Vintage Spotlight series on The Manamal Streaming Radio. Enjoy!
