The Fallen Angels was formed in 1984 with Knox (singer/songwriter from the Vibrators) on vocals and guitar, with the Hanoi Rocks rhythm section of Sam Yaffa on bass, the late Razzle on drums, and Nasty Suicide on rhythm and some lead guitar. Also guesting on the first album were Cosmic Ted and the Psychedelic Kid, (Mike Monroe and Andy McCoy respectively). The band came about because Knox was on the same management as Hanoi Rocks and had a lot of songs he wanted to do. One of Hanoi’s manager’s Richard Bishop had the bright idea of putting Knox together with Hanoi Rocks to record an album. The album was rehearsed and recorded at the now legendary Alaska Studios down under the arches at Waterloo, London. The album band never played live though Nasty Suicide did guest at a London gig.
The first release was the single “Amphetamine Blue” (FALL 022) followed by the album “FALLEN ANGELS” (FALL LP 23) (with a cover painting by Knox depicting a murder scene outside the 100 Club in London’s Oxford Street), and then the single and 12″ “Inner Planet Love/Precious Heart”
