Profile Information

Name
NAKED TRUTH
About Me
This Atlanta, Georgia-based quartet originated in the local hardcore scene in
1988, although the individual band members arrived from far afield: vocalist
Doug Watts came from Detroit, bassist Jeff from Harlem, New York, and drummer
Bernard Dawson from Los Angeles, while Jimmie Westley was the only Georgia
native, from Savannah. Life was initially tough for a black metal band in
Georgia, but the dreadlocked groups singer (D.WATTS) caught the interest of former Clash manager Bernie Rhodes, and he helped the band sign to Sony and they relocated to London, after meeting bassist London-born Kwame Boaten the band was ready for the road . GREEN WITH RAGE introduced Naked Truth's raw, aggressive sound, which was given an individual slant by jazz and funk influences. Next they offered up READ BETWEEN THE LINES EP. The band were fortunate to pick up a UK tour with Scat Opera and Little Angels, after a Motörhead support slot was lost due to a tour cancellation by lead singer (Lemmy), The band built up a cult following, helped by a series of London residencies, before their next release FIGHT appeared, showing the band's ability to mix styles as diverse as jazz and death metal seamlessly and convincingly, while Watts supplied varied vocals, from rap to all-out hardcore rage, and intelligent lyrics.

Greetings, NT! Like the song, very much.  A heavy (metal?) band with modern production and, more importantly, modern playing. I was once an Atlantan, in the 80's as well, in a series of bands (Synchro System, named after Sunny Ade but modeled more after a punk  Fela, and Confrontation, a reggae band that covered Cosmic Slop, Black Uhuru, and punky dub originals). Best to you guys going forward!
