The Dolls, peddling trans-gender posturing and incendiary rock 'n' roll, were dumped by the record business after making just two albums. But their influence lived on when Malcolm McLaren injected the last of The Dolls' life blood into the Sex Pistols and changed pop forever. From punk to grunge, practically every new sensation in contemporary rock has been a delayed reaction to The New York Dolls.

Too Much Too Soon celebrates all the glorious sleaze and excess of the Dolls' brief auto-destruct career through interviews with the survivors, including band members, managers, roadies, groupies and hangers-on. The result is the ultimate saga of unrepentant rock 'n' roll and debauchery.

This updated edition includes details of the band's reunion for Morrissey's Meltdown event in 2004, as well as the tragic death of Arthur Cane shortly afterwards.

Funk Shui Debut Album: True

Recorded in the Spring of 2004, True is Funk Shui's debut album.  Considered among the best of the independent releases, it has been described as follows by CDBaby (an online music retailer) :   Blending soul, jazz and twangs of retro r'n'b, Funk Shui will light up the eyes of the Liquid Soul and Brand New Heavies fan. Funking it all the way from Denver, Colorado, these folks are quickly making a name for themselves the way they wrap up a well-seated groove with sassy vocals, a back-talking horn section and that trippy, psychedelic organ line giving "True" a zesty 70's vibe. Whether it's party music, chillin' music or sexy background seduction music you're after, these funkers bring the perfect mix of the hip, the trendy and the urban bounce while keeping it grounded, fun and casual. With all that to offer, they'll appeal to the jam band connoisseurs as well. Super fly.

Funk Shui Debut Album: True

Back in 2003, I created a group known as Funk Shui, a Jazz, RnB, Funk and Rock group based in Denver, Colorado. The group consisted of a trio: drums, bass and guitar/vocalist, with myself as the guitarist, singer and songwriter.After many rehearsal nights, some gigging, lots of song writing and many hours recording in the studio, Funk Shui released its debut album:  TRUE.  From our soundcloud.com posting, you can listen to the songs listed below.  The influences on the album are as follows:  Bob Marley, Santana, The Motown Funk Brothers, 70's Jazz Vibe from Chuck Mangione to George Benson and a bit of old school Heavy Rock (Pat Travers, Peter Frampton and more).  Arguably, we created a wonderful cornocopia of sounds that have been melded together to create something beautiful and unique.  Here's what CDBaby.com had to say about it:  Blending soul, jazz and twangs of retro r'n'b, Funk Shui will light up the eyes of the Liquid Soul and Brand New Heavies fan. Funking it all the way from Denver, Colorado, these folks are quickly making a name for themselves the way they wrap up a well-seated groove with sassy vocals, a back-talking horn section and that trippy, psychedelic organ line giving "True" a zesty 70's vibe. Whether it's party music, chillin' music or sexy background seduction music you're after, these funkers bring the perfect mix of the hip, the trendy and the urban bounce while keeping it grounded, fun and casual. With all that to offer, they'll appeal to the jam band connoisseurs as well. Super fly.
