Often criticized for following whatever musical trend was popular at the time, Shotgun Messiah managed to transform from glam to sleaze to industrial with varying results. The band was originally known as Kingpin, the Swedish band consisting of Zimmy J. San (vocals), Harry K. Cody (guitar), Tim Tim Skold (bass) and Stixx Galore (drums) were making waves in their homeland in the mid 80s. Their debut album ‘Welcome To Bop City’ was released in 1988 and featured the group in outrageous haircuts and outfits. With the album doing great locally the boys decided to uproot and head for the bright lights of the late 80s Los Angeles rock scene. Upon their arrival, Kingpin changed their name to Shotgun Messiah, toned down their image slightly and remixed ‘Welcome To Bop City’ as ‘Shotgun Messiah’. The album reached the Billboard Top 100 and the band was doing respectable business.
