    Former KIDZ Vocalist Brad Sinsel formed the Hard Rock band TKO in Seattle, Washington in 1977 with guitarist Rick Pierce.
    TKO released their debut LP, "Let It Roll", two years later on the Infinity Records label.
    It sold well in their home state, but soon after the album's release Infinity Records went bust, leaving TKO without a deal.
    By 1981, the band was headlining large shows in Seattle and touring as the opening act for the likes of AC/DC, VAN HALEN, HEART, THE KINKS, ANGEL and CHEAP TRICK.
    TKO went through several personnel changes during the early 1980's, with Sinsel being the sole survivor from the "Let It Roll" line up by 1981.
    In collaboration with the Hawaii based producer Rick Keefer, the band recorded the classic "In Your Face" album in 1981.
    The band released a single, "Give Into The Night" through Sea West Records in 1982, which showed TKO now boasted a tougher, leaner sound than in their early days.
    However, the "In Your Face" album went un-released until 1984, by which time the entire band that had recorded it, bar Sinsel, had moved on to other things.
    By the time the album was released, guitarist Adam Brenner had gone solo re-billed as ADAM BOMB to cut his "Fatal Attraction" album, first released in Japan before Brenner inked a deal in America with Geffen.
    Bassist Evan Sheely and Drummer Gary Thompson joined forces with another ex-TKO member, guitarist Rick Pierce in Q5.
    Q5 achieved a modest degree of success, releasing two albums, "Steel The Light" and "When The Mirror Cracks".
    Combat Records had signed TKO and released "In Your Face", licensing the album to Music For Nations for Europe, where it sold well and got great reviews.
    In order for the band to continue Sinsel hired former CULPRIT guitarist Kjartan Kristofferson and bassist Scott Earl along with ex STRIKE and RANDY HANSEN BAND drummer Ken Mary.
    After Sinsel contributed vocals to THRASHER's "Burning At The Speed Of Light" album, TKO started work on a new album.
    That album, "Below The Belt", was issued in 1986, featuring, like it's predecessor, Brad's gorgeous wife Suzie Sinsel on the cover.
    "Below The Belt", continued in the same tough Hard Rock vein as the previous album, but also showed a more melodic side on occassion.
    Ken Mary then left the band to join first CHASTAIN, then FIFTH ANGEL, subsequently hooking up with HOUSE OF LORDS and ALICE COOPER.
    TKO sadly broke up in 1987, with Sinsel then recording an album's worth of demos as "Native Tongues", with producer Rick Keefer.
    Abandoning the more commercial direction of "Native Tongues", Sinsel then teamed up with Rick Pierce once again in the short-lived SUICIDE SQUAD, releasing the 4 song 1988 "Live It While You Can" EP.
    Around this time, ex-TKO guitarist Adam Brenner aka Adam Bomb, formed a new act with ex-DOGS D'AMOUR bassist Steve James. Called LAST BANDITS, they recorded a one off album in 1991.
    Meanwhile Brad Sinsel's new band WAR BABIES had signed a deal with Columbia Records, recording a lone self-titled album in 1992, featuring the tracks "Hang Me Up" and "Cry Yourself To Sleep", co-written by Sinsel and KISS frontman Paul Stanley.
    Ironically for Seattle legend Sinsel, the War Babies album was released just as "Grunge" hit big, and as a result the album didn't get the attention (or sales) it deserved.
    War Babies lost their deal in 1993, and split up soon afterwards.
    In 1997, TKO reunited for a one-off performance as part of Seattle's "Pain In The Grass" concert series.
    Sinsel now fronts AMERICAN STANDARD alongside former FLIPP guitarist Brynn Arens.
