    Info (from Musicmight)
    Manchester Glamsters previously known as VENOM, the original line-up comprised of vocalist Mark Anthony, guitarists Red Hot Red (real name Ian Burke) and Paul Diamond (real name Paul Hopwood), bassist Gary Maunsell and drummer Tony Fitzgerald. A line-up change soon ensued with Fitzgerald departing in favour of Bernie Emerald (real name Bernard Nuttal). The group released a 5 track demo in early 1982 which gained them much favourable publicity for their overtly Glam stance. After changing names from VENOM to ROX, following irate complaints from the Newcastle based Black Metal VENOM, the band dispensed with the services of Anthony and drafted in former roadie "Kick Ass" Kevin Kozak (real name Kevin Reid).

    The re-branded group made their live debut at the Peel Hotel in Leeds during 1982 that coincided with the release of a self-financed, three track EP, 'Hot Love In The City', on their own Teen Teaze label. However, later in the year Maunsell was replaced by ex LIPSTICK KILLERS bassist Billy Beaman. He appears on the 'Krazy Kuts' EP, the band having gained a deal with Music For Nations. Kozak was kicked out in August 1983 in favour of vocalist Mark Savage, who turned out to be original member Mark Anthony going under a pseudonym.

    The album 'Violent Breed' witnessed a direct change from Glam to a more Metallised look and sound. ROX promptly toured Britain as support to QUIET RIOT in 1984. Following the tour, ROX split shortly after with Diamond forming a new act JAILBAIT with guitarist VINNY BURNS (later to join DARE, ASIA, ULTRAVOX and TEN) and ex-TRAX drummer Clive Southgate before later turning up in AORsters TORINO. Kozak formed a new band titled ARCADE with guitarist Chris Jacques and bassist Antonio Scatigno and also enjoyed a brief flirtation with Pop Rock in SEBASTIAN AND THE BLUE BOY. Kozak has since forged a successful career for himself producing artwork for a host of Now And Then Records bands, including CROWN OF THORNS and TEN.
