Payola$

Inquiries and discussions about new wave artists and what happened to them.

Payola$

Postby newwavepopman » Mon Apr 14, 2003 10:11 am

Any info on whatever happened to these guys? All I know is that after they broke up,they did one great album on the Capitol label,under their last names as "Rock And Hyde" The only other thing I know about the Payola$ was they were from Canada,and had a minor charted hit in "Eyes Of A Stranger" which I remember seeing the video for once on MTV,but that was eons ago.

You can catch "Eyes of a Stranger" on the digital cable channel VH-1 Classic. They show it occasionally.

Apparently, the Payolas were HUGE in Canada. A good source of info on bands is www.allmusic.com. Just do a search for who you are interested

Bob Rock, guitarist of Payolas, spends his time producing artists like Metallica, Bon Jovi, etc. Was an in-demand producer in the mid to late '90s.

Paul Hyde has released solo albums in Canada, but I'm not sure how recent...

it sounds hard to believe that Bob Rock would produce heavy metal acts but I believe what you say.

The Payola$ had some exposure in America with 'Eyes of A Stranger' thanks to the Valley Girl movie, but their only charting single in America was 'Here's the World For Ya' in 1985. It was released under 'Paul Hyde & The Payola$' and it reached #84 on the

The guy who sterilized The Payola$ (er, excuse me, <FONT SIZE="6">[b]PAUL HYDE[/b]</FONT> <FONT SIZE="1">and the Payolas</FONT>) has his "reality" show debuting on FOX this Sunday. I can only hope his two stepbrats give him hell to make up for it!
