Formed in Van Nuys, CA, in 1987 by Finnish-born transplant Georg Dolivo (Bon
Scott-cloned vocals and guitar), lead guitarist Greg Fields, bassist Reeve
Downes, and drummer Liam Jason, Rhino Bucket perfectly replicated AC/DC's raw,
three-chord boogie to perfection on their self-titled debut album. But while
they were quickly embraced by the U.K. and European press, the band was faced
with nothing but apathy and scorn in America, where they were pegged as rip-off
artists and received little promotional support from their label. Despite the
inclusion of one of its tracks, "Ride With Yourself," in Mike Myers' popular
Wayne's World movie, their aptly titled second album, 1992's Get Used to It,
also failed to make any headway, and the band was soon unceremoniously dropped
by Reprise. Still they soldiered on, and in an ironic twist of fate, recruited
former AC/DC skin-pounder Simon Wright to replace the departed Liam Jason for
their third album, 1994's independently released Pain. Rhino Bucket finally
called it a day the following year, but eventually re-formed in 2001 with plans
to record a new album. Interestingly, the new lineup included original drummer
Liam Jason, billed as Jackie Enx following sexual reassignment surgery. After
a lengthy hiatus, the group returned in 2006 with And Then It Got Ugly.
