Reborn from the ashes of Leather Angel, when in 1985 changed its name to Jaded Lady following the departure of Debbie Wolf and Krissi North.

They wasted no time, and that same year recorded with Don Mack (Y&T) a promising first demo, which contained the songs “Rock And Roll Is not Pretty”, “Break Free” and “On The Run”.

It would be the first of the three they recorded. But before the second, the last musicians to arrive to Leather Angel were the first to abandon the Jaded Lady ship: for health reasons, Kerri James gave the sticks to Mari Jo La Roche, and Danelle Kern seeking new thrills with Lana Lane being replaced by Sylvia Cei.

Jaded Lady overcame the change and began acting again clubs, and released their second demo in 1986, again containing three songs, “Shoot Me With Your Love”, “Give It All You Got” and “(I’ve) Got An Empty Heart “.

They signed a recording contract with the label Apocalypse, but ended in failure after economic problems of the investors who lost part of their money in a stock market crisis.

Two years later they recorded what would be their last and most mature demo, featuring “Rockin ‘On The Floor”, “Shakedown”, “Silent Cry” and “Hangover City”. It was followed by a local tour again, and a brief interviewed participation in the film/documentary “The Decline Of The Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years”.

It was the last time we saw the band together, since Terry O’Leary launched a solo career, and then joined again Sylvia Cei to record a demo in 1991 under the name of Thigh High.
