Stage Dolls

Stage Dolls

Profile:
A popular trio from the city of Trondheim - the capital city of Norwegian Hard Rock. Stage Dolls quickly earned themselves a strong reputation for producing an authentic, glossy American sound married to some exceptional songs. The group's original line-up featured drummer Erlend Antonsen for the debut 'Soldiers Gun' record, produced by Bjørn Nessjø¸ at Nidaros Studios in Trondheim in the Autumn of 1982. Alongside the core personnel of vocalist / guitarist Torstein Flakne, previously a member of The Kids (3), the ex-Hot Lips duo of bassist Terje Storli and Erlend Antonsen 'Soldiers Gun' also incorporated a guesting Gunnar Anders Berg with a guitar solo on the track 'Ten Tons' and keyboards courtesy of Bård Svendsen.

The first album was a self financed affair, which at first provoked little interest from the record companies. However, Polydor would be intrigued enough to ask for a potential single resulting in the track 'Soldiers Gun'. Subsequently a deal was struck. Touring across Norway in December of 1984 had the band acting as openers to TNT (15) and having generated fan enthusiasm on the live circuit 'Soldiers Gun' soon surpassed the 20,000 sales mark.
