In England 1972 the HOLLYWOOD  BRATS were shopping at thrift stores for huge platform boots, feather boas, women's blouses, applying tons of makeup and nail polish and banging out fast paced rockers. Meanwhile over the water The New York Dolls were doing the same. Of course the Dolls went down in history getting all the plaudits and a good record deal with Mercury before royally fucking up. The Brats however got nothing except a record deal with some Mafiosi care of Keith Moon who then refused to release their record. Unsurprisingly the Brats aren't well known except to the punk cognoscenti. The band disbanded in 1974 and one year after was made its only one album with homonimous name. Two ex-members of Hollywood Brats will formed in 1976 the punk band The Boys and will make a cover "Sik on you" of their first band.
