HAVANA 3 A.M. self titled 1991

by request

Artist Biography by

Texas Glitter & Tombstone Tales
Taking their name from an obscure Pérez Prado album, Havana 3 A.M. included former Clash bassist Paul Simonon, guitarist Gary Myrick (ex-Figures), and lead singer Nigel Dixon from Whirlwind. With Simonon aboard, there was built-in interest for their debut release, issued through IRS Records in spring 1991. Blending roots rock and punk, it received generally solid reviews and notched a minor radio hit with "Reach the Rock," and the band toured extensively promoting it. Simonon left the band afterwards to pursue a career in art and Dixon passed away from cancer. Myrick rebuilt the band with bass player Tom Felicetta and drummer Jamie Chez, releasing Texas Glitter & Tombstone Tales in 1996. It would be the only other release under the Havana 3 A.M. moniker, as Myrick would return to a solo career with 2001's Waltz of the Scarecrow King, which found him working with noted producer Tchad Blake
