The Bruce Springsteen / Bee Gees / Bowie Like idea that is "Angel Of Hell" is one of the Shark's Most Melodic and Surprising 'Early ideas" recorded either at 251 or South bay Sound in Gardena with Dan Jamale or Bill Rothberg,...it is unknown. This slow blues idea seems to be also derived from maybe Stevie Ray Vaughn-like lumbering along or Maybe Zeppelin's "Tea for One'. The theme of the idea is that of the Shark, a tortured soul, and who goes to his church every sunday, unable to talk to the sweet girl of his dreams that he often sees there; "Every Sunday comes,... - Every Sunday Goes ,..I remain empty souled...." etc,... "Nails slowly Sink ,..to their Destiny" - The Shark 2010 Comments @ Rock City Boston; "Going to St. Lawrence Martyr Church in Redondo and seeing all these hot chicks there was pure terror torture,...Sometimes, I would go confident and I could talk to the girls with some power ,...but there was indeed something that made me hold back and being 20 in like 1985,...I wasn't quite sure what it was or if infact I was really even consciously aware of it or otherwise,...I was a good looking guy - I knew that,....I remember there were friends of mine who would say things like this; 'its because of yer family dude,...the way they treat you - it shakes your confidence,....You had better do something about your brother Doug man,..because that kind of stuff can affect - or ruin - your entire life',...I remember there was this kid named Seth ,..and I got a stearn warning lecture from him to which I just laughed - And he also implied that me being so short wasn't exactly gonna be helpful with the Ladies either to which I just shook my head - I didn't know this shit in 1985 ! ,....Another guy named Tom who was the Lead singer of this band called Meatwagon - who I was sometimes the drummer for - he read me a similar riot act,....they both independently suggested that I "stand up" to the Mighty D.H. and ofcourse I was always retorting to people with this laugh that 'THAT' was physically impossible 'and' there was no way ,....the DH was like this real big tough dude,..I wouldn't really say he was tall,..but he was real crazy, he knew martial arts, and he could kick anybody's ass - including mine,...So I wasn't quite sure what to do,....I remember that even my parents didn't quite know what to do with this crazy guy,...I saw my mom yell at him a few times to leave me alone over the years,...My mother Jo Ann probobly tried to tackle the issue alot more than my dad,....I always felt that my dad sided with my brothers against me,.....this created a very dangerous and chaotic situation,....and by no means was it 'JUST' My brother Doug - My brothers Jeff and Bert were no picnic to be around - infact at times,...they COULD BE EVEN 'WORSE' THAN THE DH - if one can believe THAT ... Another thing that the Mighty DH Would succeed at doing was to "turn people against" Little Clark the Shark in the Local Community; "Everybody in the South bay "knew" that I had alot of talent at music,...they saw my gigs,...they all heard my tapes,....but they all made damn sure to keep any positive talk about a Shark on the down-low when-ever around 251 or any of my brothers - particularly the DH..... OR RISK suffering his wrath - I sometimes seriously dream back ,..and I realise that My brother really 'was' the kind of guy who could take somebody's neck and break it with his bare hands ,..or crush their windpipe - he was skilled like a Chuck Norris but he was as mean and ruthless as maybe the toughest gang-member you might come across in like Compton ,... thus it was very tough for me to sell myself around the immediate South bay area so I began to ride my bike or drive my car to far away cities like El Segundo, San Pedro, or Manhattan beach - to get my Greenhouse Effect music to the people,....but I soon discovered that virtually 'EVERYBODY' around had been poisoned by 251 against me,..it was very tough,...and ALL of the thought and emotion involved in this ,..the rejection,...the making fun of me by people ,...it all pours out in the music and "Angel Of Hell" is really a pure tortured song by a purely suffering and lonely little man,....'THATS' what really makes this song beautiful,..and very much something special....." In 1988, Hagins watched his church Dream girl go get married - at age 18 no less !!; "Seeing 'that' happen was a devestating thing - and it still bothers me to this very day,....but I had no knowledge that life could get much worse soon in the future,....I saw my sister Die in 1990,...and the whole thing,..with her body being flown to Redondo from the Island Nation of Bali,..the funeral,..it was all so surreal,...then I saw Nirvana hit the big time in '91 - easily in my little mind the worst weird thing my brain has ever had to absorb,....and their band looked so and sounded damn similar in ideas to my band - and with all the same A & R People and Lawyers floating around ...man,...those were weird times,....I had all that HUGE MEDIA SHIT With Bam Magazine going on ,..it was very stressful,...A guy died at one of my concerts at Wilson park,...it was one thing after the next,.."Nails were slowly sinking to their destony- ..eventually in 1992,...I had to get out of the business of music,...." - -------------------------- Some Lyrics ; Every Sunday Comes - Every Sunday Goes - I'll remain empty souled - Nails slowly sink to their destiny - CHORUS; Like An Angel of...- Like an Angel of ,...Like an Angel of Hell - I keep standin'...and I keep wavin' - Why can't I ever do a thing - Seems my tongues caught up in me - I'm tired of Playin' their chickenshit game - ooh (Moderate Springsteen) etc,...- God, I'm not what I think,..I'm not what You think,...I'm really totally serious ,...I know a thing or two 'bout Love (Moderate Zeppelin / Bowie)
