Nasty Idols was formed in 1987 by singer Andy Pierce and bassist Dick Qwarfort, who released the group's debut album Gigolos On Parole in 1990. The band was about to release its fourth album Heroes For Sale when the record label went bankrupt. This caused the band to split in 1995. However, due to the new wave of sleaze rock bands popping up in Sweden, Nasty Idols made its comeback in 2006. This led to the release of the new studio album Boys Town in 2009.
