Easter 1992. For five days Intoxica and legendary producer Tony Cohen bunkered down at Atlantis Recording, South Melbourne and emerged with ‘Suburban Roulette’. Intoxica’s second album is a sinuous, pulsating rock and roll tour de force and contains what became signature tunes: ‘Petrol Head’, ‘Bloody Mary’ and of course the single ‘I Wanna Wear Your Skin’.

As well as the thirteen studio tracks, four absolutely throbbing live tracks were added as the CD bonus. These were recorded at The Prince Of Wales Hotel ‘by Borgy on his Walkman’. Unusual, yes but the low tech compression gives songs like ‘The Fly’ some special magic and captures the essence of Intoxica live in St Kilda’s Ol’ home of rock.

Sadly Tony Cohen and Borgy are no longer with us. The old Atlantis is a freeway on ramp and ‘The Prince’ sure ain’t the same. Intoxica, of course, still rock like there is no tomorrow and will play ‘Suburban Roulette’ in its entirety.
