It has been 50 years since Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Kiss launched their thunderock-doused debut album into the pop culture stratosphere. The eponymous album, released on February 18 1974, became a platform-stacked foot in the music industry’s door. What followed established Kiss as one of the most memorable hard-rock bands of the 1970s and ’80s, with a globally recognised legacy.

The early days

  • The pair then hatched a plan to form a far more aggressive and successful rock band.
  • Drummer Peter Criss and guitarist Ace Frehley were recruited, and the new-generation Fab Four renamed themselves Kiss.
  • By late November of 1973, the band had developed their bombastic live performance style, perfected their makeup and signed a deal with Casablanca Records.
  • Armed with reworked songs from Wicked Lester, Kiss entered New York’s Bell Sound Studios to record their debut.

The Kiss sound

  • The salesperson, responsible for the glitter glue, enthusiastically recounted seeing Kiss play VFL Park (now Waverley Park stadium) in 1980 and made me promise I’d listen to them.
  • With their reputation of on-stage pyrotechnics and gore, I’d expected something more akin to Black Sabbath’s Paranoid than the jangly riffs of Let Me Know or Love Theme From Kiss.
  • Despite calling the album exceptional, Fletcher described its sound as a cross between Deep Purple and the Doobie Brothers.
  • This commercial unviability loomed over Kiss until the release of Alive!

Success and beyond

  • bridged the gap between the audacious intensity of Kiss’s performances and the timidness of their studio recordings.
  • Their early tracks were repurposed to let listeners remotely experience the infamous Kiss live spectacle.
  • As Rock and Roll All Nite claimed #12 on the Billboard charts, the platform-stacked foot burst through the door to mainstream success.
  • Fifty years after Kiss first stepped into Bell Sound Studios, the band played their final sold-out show at Madison Square Garden on December 2 2023.
  • Promised to be their biggest and best shows ever, the farewell became a colossal celebration of the band’s legacy.
