There's plenty to appreciate about Warrior Soul. Frontman Kory Clark, a Detroit native, learned his politicking-bard approach from the Stooges and repackaged it for the 1990's in glittering, metallic form. With an obvious nod to Jane's Addition, Warrior Soul released their debut Last Decade, Dead Century in 1990 and immediately started music critics (especially in England) buzzing. In retrospect that album would stand as their best, but with each release, the band got increasingly vocal -- and eventually downright nasty -- in the music press about their dissatisfaction with their record label. Eventually, the quartet released Chill Pill (1993), a shabby excuse of an album designed to get the band dropped. And it worked. Who knows...if Nirvana's reach hadn't been so profound, perhaps these anarchistic cyberpunks would have ended up as more than Jane's Addiction also-rans.
