3 Speed – Once Bitten (US 7″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th October 2014


A. Front

“Once Bitten” is the title track of the 1985 horror/comedy film of the same name. “Once Bitten” was performed by Synth rock band 3 Speed. The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts, USA led by frontwoman Linder Chase.

The band was discovered after their manager sent a demo tape to a studio in Los Angeles, completely unbeknownst to the band members. An executive was listening to their demo tape on a radio on his desk when Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. walked by, heard Linda Chase singing, and said that he wanted the band on a plane the following weekend.

In addition to “Once Bitten,” another song by the band called “Stop Talking About Us” was used by MCA/Curb Records on the aforementioned soundtrack. This song was not written for the movie, but was actually a demo that the band had previously recorded. The version that appears on the soundtrack album is the demo.

3 Speed enjoyed considerable success after the release of the Once Bitten soundtrack; at one point they were even opening for Pat Benatar. MCA Records, however, never petitioned the band to record a full-length LP, commissioning them instead to write songs for more soundtracks, including those for Rad and Savage Streets.

Chase continues to write & perform music and work in recording studios.

This US only 7″ promo contains the same track on both sides.
