Shark Island was one of the most popular club bands in Los Angeles during the 80's metal explosion. They dubbed themselves the "the longest running successful rock show in L.A.", but they were never able to break wide open.

The band released an album of demos independently before being signed to Epic records. Shortly after, they had two songs included on the Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure soundtrack.

In 1990 the band went from a five-piece down to four, when Black and Sercombe recruited a new band of Chris Heilmann (bass) and Greg Ellis (drums).

The band were ready to set the world on fire with their first major label album, Law Of The Order.

It contained killer singles such as "Paris Calling" and "Bad For Each Other", but went completely unnoticed by the record buying public.

In 1991 Black and Sercombe joined the one-off super group Contraband before heading back to Shark Island.

New songs were recorded in 1992, but never released, and the band just faded away.
