History

Joshua was a Los Angeles-based white metal band lead by the fast axeman, Joshua Perahia. The group was formed in 1980 and 'Joshua' maintained a dual-role of singer/guitarist for a while. The young band independently issued The Hand Is Quicker Than The Eye MLP in 1983, which was licensed to Enigma records. From hereon began a consistent pattern of line-up changes for Joshua, which became the band’s trademark.

Double Trouble was issued in 1995 and was, in fact, the band’s first two albums.

Joshua became M-Pire in 1995 and eventually simply adopted the name of its main man as its monciker. The band performed at the Stryper Expo in 2001. Joshua also claims responsibility for leading singer Rob Rock to Jesus Christ our lord and saviour, etc.

Newly remastered CD reissues of three albums were issued in 2008 through www.joshuaperahia.com. The Hand Is Quicker Than The Eye (originally released on Enigma Records in 1983), Surrender (Originally released on Polydor in 1985 and featuring Jeff Fenholt on vocals), and Chapter One (originally released on Long Island Records in 1998) were all out. The 2001 Joshua Perahia (Joshua/MPire) release Something To Say was made available on CDBaby.com in 2009 after being out of print for over five years. Joshua Perahia and Jeff Fenholt were expected to enter the studio by late summer to begin recording a new album tentatively entitled Resurrection.
