Torpedo Girl

Ace Frehley, Vini Poncia

The only one of the three Ace recordings on "Unmasked" that Vini Poncia received a co-writing credit on. Vini received co-writes on eight of the album's 11 tracks. Ace played bass on the recording, which stands as KISS' only overtly "comic" recording to date. Gene has commented: "Ace sometimes played bass, too. He played bass on '2,000 Man' and 'Torpedo Girl.' And I didn't always play bass. I played guitar on 'Almost Human' and a few other songs. The idea here is that, even though it says Gene Simmons, bass; Paul Stanley, guitar; Ace Frehley, guitar and Peter Criss, drums, everybody does whatever has to be done because it's still called KISS. We don't play the game of giving credit to every tambourine player and background vocalist. That's nonsense" (Jeff Kitts - Guitar World Magazine, 1997).
