OUT OF LUCK; WALKING DOWN 10TH STREET
Walking Down 10th Street
Love Is An Expensive Affair
Tonight At The Cocktail Bar
Are U An Angel Or The Devil?
Cold Morning In The Moutains
Never heard much by these guys before so this was a new one on me and by god, i enjoyed it...very very much!
Sounded like the sort of thing Rev Horton Heat was doing before he started believing his own hype and disappeared up his own arsehole to release xmas songs etc!
anyways...heres a track by track review of what i thought about it....
Starting with 'Bad Thoughts' which is a nice under-a-minute atsmopheric instromental reminding me of the late link wray, then blasting into 'Frustrated' which is so much like good era r.h.h its unreal. Good catchy song with good vocals and beat to it.
'Cruisin' is the next track. nice song and they sounded like they were enjoying singing this one but to me the chorus vocals are a bit messed up
(maybe thats just me tho)
some damn good playing in that song tho.
'Psychos Mind' sounds like a ricochets lost recording. damn good slappin on this track.
'Walking Down 10th Street' slowly the pace down a wee bit to more of a rockin' sound with some good guitar picking.
'Love Is An Expensive Affair' brings it back to a r.h.h. sound. I really liked this song. can imagine it being a damn good live track. The chorus and lyrics reminded me of 'blue demon' even!
'Trouble' ...fast paced number, not one of my favourites tho. kinda like a scrambled version of a skitzo song. bit mish mash to me.
'Rainy day' now this is a good song. catchy beat to this song and good playing.
'Tonight At The Cocktail Bar' once again the r.h.h. influence comes out in riffs and riffs. imagine the song that rhh did about the groupie following the tour bus and getting tattoo'd with billy idol...it sounds like that.
'Are You An Angel Or The Devil?' slows down for this song. good lyrics i must say!
'Cold Morning In The Mountains' oohhh this is a good song. great intro leading into this great instrumental. I really liked this. some fucking great playing on this track.
which then leads to 'Good Bye' ... and we end once again on a r.h.h sounding track. DAMN Good song, with good production (well to my untrained ears anyway or maybe its just these jbl speakers i dont know??)
I really enjoyed this cd. It so reminded me of r.h.h's better stuff.
I would happily buy this if it hadnt been sent to me for reviewing let me put it that way...and thats coming from me!
This is a band i will certainly be trying to check out live if i ever get the chance.
Buy this cd...you WONT be disappointed!
Thanks once again for sending this cd for review

Yeah its a great cd.....some great guitar and double bass playing on this disc although my only gripe is the punk shouty backing vocals on 1 or 2 of the tracks but that is me being really picky as overall its a cracker of a cd....Like Hotrod i would recomend this for those that aint got it......And yep for those going to Bedlam in march you will be lucky to catch em on the saturday....lets see if the fuckers can turn on the style live...certainly hope so.....

It's just got such a powerful "old school" feel to it imo ~ tho i don't go a bundle on that term .. i use it way too much .
I may sound biased coz we've booked em for march.... but i've only heard good reports of the live show's & altho i'm looking forward to ( hopefully ) catching a bit of all the bands !!.... i'm sure as hell gonna watch these guys !!.... if the live reports / c.d reviews are anything to go by ?... then they have a lot to live upto ! & i reckon they are gonna kick butt on the saturday ! CAN'T WAIT !
