The Crazy Squeeze “S/T”

crazysqueezecoverLet’s talk about the concept of “supergroup.” While getting musicians who were successful in their former bands together often creates a lot of hope, we can only admit that the result of their united talents is sometimes quite disappointing.
So, I have to let you know about how disapointed I was when I listened to that album which I really tried to get into (I listened to it many times) and that will never find favour with me.
Ok, the album cover is quite original and the picture of the foursome in their nice looking clothes is rather good, but is it enough to satisfy any rock’n’roll fan? Well, it isn’t for me at least. You might think that you don’t need to hear my opinion and that I’m not the right person to talk about musicians that are loved by many people, so I still can question myself about it and admit I’m wrong if somebody can convince me.
Before ending this, I have a question I’m dying to ask: Am I really the only one who hated the Jerusalem Slim album that was released in 1992?
As I already mentionned above, good musicians getting together is not always quality guarantee, but sometimes the alchemy works and as an example, you’ll find the best guns from The Stitches, Teenage Frame, and The Richmond Sluts in The Crazy Squeeze gang.
Pure Rock N’ Roll, pure Glam, pure Punk, Glam Punk and a little pop touch, this is the secret to get successful (as well as a couple of covers and guests) for Johnny Witmer & friends when they decide to satisfy their listeners, and believe me, they’re not fakin’ it!
So, here I am with a must-have in my hands. The icing on the cake is the very original cover art, and the foursome photo in their good looking clothes is the capital gain of this album that I can’t stop listening to./Franckie.
