The Breakdowns “Rock ‘N’ Roller Skates”

TheBreakdowns2I don’t know much aboutThe BREAKDOWNS, but their Facebook page says they started in 2005, in Nottingham, UK! 11 songs full of cool influences such as CHEAP TRICK, TOM PETTY, or The NEW YORK DOLLS.
Whether their power pop gets close to glam rock’n’roll (“Rock City Limits”) or catchy in a CHEAP TRICK way (“Off The Record”), it never gets wrong! Even when they get into the teenage pop punk territory (“Mainline Waiting”), these guys bring the best out of the style, reminding me of the great AMERICAN HEARTBREAK!
You’ll even find a bit of MINK DEVILLE in “It Ain’t Over”, some STONES guitars in “Sweet Pamela Jane”, and a 60s flavoured ballad (“It’s Only Love.”) The RAMONES influence can mainly be found in the last song “Stick ‘Em Up Buddy!”, and this one will definitely stick to your mind!
You know you want it, so get your slice of heartbreak rock’n’roll!/Laurent C.
