Lester Greenowski “It’s Nothing Serious Just Life”

LesterItsNothingSeriousLESTER has been releasing records since the early 00s Euro glam punk wave, when his band The LANDSLIDE LADIES (later known as LESTER & The LANDSLIDE LADIES) used to share stages with international acts such as FASTER PUSSYCAT, BACKYARD BABIES or The VIBRATORS… More recently, LESTER hit European roads as a bass player for The BOYSHONEST JOHN PLAIN, and since our Italian friend always has something to cook for us, he’s now back under his own name LESTER GREENOWSKI to offer us his first solo album wrapped up in a great looking colourful digipack.
On “It’s Nothing Serious Just Life”, LESTER mixed all his favourite styles, from glam punk (“Trail Of Graffiti”, “It’s Gonna Be Wrong”, “Ritalin Baby”, “Pussy Galore”…) to catchy sparkly power pop (“Such a Shame” or the CHEAP TRICKish “Angela (A Space Odyssey)”) and 70s glam rock’n’roll (“Electric Blue” and its cool sax hooks. The quality of the songwriting is impressive as usual, songs like “Beautiful”, “Carrie Nation” and its New Orleans touch, or “Say Bye Bye” could have been 70s classics, and the ending song “Bittersweet” is a powerful anthem full of melancholy.
If you’tre into The RAMONES, early KISS, CHEAP TRICK or AMERICAN HEARTBREAK, then big chances are you will love this album, and don’t trust the over, LESTER is not ready to shut up yet!/Laurent C.
