This record opens with a song called “Anti-Social”, but it’s not a TRUST song! It sounds more like old TURBONEGRO, but well, these guys will probably admit it since they’ve never hidden their love for Norway’s Denim Demons. Punk rock’n’roll guitars and choruses that are easy to sing along is what you’ll find on “L.O.V.E”, with songs like “Deadbeat Generation”, “Girls Girls Boys Boys”, or “Collateral Damage”. The band can get more groovy on “Naked or Denim” and “Boy Toys Of Glory”, or straight punk rock on “Polymeric Lover”.
Fans of BACKYARD BABIES will probably love “B-Stock Babies” since it almost sounds like an outtake of “Making Enemies Is Good”, but although influences are sometimes quite obvious, BITCH QUEENS also know how to sound more personal, especially on the last song, “Techno is Dead.” “L.O.V.E.” is probably the band’s best release to date, so don’t be afraid of the beard on the cover, this is no stoner or hipster folk! (“L.O.V.E.” will be out on May 5th.) Laurent C.
