Lester Greenowski/The Empire Strikes Split 7″

LESTER GREENOWSKI just celebrated his 15 years on the road, spreading the glam punk word around Europe since the LANDSLIDE LADIES glittery days. It’s no surprise that the first song “Mantra (Another Ramones Rip Off)” is a RAMONES tribute since the gang of New York always had a big influence on LESTER‘s music. This song could have been on a KEVIN K album too. “Wasted Mary Ann” is a catchy glammy punk rock’n’roll tune with Steve Jones influenced guitars and great backing vocals.
I didn’t know The EMPIRE STRIKES before, but listening to the first notes of “Enter The Denim” is enough to make you think that these guys are from Scandivavia (Helsinki, Finland.) The late HELLACOPTERS influence is quite obvious, but they add a pretty interesting poppy touch to it, you’ll even hear a bit of CHEAP TRICK in “Ms Mrs. Andersson.”
Behind this fun cartoon cover, you’ll get some of the best contemporary Euro rock’n’roll around! This 7″ is out on Area Pirata Records../Laurent C.
