Richard Duguay “Bad JuJu”

Just one look at the cover makes you think that L.A rock’n’roller RICHARD DUGUAY has his own universe, which is a positive thing to start on. Opening song “Death Defy” is a mix of 70s and 80s hard rock and is the perfect anthem to make the listener ready for the rest of the album. Then “The Rain” brings early ALICE COOPER and psychedelia to mind, and songs like “Psychotic Garden” or “Bad Ju Ju” also head to the same direction, while a song like “Dr. Silver” has a bit of a ZODIAC MINDWARP vibe. Things get a bit more experimental with “The Last Star”, but still with a good dose of rock’n’roll, and “Critical… Darling”, “Paradise Is Gone” or “Way Back Home” could be unreleased ALICE COOPER songs.
Listening to this album bring images of big shows or even musicals at time. This could give another dimension to these songs, but even without that, you should definitely check this album out! /Laurent C.
