Lester Greenowski “Kover All Over”

Another KISS tribute album? Well this one was made by a true fan for true fans. Lester even took his name from the first name of the band WICKED LESTER… He was also involved in the “”Keep On Shoutin’ – Not Your Average KISS Tribute”, a fundraising project in memory of Rock’n’Roll Photographer Alex Ruffini. Here, Lester has teamed up with a bunch of friends and guests to record these songs during the pandemic and it turned out to be a great idea. The choice of the songs is particularly interesting since they often are some fans’ favourites although they aren’t singles. “Radioactive” or “Got To Choose” (featuring Faz La Rocca of FAZ WALTZ) will make every KISS fan sing along from the first note to the last one! You’ll also hear a really cool punked-up version of “New York Groove” (featuring Irene from VIBORAS) as well as an explosive NEW YORK DOLL-ed version of “Kissin’ Time”. “Cold Gin” also gets a punk rock treatment and “Strutter” almost sounds like a BLONDIE song here, Debbie Harry should have been a guest on this one! “Parasite” is faster than the original version too but still manages to keep the heaviness and loudness of the song while “It’s My Life” alsmost sounds powerpop and “Getaway” sounds like a song from The HELLACOPTERS. One of the most surprising versions is “I Love It Loud”, turning this heavy monster into a punk rock anthem. Well, a good song is a good song! The cherry on top is the Italian version of “Radioactive” (“Radioattiva”) featuring Paul Del Bello (DOBERMANN.) This records will make you want to rock and roll all night and party every day, obviously! /Laurent C.
