The Loose Lips “Get Loose…” EP

The LOOSE LIPS, from Long Island, NY are not the same band that released “Talkin’ Trash” in 1999 (LOOSE LIPS) on TKO Records, but they sure share some dirty, trashy rock’n’oll influences. “Heels” opens this 5 song EP in a NEW YORK DOLLS way, before a very British rock “Beautfiful Flower.” You can also hear…

Dead End “Suicide Notes”

French punk rock band DEAD END has been around for more than 20 years! Despite all those years and numerous line-up changes, Wattie (vocals/guitar) always managed to keep DEAD END alive and kicking. On this new album, you can obviously hear Wattie’s punk rock’n’roll roots in songs like “Autophobia”, “The Cheater”, “Loser”, or “Shout”, and…

Neon Animal “Bring Back Rock’n’Roll From The Dead”

Sadly, the London rock’n’roll scene has been deadly quiet these last years, and only past images of England’s capital remain exciting when its name comes to mind… Nervertheless, it would be sad to live in nostalgia, and that’s what NEON ANIMAL seem to have understood. Fronted by BUBBLEGUM SCREW lead singer Mark Thorn, the band…

Grand Royale “Breaking News”

Swedish rockers GRANDE ROYALE are back with a third album produced by Nicke Andersson (The HELLACOPTERS, IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC, ENTOMBED…), which only appears as logical since songs like “Brake Light”‘, or “Breaking News” sound quite similar to IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC and late HELLACOPTERS. GRANDE ROYALE shares a passion for 70s rock (especially early KISS), and…

The Sweet Things – Dirty New York Groove

The SWEET THINGS have just released a fantastic 7” on Spaghetty Town Records. If you miss hearing songs in the vein of IZZY STRADLIN, old STONES, or JOHNNY THUNDERS, then this is the right band for you! Your biography said the band got formed after some drinks, and no one could really remember meeting up,…

The Erotics “United We Can’t Stand”

A new 8 song album by Albany (NY)’s sleaziest rock’n’roll band, The EROTICS. “Steroid and Cocaine” opens on a heavy rock note that will make you want to go for a furious headbanging session, before “Ain’t Talkin’ To You” takes you right into the US sleaze rock territory, where The EROTICS always excel. “Big Beautiful…

16 Ton Rockers “Shake Riot & Roll/Other Side Of Midnight” (Single)

Swedish rioters 16 TON ROCKERS are back with only two songs, one (“Shake Riot & Roll”) was released before on “Kung-Fu Kicks and Recycled Licks”, and was re-recorded a bit faster, which underlines the CLASH direct line of descent, although you’ll hear a very Johnny Rotten kind of end! “Other Side Of Midnight” is influenced…

Kris Rodgers “Losing The Frequency”

The name of KRIS RODGERS might not sound familiar to you, but he’s been touring and recording with bands like The CONNECTION, SCOTT SORRY, BULLET PROOF LOVERS, KURT BAKER, etc., and I’m sure you already saw these names before if you’re reading this. In 2011, KRIS RODGERS started a piano-oriented trio called The DIRTY GEMS,…

The Dirty Truckers “Tiger Stripes” EP

You can’t judge a book by its cover, and sometimes you can’t judge a band by its name! I was expecting some Southern rock here, and well, I’m not the biggest fan of that style. I was very wrong, ’cause these guys actually sound power pop, in the vein of The REPLACEMENTS (this EP was…
