Gypsy Roller “S/T”

Opening song “Rock’n’Roll Stroller” sets the mood right from the start: 70s glam rock à la Gary Glitter! Lead vocalist/Lyricist Gil Soliz teamed up with Allen Davis who co-wrote, produced and engineered this second album. Bowie‘s shadow also wanders around these songs, especially in “Goodbye To Sorrows.” The atmosphere sometimes gets close to the best…

Lipstick “Lipstick II”

Following the 2015 debut album, “Lipstick II” takes us to another colourful space travel starting with “On The Eve of The Attack”, which sounds like a quite surprising mix of BOWIE and MEAT LOAF! “Fight Back”, “Cha La Head Cha La”, or “Girl Dressed as a Sailor Moon” have a more 80s L.A. glam metal…

The Barbarellatones “Mummified!”

Still exploring the strangest sides of sci-fi and B-movie culture, Robbie Quine and friends are getting mummified on this new album! Opening song “Goth Hippy” sets a dark psychedelic mood right from the start, just as the title of the song suggests. From Rocky Horror BOWIE-esque touches (“Teenage Creepazoid”, “Donut Shop”, “Mummified”) to CRAMPS meet…

The Röxy Suicide – “Don’t bore us, get to the chorus!”

We wanted to know more about Dave Mansfield’s new band The RÖXY SUICIDE, a flamboyant band mixing glam, new wave and early punk! Dave, we know you from The MANSFIELDS. How and when did The RÖXY SUICIDE start? The RÖXY SUICIDE started in 2013 in the form that it is now. We went through a…

Prima Donna “Living In Sin” 7″

If bands were rewarded for the work they actually do, then PRIMA DONNA would be everywhere on TV and radio, and they would be bigger than ARCTIC MONKEYS! Of course, these four Californian guys have already been quite successful, opening for ADAM ANT or GREEN DAY, but they do so much more, always touring, playing…

Smash Fashion “Big Cat Love”

Two years ago, I really enjoyed “Blame It On Brandy”, the debut 7″ of L.A. dandy rockers SMASH FASHION (the band of ex-SMACK Repo and ex-ROCK CITY ANGELS Lloyd Stuart Casson ; ex-QUIREBOYS Nigel Mogg was also in the band for a while), so I was quite curious to hear this full album. Opener “Wicked…

The Barbarellatones “The Sound Of Love”

Watch out! The BARBARELLATONES are back with 17 songs full of glitter, cryptic guitar riffs and cinematographic references (opening song “The Sound Of Love” tells us from the start “I’ll be James Bond and you’ll be Brigitte Bardot”!) The second track is a spaced-out version of BOWIE’s “Rebel Rebel”, probably one of the best covers…
