Smash Fashion “Rompus Pompous”

L.A. glittery rock'n'roll dandies SMASH FASHION set the goals high with their previous album "Big Cat Love." They are back with this new 11 song album in which the 60s and 70s influences you heard in their previous record are still obvious. Opening song "Can't Take You Anywhere" has a bit of CHEAP TRICK in... Continue Reading →

Jet Black Kiss “Power Of Three”

L.A.'s JET BLACK KISS is actually one man: Robert S. Liam (aka "Simon"), who is back with 12 industrial rock/metal songs."The Flame", or "Dogs Of War" sound a bit like a mix of KILLING JOKE and WHITE ZOMBIE with a big dose of metal thrown into it (lots of double bass drum!) The rock/pop influences... Continue Reading →

Rebel Hotel “The Way I Am/Overflow”

Two songs from L.A. based REBEL HOTEL, "The Way I Am" and "Overflow." Think modern hard rock with a punky edge, sleaze rock flirting with Californian punk rock, VELVET REVOLVER jamming with the DEAD KENNEDYS? Maybe not, but something close!... These guys like their heavy guitar riffs and high-energy drum beats, and you'll also find... Continue Reading →

Dr. Boogie “S/T” 3 song EP

(Review by Anguish Young) I don't know exactly what gutter these guys crawled out of, but they've apparently mixed with the same circle of next generation, punknroll diehards who play on bills with Don Bolles' Alice Cooper covers band, the Earwigs, and the cream of the L.A. underground's modernday vanguard---you know---Crazy Squeeze, Black Mambas, Telephone...

Living Dead Lights “Black Letters”

Nice to hear from L.A's LIVING DEAD LIGHTS 3 years after their promising 7 song CD. Mixing hardcore energy with a chorus reminding bands like PAPA ROACH on opener ""I'll Be Your Frankenstein" , the band still sounds modern without sounding flat and overproduced ( the album is produced by Fred Archambault, AVENGED SEVENFOLD...), and keeps...

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... Continue Reading →
