Leather Boys “Back In The Streets”

From what I remember, this Spanish band sounded a bit like PRETTY BOY FLOYD on their 2012 Ep. For some reason, they don’t really sound like this anymore, although 80s hard rock seems to remain their main influence.
You’ll also find some bluesy 70s influenced hard rock (“The Best”, “Sweet Revelation”, “Lord Of The Whores”), some sleazy rock’n’roll (“Sexagenery Sex”, “Hard Sex Girl”, “Riding, Fighting and Drinking”), and even some melodic heavy rock in a DOKKEN way (“Cries In The Night.”)
There’s nothing shockingly bad on this album, but it definitely lacks strong songs, although “Rock’n’Roll Gets Me High” actually stands out. The song titles might sound funny, but these guys probably just want to have a good time… All the time./Laurent C.

Leather Boys “Real Leather”

Looking at the band name and the album title, it’s not a big surprise to hear a bit of PRETTY BOY FLOYD’s “Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz” in the intro. Luckily, these Spanish guys are not a pale copy of Steve Summers’ band, but get their influences from the whole 80s sleaze rock scene. You’ll hear a bit of ROXX GANG in “Long Road” or BANG TANGO in “Thirsty of Blood” and this should be enough to arouse your interest. They also get heavier sometimes (“Halo of Hell”) and almost ride in the early JUDAS PRIEST territory.
The main problem on this album are the simplistic lyrics, I guess song titles like “Rock and Roll Blowjob”, “Searching For a bad Girl” or “Valley of Broken Dicks” can work in the comedy rock genre a la STEEL PANTHER but I’m not sure if LEATHER BOYS wrote them in such a spirit. So if you can look past the lyrics, this is worth checking!/Laurent C.http://www.myspace.com/theleatherboys
