Bullet Proof Lovers “S/T”

Spanish rock'n'rollers BULLET PROOF LOVERS started just two years ago, but they sound as if they've been playing together for more than 10 years: Tight punk rock with big melodic hard rock hooks ("She's Gonna Leave", "Master of My Destiny") and 80s powerpop touches ("It'll Be Alright", "Nothing I Can't Do"), you sure have to...

The band's music definitely fits into the Spanish rock'n'roll scene,... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →
