Sugar Lady “Night Prowlers”

After introducing themselves with a raw early NYC punk influenced 4 song EP two years ago, the Dutch rock’n’roll trio decided it would be good to add some more and release a 9 song album. Starting on a proto-punk note with “Welcome Back To The Real World” and “Time To Go”, the band brings out their JOHNNY THUNDERS influences in “One More Time” or in “Go Go” and gets close to GG ALLIN with “Night Prowlers.” DUFF MCKAGAN solo stuff also comes to mind when listening to “Friday” or “In The Hands Of Mary” and we can hear a tribute to MOTÖRHEAD with “Mötor Lady.” This is dirty and chaotic as it should be, something most ’77 punk fans will probably enjoy! /Laurent C.

Sugar Lady “S/T” EP

Hailing from The Netherlands, SUGAR LADY get most of their influences from NYC 77′ punk rock’n’roll, when rock’n’roll was dirty and dangerous. The HEARTBREAKERS/JOHNNY THUNDERS influence is quite obvious in “Welcome To The Real World”, but the vocals remind me a bit of NASHVILLE PUSSY, so it doesn’t sound like an imitation at all. The trio slows things down in “Friday” before ending with “Motör Lady”, an up tempo MOTÖRHEAD influenced song. SUGAR LADY still sound raw and young, but they have this good old LAMF spirit that is so rare nowadays. So, keep an eye on them, we will! /Laurent C
