Well-played hard 80’s-edged Rock in my humble opinion never goes out of style when it’s executed this well…


If you want to get things off to a good start then ‘On My Side’ has all the swagger of early Gunners and a touch of AC/DC to get ‘Kickin’ Valentina’ out of the gates firing on all cylinders. And the best thing you find when you spin this disc is it’s in very decent company making this a ‘must check out’ release.


And it just gets better: ‘Wrong Way’ has a great dirty groove that keeps giving; ‘Get Ready’ has a real Kix meets Buckcherry flavour and really rips it up; elsewhere ‘Fist N Twist’ has to be one of the best rocking road songs so far this year and rips up the road at a breakneck pace, riding a Rose Tattoo flavoured riff; ‘Super Atomic Poster Boy’ is just great fun, retro party rock that gives you a smile a mile wide and that’s what it’s all about.


Elsewhere ‘Alone’ isn’t the ballad the title might suggest but rather a slow paced but still adequately rocking tale of regret. ‘Anita’ shrieks of Sunset Sleaze as it rides the slow crunch of guitar; and closers the rather lurid ‘Some Kinda Sex’ and ‘Dirty Girl’ raise a finger to the PC brigade.


Great stuff and very consistent, a must for fans of the grittier sleazier side of 80’s rock.
