There’s a real spiky, abrasive and essential sleazy charm to this double single from Queensland’s Snakebite Whisky, a band formed by vocalist Jay R formerly of UK Sleaze Rockers ‘JackViper’ who imploded on the verge of releasing their debut album.


If you lived through the Sunset Strip era of the eighties or have affinity with that music, especially the harder edged sound of bands like original line-up Guns and Roses add to that the punk attitude of Motorhead and crank up the volume and you get the idea.


Both tracks here show promise enough to have you salivating about a bigger release promised later this year. Of the two ‘Cruel and Indiscreet’ burns slower but brighter and seems fuelled by pure attitude and sustained by primal guitar; whilst ‘Lost Saints’ rides a more upbeat groove that makes you wonder what would happen if The Dead Boys merged with Rose Tattoo, it’s a sleazy taster of things to come and we can’t wait…
