Street Symphonies Records/Andromeda Dischi

Straight-up this release is close to a year old. Just in case you wanted to get it a little present or something. What to get it? Well, this Italian 4-piece seems to enjoy the finer things in life like sex, alcohol and rock n' roll (not necessarily in that order!) and they're all about having fun. That translates to a debut-album with 8 tracks of hard & heavy rock that's more punk then anything. As the band cuts a path across the highways and byways, dive bars and seedy clubs, it's acts like The New York Dolls, Hanoi Rocks and Lords Of The New Church that spring to mind. I'm willing to admit that the last one there (featuring the late great Stiv Bators) might just be popping in my head because of the fact that I had been listening to them previous to this review. Still, there is no denying that they same life blood found in bands like those three mentioned runs it's course straight to the hearts of modern acts like this bunch. Of course comparisons/influences have been made/attributed to the likes of more modern acts like The Hellacopters and Backyard Babies. It's there of course, but again these 4, lead by  vocalist/bassist Mikki, march along to the beat of their own drummer (which, in this case at least, is member Cioxxx) while the guitarists here, Frizz and Mark, rip shit up with squealing ax's going all kinds of crazy. It all makes for a bona fide rock and roll circus where the animals run the show!
