When I heard
the debut EP from this new sleaze act called CRAZY LIXX I was
immensely impressed with what I heard – A brand new band from the
same school as CRASHDIET, WIG WAM, TOWERS OF LONDON etc. – CRAZY
LIXX, on the other hand, had (and still has!) something that the
rest of this new breed of sleaze lacks, and that folks, is
I also saw
them perform at Sweden Rock Festival and, although performing on the
smallest possible stage, they managed to draw the attention of a
crowd counting some 500 sleaze-heads – Virtually blocking the path
to one of the bigger stages! -)
a couple of months and here I am absolutely intoxicated by the full
length debut from these Malmö-rockers! They’ve chosen to include
their 2 fan-pleasers, “Want It” and “Heroes Are Forever”, and if
that wasn’t enough to satisfy me, they’ve come up with an album full
of similarly catchy sleaze tunes – Completely on par with the
aforementioned crowd-favourites! In short = this is freaking
fantastic all the way! From up-tempo rockers to “I-miss-you-ballads”
they create a strange (but wonderful!) connection between your
consciousness and your primal instincts forcing you to strip down
and wreak havoc in the streets - no holds barred!
Laney-handled production gives the songs another dimension and
during the 11 songs, one is taken on an audio-journey down memory
lane. There are hints to sleaze/glam greats SKID ROW, DEF LEPPARD,
NASTY IDOLS etc. but never ending up sounding “rip-offd”.
It should be
clear to you by now that I adore this band - And you should too!
Don’t worry ‘bout their weak band name – It says nothing about the
music they create! This is THE band to take over the crown after the
soon-to-be demise of CRASHDIET!
are my new heroes, and HEROES ARE FOREVER!!! -)
