If you’re into bands like Motörhead, Gluecifer and The Hellacopters and Ted Nugent maybe you should take notice here?

Dustsucker from Germany was formed back in 1993 and “Jack Knife Rendezvous” is their brand new and 5th album. – The first time I threw this album in my CD-player I was a little disappointed… I wasn’t exactly in the mood for this kind of music. The music style I’m talking about is “Pedal to the metal, dirty, speedy heavy rock n roll”… or “High Energy Speed Rock’n’Roll”. However the next day I was in the right mood for some dirty, speedy rock ‘n’ roll, and I was hooked right away.

This brand new album from Dustsucker is not about polished hairspray melodies… no, no… this is all about loudly mangy guitars, feedbacks and party. – Just crank up the volume and open up a strong beer and ROCK!

Already the first track is setting the standard… fast and dirty… a perfect mix of Motörhead, Ted Nugent and Punk Rock. After the 4 first tracks I was heading for the refrigerator for another cold beer and I was ready to Rock again. Damn it’s hard to play air-guitar and drink beer at the same time :)

Singer Max Count Farmer has just the right voice for this kind of dirty Rock and Roll… rough and aggressive. Could you wish for more?

The music continues to Rock my brain… the gritty, dirty and distorted guitars are packed with catchy riffs while the rhythm section of the drums pounding away and bass lines providing luscious licks, keeps this thing grooving. Not groundbreaking in any way but still a damn fine and very loud piece of pure Rock music.

This is just about having fun. So put on your blue jeans and your denim jacket, run to the nearest record store and get this album. Hurry home…throw it in your CD-player, crank the volume up and open up a beer (or 5) and let your ass be kicked by these Germans.
