are no strangers to the Swedish sleaze rock scene, releasing four albums between
1988 and 1995. They re-united in 2006, and went touring before entering the
studio to record this their fifth studio album, 'Boys Town'.
Good looks, gutsy sing-along glam and sleaze anthems is the name of the game,
influenced by the 70's glam wave; New York Dolls, Sweet, Alice Cooper and Kiss,
and first class sleaze and glam rock is very rare and far between these days, so
it was with some reservation and a great deal of scepticism that I put ' Boys
And from first to last it is very clear that these guys know their trade and
stay clearly within the boundaries set up so long ago. They stay true to the
sounds and the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, attitude, and the result is a solid
and sleazy piece of rock 'n' roll.
'Boys Town' is icky, sticky and raw in all the right places, and the album has
enough weight to put them up there with their fellow countrymen Hardcore
Superstar and Crashdiet and regain some lost grounds.
