Artist: Spit Like This
it comes to good time rock n roll then look not further than the UK’s
Spit Like This, a band who mix Gothic/ Punk/ Metal in their own very
unique way. As part of their plan to conquer the world of rock n roll
the band brought out their ‘We Wont Hurt You (But We Wont Go Away) –
Ultimate Edition’ on an unsuspecting world.
album is pure adrenalin groove filled rock with more swagger than you
can shake as stick at it Rock Horror with added sleaze if that was
the opener and single ‘Sex, Drugs & Heavy Metal’ there is no
doubting the vibe this band are bringing to the table, good time sleaze
the will leave you with a naughty smile on your face.
raunchy infested opus keeps going with ‘Heart Thief’ a bit of tongue
and cheek sleaze here, with Lord Zion delivering that riotous almost
Riff Raff style to the vocal delivery on this one. The same slung down
vibe is carried on with ‘Trust Your Instincts’ with a touch of pop
punk thrown in for good measure.
get a little heavier with ‘Young, Dumb & Full Of Fun’ this one
has an air of Anti-Product about it, the dark bass vibes with more
bounce than a airship on springs. ‘Dead Girl Walking’ touches on a
New York Dolls vibe with Zion giving us is David Johansen vocal so far.
tempo is picked up once more with ‘Down On You’ and the electro
infused ‘Pussywhipped’ before the heady side of things comes to the
fold with ‘Hunt You Down’, but it’s the heavier vibe of ‘Act of
God’, then its one of my favourite tracks of the album the high octane
guitar rich ‘Coming After You’ this is the B52’s meets every
Sunset Strip glam band since 1985.
band slip into groove mode with ‘Top Of The World’ and hit the
sleaze swing road with ‘Sleaze Sells… But Who’s Buying’, then
turn up the heat with ‘Trick Or Mistreat’ a real sleaze show tune if
there ever was one, speaking of show tunes the album rounds off with the
bonus track ‘Sweet Transvestite’ from the superb Richard
O’Brian’s The Rocky Horror Show so the link between Riff Raff and
Lord Zion isn’t as much a mystery then.
is far beyond the norm but the band don’t claim to be normal in
anyway, if you like something different, something a little underground
this definitely for you, if you don’t mind music not being so serious
then check out Spit Like This.
