EVERY MOTHER'S NIGHTMARE Live Songs From Somewhere (Perris Records 2002)
Southern rockers with a kickin’ live album! They take southern rock and
mix it with a sleaze rock vibe. Nearest comparisons would be American Dog or
the Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies, with a heavy dose of Skynyrd. Highlights
include the heavy riffing ‘Hole’, which is previously unreleased, the
melodic ‘Deeper’ and the Southern boogie of ‘Long Hair’, with some great
guitar soloing. They also cover Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Saturday Night Special’
and Alice Cooper’s ‘I am Eighteen’ - both of which are sterling versions.
The only downside is that a few numbers sound similar after a few plays.
A solid live album and if you like Southern rock then you should try this

** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
