Camden Underworld 9 May 2006

Red Star Rebels have the ability to be what The Darkness should have been. Whereas The Darkness tend to come over as a bit tongue in cheek these guys have the songs and the talent to carry it off properly. Their set was well received and vocalist Blacky Rebel is very good at working the crowd. Songs such as 'The Fast Die Young and Pretty', 'Hold', 'In It For The Kicks' and 'Too Young To Care' are a good introduction to a band that should do very well.

Gilby Clarke is well known to most as Izzy Stradlin's replacement in Guns N Roses, before that though he was in bands Candy and Kills For Thrills, and it was good to see KFTs 'Motorcycle Cowboy' in the set, alongside GnR favourites like 'Knockin' On Heavens Door', 'It's So Easy' and 'Sweet Child O Mine' The Stones 'It's Only Rock n Roll' and 'Dead Flowers' The Clashs' 'Jail Guitar Doors' and a number of Clarkes own tracks including 'Cure Me or Kill Me' and the 'Tijuana Jail'.

For one of the encore he even introduced the sell out crowd to his 12 year old daughter Frankie who played guitar and sang with the band on Green Days 'American Idiot' (the band being completed by ex- LA Guns/Col. Parker bassist Muddy Dutton and drummer Chad Stewart of Motochrist). All in all a great gig by one of Rock n Roll's genuine nice guys.
