ROXX GANG‘Hot Damn’ Perris Records PER11323 (2003)
Not being familiar with the band I was expecting some glam/sleaze rock,
how wrong could I be - it’s prime time rock ‘n’ roll Stray Cats and Georgia
Satellites style! You’ve got the honky tonk of ‘You’d Have To Tie Me Up To
Tie Me Down’, fast guitar on ‘Run With The Devil’ and ‘Bumble Bee’, with its
Duane Eddy twang guitar sound. Crackin’ slide guitar on ‘Clarksdale’, a real
foot stomper and the album closes in fine style with ‘Two Too Much’,
complete with more honky tonk piano.
Just goes to prove don’t judge a band by its name! Very enjoyable and if
you’re into the Georgia Satellites grab yourself a copy of this album. These
songs would go down a treat in a live setting.
