SINN Jailbait |
(Perris Records) (2004)
"Sinn" is the brainchild of Tommy Krash, an 80's Glam Rock enthusiast. Tommy
shared his appreciation for Motley Crue, Faster Pussycat and Poison with
Mick Spacy (Guitars/Backing Vocals) and Matthew Scott (Drums, Guitar and
Backing Vocals) and together they formed Sinn.
The band created a self-produced demo called "Sleeze Demo #1" which received a positive
reaction from the Glam Rock circles. The band recently decided to change
their name to Dead Star Factory but before that they released "Jailbait"
through Perris Records.
You can understand the band's intention from the very first notes of the opening track "Girl" - need to name it? Hard and
Sleazy Rock! "Stepsister" is a typical Hard Rock song with a catchy riff and
impressive solo. Motley Crue are listed as the band's main influence and
"Look What the Cat Dragged In" is nothing but the living proof of that.
"Freak" sounds like most of the classic 80's hit songs and it seems as if
this was the bands intention in the first place.
Things will slow down a bit with "Find A Way" the only song close enough to a ballad. "Science Girl" is
the band's only attempt to add Punk attitude to their songs but I really
believe that it didn't work out as well as they intended.
Things will improve significantly with "Too Late", a song with a catchy refrain and
impressive double guitar work, my personal favourite. I was equally
impressed by "Outlaw", a song full of energy which reminded me of the time
when artists with coloured hair and plenty of make-up dominated the world's
biggest arena's. The last four tracks of the album "Shame", "She Wants
Love", "16 Sexy Sweet" and "Almost 16" continues the same way and will
satisfy every Glam Rocker.
"Jailbait" was created so as to entertain fans of Glam Rock music. If you
want your bands to sound hard and sleazy, "Jailbait" is the album you're
