twentysevens Sex Politics And Religion
Red Music (2008)


The story goes that the band impressed Status Quo on a support slot in their homeland and then were invited to fulfil that role on the UK leg.

This is guitar rock that wears influences comfortably on sleeve, even the Quo who are recalled on Pictures Of Matchstick Men. There's a bluesy vibe throughout but fairly perfunctory. The band's name alludes to those rock icons like Hendrix and Joplin who died at the age of 27.

The opener 'Stand Up Let Go' is catchy enough with its reference to War's 'Low Rider' and there is the bluesy 'You Only Love Me Cos I Won The Gold Lotto'. Elsewhere 'Forever Waiting' is a persuasive argument for a single.

An Aussie version of Nine Below Zero? Perhaps. In places, a touch of their compatriots Crowded House, a bit of The Church. But essentially, the whole lacks originality.

No religion, no politics, and certainly no sex. What a tease.
