NASTY IDOLS Boy's Town Metal Heaven (2009)

Nasty Idols

Originally formed in 1987, Sweden's Nasty Idols were amongst the first wave of Scandinavian sleaze and glam bands. Having then split up in 1995, the original line up reformed in 2006 and now release fifth album 'Boys Town'.

The band has a cool mix of influences including Motley Crue, Skid Row and old Guns N Roses - the songs are catchy, sleazy and 100% rock n roll. The album is a barrage of highlights and these include opening track 'Rock Out', title track 'Boys Town', 'Scar For Life' and '48 Hours'.

There is also the slower 'Nite Like This' and 'It Ain't Easy' - a late 80's MTV-style ballad. The Nasty Idols' rendition of The Lords of the New Church's 'Method To My Madness' drew praise from the late Stiv Bators' old girlfriend who told the band that he would have loved it.

From Andy Pierce's vocal to the guitar work of Peter Espinoza, or the driving rhythm section of Rikki Dahl and Dick Qwarfort, everything on this record sits nicely in place. All in all 'Boys Town' is 12 tracks of attitude laden sleaze rock that could teach many of the current younger bands of the genre a thing or two.
