Backyard Babies are the future of Rock. As more and more people get fed up with boring grunge wannabes, any band with some energy seems amazing. The 'Babies have energy in abundance, backed up by some killer songs, and a live show the envy of much bigger bands. They may have an image in the press, but they have substance to back it up.
Total 13 is their breakthrough album, and every self-respecting rock fan should get a copy - they take the best bits of the NY Dolls, The Stooges, Ramones and more, blend them together and out jump classics such as 'UFO Romeo', 'Ghetto You', and 'Highlights'.
