Heavenly Rock N Roll,
This review is from: Red Back Fever (12 Tracks) Aust Excl (Audio CD)
Ive had this album for about 20 years all be it wearing a different sleeve. [red hard back book containing some interesting Victorian and early Edwardian accounts of incidents with Red Back Spiders]The Angels are a great Aussie Rock Band that have been plying their trade since the mid seventies. They supported AC/DC back in OZ,and there are similarities to DC, straight ahead riff tastic Rock N Roll but being contempories they have also managed to cultivate their own sound and like DC some of their earlier albums were chopped and spliced for the foreign market. This album was originally released in 91 and features funnily enough a cover of Once Bitten Twice Shy which they do a great job with and Humble Pies Natural Born Woman as they call it here [Boogie or Bugie]. The intro to High And Dry reminds me a little bit of that other Once Bitten coverers Great Whites Old Rose Motel which came out a year after this album, and vocallist Doc Neeson reminds me a bit of that other massively overlooked Aussie talent Rob Tognoni.
If you don't know this band then check em out they deserve to be better known as does Rob Tognoni.
