This review is from: Hollywood Brats (Audio CD)
Pre punk boys play with gibsons, lipstick, tight pants and tranplant a New York tude to the UK and rock to the sleeze of the Dolls, Iggy and Bolan.
Light years away from Brickie rock of Mud and Sweet, the Brats streamlind the sleeze into surrogate punk of the Boys. They were consigned to playing second on the bill with the Lurkers and Vibrators when they should have been serenading the world with Johnny Thunders, the Pistols and the Ig.
This is punk rock party music without the masses banging the tables over, they can strut and preen to the bended chords of thrust and grind. It has a little Rolling Stones but far preferable to the Beatles covers of the Boys, it was in effect a more dangerous form of rock.
They perform then he kissed me from a female perspective, playing with the genders. They serenade the teenage daygream of life beyond school and launch the serenade to Iggy's "Sick of You" with "Sick on You", a track for divorcees going through a bad patch. It is an album of hidden gems and for those who want to launch a glam party, it plays along between the Dolls, the Ig and the Stones.
