Customer Review

on 3 December 2002
Last year (2001) it was Hermes House Band with their take on "Country Roads". Now, 12 months later, Rikki & Daz burst onto the scene with another homage to the Country-Pop era of the 1970s. But unlike the aforementioned Hermes House Band, this isn't a straight cover version of "Rhinestone Cowboy" - it's more like a novelty country dance/rap (praising anything and everything 'Western') with Glen Campbell supplying the specially-recorded samples of one of his biggest hits. If you haven't heard the song before - and it never received much airplay especially from the extremely fickle (BBC) Radio One - then Rikki & Daz are similar in style to 'Bus Stop' ('Kung Fu Fighting' amongst others) and 'N-Trance' (when they were going through their novelty period).
Although a follow-up single and album is already in the works, it wouldn't surprise me if Rikki & Daz join Hermes House Band in becoming yet another one hit wonder (novelty records seem only popular around Christmas). If this is the case, then Rikki & Daz will be remembered for this better-than-average and fun song.
