Swiss band Sideburn are back with their 7th album and if you know anything about this bunch, then you’ll know exactly what to expect as it’s more of the same quality AC/DC, Rose Tattoo-driven boogie rock at its best.
A few line-up changes have done nothing but add to their own high standards and if you like the aforementioned bands, then this really is a no-brainer. Whilst seemingly remaining underground to most, this band keep getting better and better and they really are an undiscovered gem of simple, classic rock. Singer and mainman Roland Pierrehumbert is a treat to listen to and those bored of waiting for another ‘DC album should have no worries in just purchasing this blind.
The fact they’re not seemingly chasing that elusive big deal like bands such as Airbourne or JettBlack gives them more room to flex their muscles and throughout 14 tracks there is not one single duff track to be heard. The brilliant 'Bite The Bullet', 'Mr Clean', and the almost obvious 'Bad Boys, Bad Girls Rock 'n' Roll' are simple, great songs that should cement their growing reputation even more.
To get 7 albums in and still be relatively unknown when you’re this good is almost criminal, so do yourself a favour and check this band out.
Switzerland ain't a bad place to be...
