ELECTRIK DYNAMITE
Hair Denim Sex Metal
New Justice Records, 2011

 

 

By Shane Pinnegar

 

With one tongue firmly in cheek, Melbourne’s ELECTRIK DYNAMITE have released their debut album, a slab which is unabashedly retro, full of hair metal solos, keytar runs, and leather studded melodies.

 

The inner cover picture of this very motley crew sporting sleeveless denim jackets festooned with band patches, bandanas hanging from skintight denim and leather pants, sums it up really – and the tunes on offer follow suit, always staying on the right side of pisstake.

 

There’s riffing and solos galore, the melodies are anthemic, full on and take no prisoners – especially on ‘Love Tonight’, ‘Midnight Rider’, ‘Hotter Than Hell’ and the instant classic title track.

 

With this album getting good reviews across the board and a fast-growing reputation for some wild live shows, 2012 might just be Electrik Dynamite’s year.
