GENERATION SWINE

Self titled EP

 

 

If KISS had made “Too Fast For Love” in the hair metal days whilst hopped up on a cocktail of bad tequila and good drugs, it might have sounded like Adelaide’s GENERATION SWINE.

 

This debut EP is full of all the piss and vinegar that a thousand shitty pub gigs and four hours in a studio can offer – a quartet of songs that throw you a sucker punch from the speakers, KO’ing the listener into submission.

 

It’s an unabashed celebration of everything good that’s missing from the radio in these dark, bland pop days. Melody, riffs, vocals and guitar solos which soar and screech, attitude to burn and songs which leave you wanting to party and fuck and rock n’ roll all night long!

 

Every song here would have been all over the radio in 1987 – their eponymous tune is a gritty slice of feral life, ‘Show Me Tonight’ has an irresistible chorus which just won’t give up, ‘Fatal Attraction’ is an anti-heroin tune which is darker and slightly slower in a Skid Row-flavoured way, and ‘One Step Ahead’, whilst more generic than the rest, still serves up an anthemic chorus tailor made for pumping fists and banging heads to.

 

The sooner these guys can get into a studio to record a full length, full quality album, the better!

 

Only available at the band’s gigs at the moment, hit them up via Myspace to get their act into gear and sell you a copy!!
