SLÖMBER – Dirty Drunks & One-Night Stands

2009

 

 

When picking up a CD made by band members with names like Slömber’s (Billy McBarbie, Randy Roxxx, Vinnie Trashcan, Eddie D’Lizard and Coolcat Casey), you can be pretty sure it’ll either be total shit or fantastic – and praise be to the Gods of Rock, this album is firmly – priapically - in the latter category.

 

Fuelled with punk energy, hair metal smarts, and sleaze experience, “Dirty Drunks & One-Night Stands” grabs you by the collar from the first bar, and repeatedly slaps you around with its filthy guitars until is has had its way defiling you, throwing you to the ground, and stomping off to find another willing victim.

 

There is absolutely not a single thing wrong with this album – it sounds raw and fresh, the songs are awesome, catchy (and hilarious in parts), the band are confident and know how to rock AND sound like they cant wait to get to the bar!

 

I just wish I’d heard this a month ago so I could have included it in my Best of 2009 Report! Standout tracks like ‘All Sexed Up’, ‘Livin’ In The Gutter’ and ‘XXX.Cum’ show these tattooed reprobate jailbirds have a fine future ahead of themselves, and I for one hope they come to a sleazy club near me soon!
