GLAM SKANKS

A lot of people skip the opening act when going to a concert, especially if it's an unfamiliar band. Usually, I make every effort to see those bands because you never know what you might miss. Last night at the ADAM ANT gig, openers GLAM SKANKS hit the stage. I was so totally impressed, I bought their CD, and chatted up their lead singer Ali after the gig. I've listened to their debut release "Glitter City" 3 times now, and there isn't a duff track on it. Take a mix of vintage T-Rex Marc Bolan with a big slice of the Runaways (Joan Jett/Lita Ford), add a dash of punk Blondie with maybe a little Motley Crue and you have GLAM SKANKS. The difference from the latter band? 4 talented females! The musicianship was stellar, particularly bassist Millie, but the drummer was at times as solid as the late John Bonham. I kid you not. (Particularly on the track "Karma.") Not quite Zeppelin's "Kashmir" of course, but nearly as solid sounding. Guitarist Veronica was no slouch either. It's great to see new young bands coming up paying homage to the past, while making it entirely their own. My personal fave was actually a song called "F*ck Off" which starts off like a 50's do-wop number and stays completely upbeat while flipping you off at the same time. Sure, some of the sleaze lyrics on certain songs might "offend" some if you can't appreciate the tongue and cheek humor in it, but this is rock and roll people. It's funny without being campy if you have a sense of humor. Music needs to be fun again, and these chicks bring it! If you like any of the aforementioned bands I named, seriously, check 'em out! I felt compelled enough to write this, so that should tell ya something.
