Frontiers / Now & Then FRCD 086
Produced by: Jason Hook
Released: Sept. 27 / Website
Relatives: Warrant, Bulletboys, Motley Crue
GENRE: Hard Rock
Bulletboys guitarist Simon Hook takes off in his own side project - Monkeyhead. Also in the line up is Simon Davis on vocals, Paul Bartel on Bass and Steve O on drums.|
Even though this is a brand new studio album, these guys are all about old school good time, fun LA sleaze rock n roll. So to are the Bulletboys, but these guys have a sound quite unique from that.
There are touches of the guys in Monkeyhead's sound.
There is also a little Motley Crue, Warrant etc....you know - the whole LA crowd sound!
Simon Davis is a solid vocalist - one which I will look forward to hearing more from.
Most of the albums tracks are uptempo, good fun hard rockers that are definitely not to be taken seriously.
Adriana is a great example of the album - a hyped up stadium rock anthem which was previewed on the Union 4 sampler a short while ago.
Only You makes a pretty cool rock ballad - the only one of the album.
