Hard Rock Funk Stew

(4 out of 5 stars)
"These cats never hit it big because they were just too damn hip for the masses to grasp. It's an odd mix of GNR & The Chili Peppers, sort of a hard rock funk stew. Jizzy Pearl does sound a lot like Axl but has a beatnik vibe that makes him unique. Title cut hits hard with droning melodic guitars and Jizzy's Alice Cooper like snarl. Spit and Yucca Man lock in to relentless grooves. This band was obviously tight as hell when they made this record. Don't know much about Skid, but the dude could write, and not just good riffs- check out the lyrics on Social Sidewinder. Fave is Miss America- perfect blend of slick 80's rock with skeptical lyrics and a hint of grunge. For what it's worth, all of this bands' records are solid. Also, check out Jizzy Pearl's website- www.jizzypearl.com. This guy is funny as hell and very intelligent. His latest solo record Just A Boy(available only on his website) is five stars in my humble opinion."
