Give it a Whirl
As a blue eyed 13 year old I blown away by Kings of the Wild Frontier.
From a time when creativity was at the fore.
I was sceptical about this re birth of my hero.
Firstly I bought tickets for his recent tour. My wife came along with me with a look of I would rather be shopping. Adam was on stage stage for almost two hours and my wife was jumping around like a teenager..enough said there.
The album is different to say the least. It's not over produced to the point of being totally sterile, a little rough around the edges but I can say hand on heart I love it.
There are influences from the early days which pop up from time to time.
Stand out tracks for me so far are Vince Taylor, Dirty Beast and the fabulous Cradle Your Hatred.
The other 14 tracks are growers.
I heard that some of the major labels were fighting each other to make this album but to his credit Adam has recorded it on his own label in his own way and probably the better for it.
Ant Music is back....
