Gatecrashers - Rock n' Roll Suicide
Gatecrashers are a sleaze / Glam / Rock / Punk band from Norway. They count the likes of Mötley Crüe, Hanoi Rocks, Motörhead, Ramones, New York Dolls, L.A. Guns, Dogs D'Amour, W.A.S.P., Twisted Sister, amoungst their influences and play a kin of high energy glam sleaze punk. The album is produced by the band themselves, which probably explains why its a little fuzzy sounding at times, maybe the guys should invest in hiring a good producers because some of the songs on here sound pretty decent. Again there's nothing here that you haven't heard a million times before, although admittedly songs like 'Get The Fuck Out', 'Out Of Here Alive' and 'Riot Kids' are really fun.
If you like your music a little lo tech full of energy and well fun then you could do a lot worse.
Unfortunately there are so many bands playing this kind of music and many of them doing it so much better, sorry.
