Thunderbird Motel - Rockit Til the Wheels Fall Off

Seattle based rock band Thunderbird Motel offer up their new self released album Rockit Til The Wheels Come Off. Influenced by industry heavyweights like The Who, Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd, this short eight track album has a sound that is bluesy hard rock with a very clear towards the hey day of 70's rock.

Rockit Til The Wheels Come Off shows a lot of promise for a band that just haven't quite arrived yet. Songs like 'Red Dress', with its Keith Richards lick are absolutely brilliant, whilst 'Hellraiser' is still a little too chaotic, and I swear the backing vocal have been taken straight from The Who's 'Who Are You'!

'Black Eye' and 'Borrowed Time' again show a lot of promise for a young band, and maybe if the band had held off just a little longer before opting to record the album they could have matured to the levels of 'Red Dress'.

Worth checking out, but I'm really looking forward to the next album!
