SMART PATROL - Overage underachievers LP
Here comes the debut-album by thee best power-pop band that ever saw the light of day here in Krautsville !!!
The band may be pretty new, but the names do ring a bell:
Mueller (ex MERRICKS), Christoph Strohmeyer (ROYAL FLARES), Carsten
Knappe (ex CHOCOLATE FACTORY) and Harry Vogel (ex HEARTBEATS) have been
active for a long time in ardently loved bands of the international
sixties-scene, and their much sought-after records have achieved
legendary status over the years.
But Smart Patrol are far from being just another sixties-influenced band!
four guys from Munich joined forces to fuse classic songwriting of the
sixties with the sound, power and attitude characteristic of the music
revolution of 1976-1978 and this resulted in 12 one-of-a kind powerpop
gems wrapped in a tailor-made suit of hooks and melodies on their new LP
But don't mistake them to be retro: the
four guys all started out in punk-influenced bands, so in the end
they've only gone back to their roots, or as they sing in their tribute
to Munich's Atomic Cafe: "It's time to get back to basics"
you get here is an album packed with perfect shots of power poppin' 70's
mod-punk that would be all over the radio in an ideal world.
dig the CHORDS, the INCREDIBLE KIDDA BAND, the POINTED STICKS, the
PLIMSOULS, the YUM YUMS and KURT BAKER, you certainly can't do without
