LIMOZINE – FULL SERVICE
Released 21st May 2012 (Beat Atlas Records)
Words: John Newspeaker for Noise Addiction
Limozine – What a cool name? Even the spelling hints at dirty Rock’n’Roll. Think Black Keys meets the Cramps, via the Subways, Stooges, MC5, and Primal Scream. This their 3RD and latest album Full Service serves us up, eleven gritty guitar garage tracks that simply reek of the excesses in maximum R’n’R. Limozine squeeze in sleazy chords and nasty Cramp style twangs into every one of their fuel driven tracks… (Woah there, easy on the motor references!) The whole album evokes Sex, Drugs, Beer and Girls, as well as Surfin’ in the dark! And the wonderful Jennifer X… YES, they are everything your ma and pa sure wouldn’t like.
So just for balance, I have a small problem with British frontmen singing in an American drawl and that could well be only a problem for me, as I have the same trouble with a certain Mr B.Gillespie and he seems to have done pretty well for himself, but I would suggest that Limozine don’t really give a shit, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Stand out tracks are the twangingingly brilliant Jennifer X, and the catchy as crabs Deep Fried Love, but my favourite today (although that may change tomorrow) is Sniffin’ Glue, with the genius chorus of “I’ve been sniffin’ glue with your girlfriend… Ha Ha”
Go buy it, buy the band a beer, ignore the American grammar, love them for what they are, get in the Limo and ride like a screaming quiffed banshee into hell.
