This one now spans decades, ain’t it? Released in 2009, that is quite a distance from 1979 (and the glory 7″ of The Pack). On this one there is so little to say other than if such a record comes out every year then every year since 1976 was a great year.
Again, by all counts a great record with a monster track in „Bigger than Kiss“:
1977 – does that matter here? Naaaa – not.
published by a cool lable – ticked, Fat Wreck is a great home-brew type of lable (gone big)
found in a cool shop – not ticked, unfortunately i do not own the green vinyl version…
catching sound – tick, tick, tick or „1,2,3…4“
not too bad words – conscious words to explain why they are big. damn good.
Bous: recorded at a great place – yes, right there, at the Blasting Room (of Bill Stephenson fame)
There is not a lot history to state on Teenage Bottlerocket, but i can tell you the (actually twin) brothers Carlisle do rock, big time! Bring them on! Anyday, Anytime!
Here it is it in all glory:
Detroit couldn't rock itself out of a paper bag Gene Simmons looks kinda cool But Paul Stanley kinda looks like a jag Ace Frehley can play guitar But he ain't no fucking Kerry King So get your ass out of the way Here comes a rock revolution Listen up cause I'm about to sing The creatures of the night Can't hold a candle to this We'll be kickin' ass we'll be takin' names When we're bigger than Kiss I never thought cocaine Could be as good as this We'll live our lives in alcoholic bliss When we're bigger than Kiss Rock! Me and Charlie we have it loud Yeah you know we rock and roll all night Paul Stanley fell down on stage and broke a hip Let's hope he's not alright The ladies don't like old men Now my love gun is the one in demand And we're gonna go down in history As the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band The creatures of the night Can't hold a candle to this We'll be kickin' ass we'll be takin' names When we're bigger than Kiss Calling Dr. Love hey geta load of this Ray beat the piss out of Peter Criss Now we're bigger than Kiss (c) Teenage Bottlerocket
There is a little side note to this: Artist Ben Levin is worth a mention! As i do like my Bro Hernadez style comics i do like this too. Sure!
