"Electric sounds"-Danko Jones

From the opener "Guess who's back" to the more hard rock boogie of "The girl is mine" , Danko Jones and his pirate crew are performing high temperature, high octane rock n roll. With their eternal oath in distortion DJ are the lost bastard sons of MOTORHEAD who was raised by George Thorogood on steady diet of punk and Australian Hard rock. ROSE TATTOO is the best resemblance , if Angry Anderson was less brutal or Jones decided to growl a bit more. The album is full of potential hits for an imaginary rock n roll radio, songs like "Gets high", "Shes my baby", "Shake your city" and 'Stiff competition" could be hits instantly. But is the simplicity of riffs in "Electric sound" and the melodic bridge before chorus that shows that Jones has studied the master of well written hard rock songs, Phil Lynott. They got the street feeling and like new age WHO bring their bitterness and anxiety on the front, dressed in pulsating rhythm section and boiling guitars, razor sharp riffs and tight songs, where every note, every scream counts.



Canadian power trios are the best around, since MOTOREHAD no loner exist. Our bold and bald , Canadian , singer, guitarist, leader of his band extraordinaire returns in action and from with an album that sonically resembles to a strong kick in the nuts. No mercy as the guitar riffs dominate the atmosphere. AC/DC and Fast Eddie Clarke meets halfway soloing over some strong alternative riffs by FOO FIGHTERS.

In a different , more fair world, where younger artists take over the old ones, Danko Jones would be already a headliner name . In the world of Spotify and you tube , they are and will be an underdog who can bite you every minute with their solid, melodic, distorted, dirty rock n roll.
