Hello again. As promised, here's a second post to make up for the one I missed yesterday.
Now since the last one I did was all about covers inspired by the pinups that used to decorate USAAF aircraft back in the day - many of which were directly inspired by the art of Gil Elvgen and contemporaries - I thought it might be nice to continue the theme. Some of these are originals, some inspired by the masters.
Joker - S/T (USA 1990)
Psychopunch - Kamikaze Love Reducer (Sweden 2011)
Show-Ya - Glamorous Show (Japan 2014)
I may projecting, obviously.
This was a covers album paying tribute to Japanese Rock legends.
Here they take on 80s metalheads Earthshaker and nail it.
Can I take a minute to fanboy over Miki Igarashi's guitar playing? Niiice.
Rough Cutt ... Wants You (USA 1986)
Hmmm. Leggy young woman being offered a ride by hairy blokes.
It's like the reverse of a ZZ Top video isn't it?
Or maybe they just want her to take their order.
"5 double burger meals and 3 side orders of cocaine please"
Rough Cutt never quite managed to hit the heights of contemporaries Motley Crue and Quiet Riot but they did provide the latter band with a replacement singer when motormouth Kevin Dubrow was given the Spanish Archer.
ZO2 - Ain't It Beautiful (USA 2007)
Red Line Chemistry - Chemical High & A Hand Grenade (USA 2006)
I know bartenders like to stick stuff in cocktails but that's just stupid.
Drunk people + things that go bang is just not a good combination.
Ooh. I have the name for this cocktail. "The Darwin Award"
Red Line chemistry are a modern hard rock band.
I hope you don't mind me using a vid from a later album.
Wizzö - Real Hot Stuff (France 2014)
And to finish, how about a pinup that looks a bit familiar?
Alison - Alison (Argentina 2007)
The gal that featured on the Johnny Kreis nose-art cover gets an outing on her own.
And why not?
Alison are a Punk band but the art fits the theme so let's give them a plug.
Plus they aren't bad at all.
That's All Folks.
