Flickertail Hurry Up And Wait CD
You could say this is a concept record: through screaming Les
Pauls and thunderous drums, it tells the story of four dashing
young men with no money having a bloody great time
watching Braveheart, sinking tins and getting thoroughly
excited about EPL highlights. It’s also a rough collection of love
stories, but that’s much less fun to talk about.
In the studio, the boys landed Steve Balbi and Tony Wall, the
latter of which has worked with just about everyone from
Olivia Newton-John to KISS. Naturally, as lifelong devotees of
honest, in-your- face guitar rock, they were beyond thrilled to
record the next “Xanadu”.
Everything the band love about music is on this record.
There’s guitar lines like Thin Lizzy, AC/DC boogie, bits of Slade
stomp, rich vocal harmonies, Beatlesy melodies, and make-a-
cinderblock-cry sincerity. it’s raucous love songs, played loud
and honest with no autotune or sampling in earshot.
