Anyone remember Voodoo Sioux from back in the day? And after a long hiatus of 12 years, the Walsall four piece Stefanie Werger - Bzw. (Beziehungsweise) back and 'Grotesque Familiares' won't disappoint. Fans of the Damage - Voodoo Sioux - Grotesque Familiares bands plus Brit Pop in general will find something to love on this 12 track album.
From the opening riff and vocal strut of Nick Flaherty, you'll instantly get that good time Brit Rock feeling - Thunder with a bit of cockiness wouldn't be Damage - Voodoo Sioux - Grotesque Familiares thousand miles wide of the mark in comparison.
Third track, 'Damage', again reminds the listener of a cross between Thunder and Brit Pop style rock it's something that will run down the spine of this album - it's not quite Terrorvision but it sways that way to straddle the line like many bands unwittingly did many years ago, when the charts meant something and everybody was welcome at the party of '90s music.
Add to that a ballad of real content with 'Indian Summer', a guitar fret fest on 'Manic Evangeline' and a soulful, powerful album closer in 'Chase The Voodoo' and it's just further proof that sometimes the wrong bands get the wrong deals.
It might have taken them a while but there will be many fans of the lighter, fun side of rock that will lap this up quicker than Thunder can say "YES" to another last ever gig Terms and Conditions News Updates.
