Violent Soho - Violent Soho




Violent Soho – Violent Soho
Ecstatic Peace – 2010
Rock/Garage/Grunge/Punk/Stoner
Waardering: ****



The expected grunge revival refuses to commence; the great music boss sighed as he watched the stocks plummet like a little slinky. Unfortunately; the slinky toy can never climb up the stairs again; not even when finally there’s a faint glimmer of hope on the horizon. Hope in the form of four boys from Brisbane, Australia, who make a huge bundle of energetic garagerock with loads of grunge influences and call themselves Violent Soho. Or should I say; grungerock with some garagerock influences. When asked; the gentlemen declare they wish to be labeled as stonerpop. Even so; on their new album called Violent Soho the listener is mostly treated to songs that would have easily fitted in the repertoire of Nirvana. Rocksongs without pretension which boom straight on or fly off the handle and out of the curve. Even the one obligate sober and modest song is not forgotten. Add to this that the look is completely accurate and the voice resembles Cobain from time to time; and the world is ready for the great grunge revival. So refrain from jumping out the window o’ great music boss… There might just be one last ticket to buy and one last ride to take… And a very sexy camel indeed!
