Big, bad, thumping greasy Teddy Boy stompers with a streak of horror rock n roll thrown in for good measure.

If you like your rock n roll with heavy bass and rumbling guitar riffs this may find its way on to your playlists, it takes the 70' and 80's revival sound and mixes in some strong lyrics.

Songs about knife fights, murderers Sinister Street sit beside the likes of Texas Call You Home. It paints a picture of violence on the streets, Riots at Leister Square (Leicester Sqaure?) then switches to a cover of Gonna Type a Letter. It's an unusual mix.

Musically this 3 piece from Germany have a long history on the Teddy Boy rock n roll scene and play strong songs that are tight and well constructed with some great guitar work highlighted on the instrumentals.

The subject matter however may not be to everyone's taste so be warned if easily upset.
