Label: Cargo Records Releasedate: 26-06-2020
Neon Animal is the old-fashioned but fresh-blooded glam rock band from Motherland of this genre – UK. Make No Mistake is the second full-length release with nine tracks packed in style.
The pretty thing about rock’n’roll is that it’s always underground. The history looped; there is no difference between forty years ago and now. The main attributes of rock are almost illegal. What about rock’n’roll this time?The first idea of describing this stuff would be to compare it with New York Dolls visually then musically. Not because of personality crisis indicated. The material is raw and glam enough for 1970s and far away from the contemporary time.
Eager to revive rock’n’roll, Neon Animal uses the r-word as much as possible. Three tracks have it on titles, others – on lyrics. The drive of forthcoming glam and punk is included in several noteworthy tunes. The opener Rock’n’roll War is a catchy manifesto that provides the “true rock’n’rolla” spirit. The playful I Can Tell You Love Me made the filthy part (mind of album’s cover). Rock’n’roll Suicide is full of regrets and drama (if only) and mastered in a high level of classic rock. Bringing acoustic guitars to Hello L.A. is like touching of never-ending sun to misty London.
Instead of conclusion I’d quote Neon Animal itself: “If it’s so cool why am I so bored?”.
