Barb Wire Dolls
Genre: Hard Rock
Reviewer: Eric Compton
You are telling me this band is from Greece!?! I’m not buying it. This sounds like 70s era New York punk, maybe a hybrid of Ramones, Deborah Harry and that countless inspiration called NOSTALGIA. The Greeks have gained a ton of notoriety. Check this – signed to Motorhead Music, an off shoot of Warner /UDR. The act is represented by Lemmy’s manager Todd Singerman, booked by Motorhead’s camp. Hell they sold out the Roxy after an invite from KROQ’s Rodney Bingenheimer. This debut album was recorded at Sonic Ranch with Jay Baumgardner (Ugly Kid Joe, Sevendust). The stars have aligned, the red carpet has been vacuumed. What’s next? Well the band have to deliver the goods live and often. Based on this record the group are a valid new rock band that surely has enough energy and spunk to make the circuit fun and interesting. Highly recommended for punk fans, pure rock aficionados and fans of the finer things in life.
