Aussie rockers Hell City Glamours have released a new song called “Trainwreck”. It is a world exclusive over at Sludge Factory.com. Click here to check it out!
Hell City Glamours are no strangers to readers of HRH as we have reviewed both of their E.P.s and full length debut late last year. But this quartet from Sydney, Australia grow on me more and more as I listen to their music. Made up of Oscar McBlack – Vocals & Guitar, Mo Mayhem – Guitar & Vocals, Robbie Potts – Drums, and Jonny – Bass & Vocals having been banging out Rolling Stones and Hanoi Rocks flavored pub rock mixed with some punk rock energy and attitude for the last seven years. They have shared the stages in Australia with the likes of Hardcore Superstar, Alice Cooper, Brides of Destruction, along with countless other acts.
After releasing a 7″ and two successful e.p.s HCG released their full length self titled debut last fall. From the opening tracks “One Night Only” and “Back To You” to such songs as “Ready To Fall” and “I’m Not Here” Catchy, radio ready but still in your face with just enough swagger and attitude the guys are out to prove they can rock with the best and they do just that. If you are growing tired of all the modern hard rock bands out today, Hell City Glamours may be just the band for you.
You can give them a listen at www.myspace.com/hellcityglamours or by visiting www.hellcityglamours.com. You can also purchase their album and both e.p.s from I-Tunes and Amazon along various other digital music stores. Hell City Glamours definitely worth the money spent for their music.
Aussie rockers Hell City Glamours have scheduled several club shows in March in the United States.
Check below for dates and locations:
The Hell City Glamours have returned in 2008 with their first full length CD. On this disc, H.C.G. have spread their wings and tapped into their influences of such great Australian acts, Rose Tattoo and The Angels.
While I enjoyed the earlier EP’s by H.C.G., this disc is far superior to anything the band has done yet.
“One Night Only” captured my attention immediately with its rocking bluesy riffs. This is pub rock at its finest.
Can you ever have enough cowbell? “Back To You” has it, and I wish it had more, but this is a fun tune. Their is guitar riff on this song that brings Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to mind.
“Josephine” is a bluesy punk rock tune with a cool Angels meets Midnight Oil type of vibe.
One of my personal favorites is lively rocker “Flying Away”. This is the kind of song that gets your foot tapping, and your cold beers emptied faster.
I am a sucker for a good guitar riff. The opening guitar licks on “Right My Wrongs” pulls me in every time.
Every time I listen to the song “I’m Not Here” I kept thinking to myself, “man this song reminds me of someone”. Finally, I determined it to be the band D-A-D from Denmark. That is pretty cool, as I like that band too.
Some other album highlights are “The Money”, the radio ready “Worst Kind of Man” and the catchy album closer ‘Thankyou”.
I am glad the Hell City Glamours finally put a full length album for the masses to consume. This is a solid release and ought to open up some new doors for these Sydney based rockers.
