STARS OF THE SILVERCREEN – DROP DEAD ALIBI – 2004 – DEMO
2. Mindless Wandering
3. Electric Movement
4. Drop Dead Alibi
5. Charming Boy
Listenig to this 5-piece demo I immediately thought about the movie “Velvet Goldime”, and I came to think this would be the perfect soundtrack for “Velvet Goldime 2”! This Swedish young band succeeded in creating some glitter-rock tracks without sounding up-to date or simple copies of well known legends such as Hanoi Rocks or Mott The Hoople! Not easy, isn’t it?
Stars Of The Silverscreen’s sound dates somewhere between the Seventies and the Eighties, and sometimes they give a quick look at modern heroes, like L.A. Guns. DAD and Dogs D’amour. The outstanding work of singer Lucky Velvet – perfect in the role of “The Rockstar”!- enriches these amusing songs, mostly up-tempo, whose choruses will easily get in the minds of each listener; there are good guitar solos (especially in Electric Movement”) and a good rhythm section, but drums and bass have, unfortunately, low volumes and this certainly damages the recording’s quality.
They also appeared (under the name of “The Cosmic Twins”) in a Ramones Tribute released by Shockrockrecords, which will hopefully release their debut album; time will tell, but I think this band will go far. I keep on waiting for their first full length album…and for their official web-site!
