LAST NIGHT RITES
Low down, dirty G’n’R loving Rock revivalists.
It comes as no surprise to learn that Texan rockers New Disasters formed from the ashes of a Guns ‘N’ Roses tribute act as that band’s influence is writ large all over this album. It comes as even less of a surprise to find them opening up for the likes of the Drowning Pool, LA Guns, Skid Row and Quiet Riot. The one thing they have got that sets them apart the legions of overproduced, poodle rock worshipping wannabes is a love of harder rockers like Rose Tattoo, The Stooges and the Dead Boys and some of that all important dirt has rubbed off them. So no points for originality but at least they do this thing with some balls.
