From Behind: Game Over

Wow this one plunks us right back into the late 60's very early 70's when a whole new breed of slightly dirty, beer soaked British bar bands fuelled by the success of bands like the Jeff Beck Group, Free and The Small Faces launched their own bids for stardom. The next wave included bands like Humble Pie and Nazareth. These bands had much in common, gritty vocals, up front guitar boogie and lyrics and swagger you hoped your mom would never catch on to. Manny Charlton (x Nazareth) and Nicky Moore(x Samson/Mammoth) provide the pedigree and chops to recreate an era.

Both took time out from their current musical lives to participate in this fire cracker project. Manny has resided for many years in the Dallas area and has been heavily involved in production, including several solo projects, since his Naz days ended. Nicky has never stopped working in music and is currently touring his own blues band. Aided and abetted by some classic rocking Swedes including Andreas Grufstedt and Mikael Fassberg (who recently worked backing Paul Dianno's latest tour) Manny's guitar and production and Nicky's gut wrenching vocals percolate through this awesome brew. The boys are in fact a band though, with plans to tour the summer festival season. A triple guitar bill not to be missed!

Manny's production has recreated the sound of an era, bar boogie stompers like "Queen Bitch" "Catwalk" and "Play Dirty"…. Early era heavy rock rousers like "Family" white boy bluesy numbers like "Boneman" and a couple of rock ballads "Picture" and "Gone". The whole damn thing harkens back to an era when music was fun… I, for one, miss a lot about those days. And if you do as well, this album will sate that particular musical appetite for sure. A great first band effort indeed, hope there is more to come!
