Lowfive – Emergency Disaster Kit

I remember when rock music was all about coming from LA and knowing how cool you were. Back in those days an overwhelming confidence in yourself was respected and meant people let it go when you wore white leather and red codpieces. That was years ago though, now people what emotion and thoughtfulness. Or do they? As Guns N’ Roses and Van Halen greatest hits albums fly off the shelves it could well be time for some real rock ‘n’ roll and Lowfive could be the ones to bring it.

Citing influences from Jeff Buckley, The Rolling Stones and Cheap Trick (whose Southern Girls they cover on this album), Lowfive are from LA they walk around being cool and not caring about too much – as the chorus of Too Much Of Nothing says, in true rockstar style, “Right now I gotta get myself off.”

Emergency Disaster Kit succeeds where other have stumbled and later fallen by not going too over the top (you’re not bombarded with guitar solos at every turn) and not taking itself as seriously as it might. It’s fun and that’s all it wants to be.
