The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster – Rise Of The Eagles (CD Review)

The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster sound like they really want to be The Damned (no bad thing in itself), but cannot quite get the energy levels up high enough. ‘Rise Of The Eagles’ is a hard and solid rock track that has deep vocals that are almost goth in their resonance. They combine all this with musical asides and psychobilly backing; they end up with a track that it is easy to imagine driving crowd’s wild and deafening the first twenty rows at any gig.

The single is backed with a song that is no less heavy with irony than with guitars ‘We Don’t Rock’ as well as a demo version of the previous single ‘I Could Be An Angle’. The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster have a new album out on the 25th October called ‘The Royal Society’.
