Smash Fashion 2014 release, BIG CAT LOVE
"A Gentlemen’s guide to sophisticated savagery", released in 2006 after the band had been playing the LA club circuit for around 2 years, was a very promising debut.
"Don't pet the sweaty things" the sophomore album released in 2010 was the confirmation of the chock full talent of Smash fashion.I particularly liked the renditions of "Does your Mother Know" and "Benny and the Jets" which both turned out to be quite mean rockers when played by SMASH FASHION.
2014 saw the release of "Big Cat Love", the 3rd full length release by these Los Angeles dandy rockers. And this is really the coming of age for SMASH FASHION: Great vocals, brilliant guitar playing and a rock steady rhythm section.
The songwriting of Roger Deering now delivers instant Powerpop, Glitter and boogie classics like "Wicked ways", "Blame it on the Brandy", "Stay of my la la"or "Aim for the heart"
And if you hear traces of Cheap Trick, Mott the Hoople or the Faces, Smash Fashion are about inspiration instead of imitation. “Were not reinventing the wheel, were just putting new tires on it” states Roger. I could not have said it better myself!
Joining Roger Deering in SMASH FASHION 2014 are Lloyd Stuart Casson on Guitar, Tony Kinman on Bass and Repo on Drums.
