Dr. Boogie - Gotta Get Back To New York City

Dr. Boogie is a band from Los Angeles, CA consisting of Chris P- Lead Vox/Guitar; Dustin James- Guitar/Vox; Jeff Turpin- Bass/Vox; Luis Herrera- Drums.

Their debut full length record "Gotta Get Back To New York City" is now available on Vinyl and CD on Dead Beat Records.

A couple of weeks ago, while making some research for a write-up about The Modern Kicks, I stumbled on a flyer featuring Noddy Holder and Dave Hill going down a stairway in the heydays of Glam rock. The flyer was advertising a gig  in Oakland billing The Modern Kicks and Dr Boogie.

Being the Slade fan that I am, I was of course intrigued. I liked the name "Dr Boogie". I liked their logo. I liked the pictures of the band: a peroxided singer with a Gretsch, a bass player with a iron cross around is neck bringing back memories of Ron Ashton lying on the carpet on the inner sleeve of The Stooges' Fun House. So their look was great but what about their music? You know the sayin': can't judge a book by looking at its cover!

Well, no worries, brothers, the music perfectly matches the looks: rock'n'roll down to the bone! Theses guys have the swagger of the New York Dolls, the groove of The Faces, the coolness of the Flamin' groovies and the flamboyance of the early70's Rolling Stones all rolled in one. Hooks a plenty, catchy choruses and mean guitars riff, theses guys have it all. And every song on this debut record is a killer.

An absolute must buy, get it here

Je viens d'acheter la totale en mp3 de ce groupe sur Amazon pour éviter plus de 20 euros de port des 2 CDs proposés.
Cela vaut le coup, même e, mp3, et c'est pas mal du tout. J'en prends plein les oreilles :-)
Merci de cette alerte et bonne suite
