The Montecristos - Born To Rock 'n' Roll

The Montecristos is a fabulous London based rock'n'roll outfit including  Neal X - Guitar and Vocals, Emma Goss - Double Bass, Gemma B - Trumpet, Sophie Freeman - Saxophone, Hugh Wilkinson - Drums

In an age when overnight internet sensations are an everyday occurrence, it’s hard to find a band that’s grown organically, the old fashioned way, by word of mouth and touring, while winning kids over one show at a time. 

The band positively explodes on the opening instrumental track, “Atlantic Surf”. It’s a loud, urgent blast of guitars and horns clocking in at just over a minute and 51 seconds, setting the tone for the rest of the album. 

And the rest of the album is a fantastic rollercoaster ride through the finest rock'n'roll on this side of  Chris Spedding ("Born To Rock 'n' Roll", "Dirty") or Sylvain Sylvain.("Good lovin'")

The real treat on this record is a fabulous rendition of "Brand new Cadillac"  with plenty of horns and featuring Marc Almond (of all people) impersonating Vince Taylor like no one else before.

Go and purchase The Montecristos' debut full length album, released on EASY ACTION RECORDS you won't regret it. An absolute must buy!

While you're at it, make sure to check the "coming soon" section: EASY ACTION has some great stuff coming in the following weeks or months (FUZZTONES Box set, HYDROMATICS with bonus tracks, .....)
