I first heard from these guys on Wacken 2005, right before the release of this album. They played the Jim Beam Stage all weekend, with one rainy show on the Party Stage also.
Seen as I saw their show like three times that weekend, it suffices to say they rocked big time.
I went home with their single CD containing "Piece Of Me" and "Boyfriend". After that, I kinda lost track of DoomFoxx and didn't buy the full length until recently. Boy, what a shame that was...
DoomFoxx fills three quarters of an hour with alfa-male rock in the typical Australian style we know from AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Airbourne and so many more.
They do have a sleazier edge to them than their fellow Aussies, and a more adolescent theme throughout their lyrics and music. Have a listen at the story told in "Boyfriend" and you'll catch my drift...
Sleazing away on the single songs as well as "Look Ma No Hands" and a few more, there's also a more bluesy edge to this band. "My Beautiful Friends" is a raunchy ballad-like song that oozes street life, while "Schoolboy Adonis" sounds old school to say the least.
Many genres pass by on this album, which takes away part of the "immature" vibe you pick up on at first listen. The second half of the disc is filled with so many different styles and tempos, all neatly kept in line by the grinding vocals of Stuart McKie.
The only constant on this album, along with almost anything Australia produced, is the pumping rhythm section. Steady, stubborn and grooving all the way through, this is probably the only blend of contemporary rock n' roll that gets your hips shaking instantly.
If you're into fast-paced, no-brainer rock songs that remind you of better days in music, check this out and you'll not be disappointed.
Their new album is coming up by the way, keep an eye out for it...
