ROCK N’ ROLL STORMTROOPERS: On Fire: CD

This silly band from Germany wears their influences on their sleeves: Cock Sparrer, Slade, AC/DC, Ramones, Rose Tattoo. It’s an upbeat, fun record with catchy riffs and ridiculous lyrics. Sample line: “We are bulldozers on the loose / Roaring, steaming, pounding!” Despite the fact that the music utilizes every street punk guitar riff cliché in the book, the music frankly kicks serious ass. Plus all four guys are wearing Turbonegro-esque, Daisy Duke type shorts on the insert photo, in a background of pink lighning bolts. What could be better then a little furry man-leg action?
