ROMERO: Turn It On!: LP

Jul 20, 2022

I guess this band is another “next big thing” out of Australia. Total ’70s glam worship which is all the rage these days, mining the tubthumping goodness of Slade with strong female vocals not unlike our own Debbie Harry or Joan Jett. Think Sheer Mag for an updated version. Recording is fierce by the legend Mikey Young and it all works just fine. Feels to me a bit disingenuous, latching onto whatever’s hip these days. Maybe I’m looking for something more real, not another band playing Coachella. –Tim Brooks (Feel It)
