The Spades - Learnin' The Hard Way

Apparently when Motorhead was touring Holland 20 or so years ago, they got a bunch of black women knocked up, and their children formed this band. These guys lay down some of the best fast rock and roll this side of anywhere, with a tiny bit of punk thrown in to make it sound even more like something I'd get drunk and punch my best friend in the face to, or maybe get drunk and wander around my town with a fire extinguisher shooting it at everyone. It *might* even be so good that I would get drunk and crash my car right into the front door of an AA building. Not that I have ever done these things, but it sure would be funny if I did. ;)

Anyways, to put it simply, these guys play rock and roll like it should be played - dirty, drunk, and looking for trouble. Their anthems include "Random Violence", "Beat me" , and "Gonna Get Some".

I must say they also are quite skilled as well as catchy, they have some pretty slick riffing, and their drummer is obviously a madman, and the vocals (main and backing) make the band have personality. I must also say these guys look like the rowdiest bunch of hooligans ever, and I'd never want to fight any of them.

If you like Motorhead or Blood For Blood, get this right the hell now.
