Limozine - El Presidente
Richard Wink 22/10/2009
First of all I would like to say that whomever was responsible for writing the press release for this single should be shot at point blank range, it makes the band sound like dicks. Honestly, even if your band sucks you need a press release that actually attempts to make your band sound like the next big thing. Don't make me hate the band before I even play the CD.
Ok, I'm going to take a breath, we are here for the music, let's sit back and judge the band on their tunes. 'El Presidente' is a horrid dosage of cheap, lager bloated pub rock; it sounds like Jet covering the Sex Pistols. Garage rock was big in what 2001? Punk hasn't been relevant for nearly thirty years and pub rock belongs in The Dog and Duck, away from innocent ears. This isn't even cool in a retro sense.
Dean from Limozine should know, since he is a fan that Hunter S. Thompson once said “The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.”
The negative side is music like this, B-side 'Junkie Girlfriend' makes me hate this band more than HST hated Richard Nixon. I honestly don't understand why some bands put their balls on the line and attempt to run the critical gauntlet. The members of this band should stop taking the drugs, clean out their ears with cotton buds and think about what they are doing before they even consider releasing any more music.
