Undoubtedly the most outlandish thing to come out of Barcelona since Gaudi, Dover could be forgiven for thinking they are on to something big. My sense of optimism, however, was crushed by the promise of "New York 70s Punk", which is exactly what Die For Rock & Roll attempts, but the result is not the sort of thing you Ramones followers are likely to be rushing out to buy.
With an opening riff sounding like something from CBBC, singer Cristina Illanos attempts what I can only guess is a bash at a gravelly vocal style, which realistically sounds like Gwen Stefani with a cold (Ashlee Simpson in other words). She reaches for notes simply out of her range, and generally helps to make these three minutes as uncomfortable as possible for the listener.
Te chorus of; "I was ready to die for rock and roll" is shouted with mock angst, complete with ultimate cheese-inducing riff and no sight of a catchy melody. The acoustic version sounds useful, but as far as Spanish rock goes - wake me up when Santana returns.
