Young Heart Attack are not easy to define. Cynics could dismiss their rough bluesy sound as shoddy pub rock, but they have much more panache than that. Its certainly old school inspired. To quote a rock journalist cliché "they are AC/DC meets Motorhead with a Janis Joplin wannabe lead singer." But it works and they sound pretty darn good.
Tommy Shots is the Texan band's third single from their unreleased debut album Mouthful of Love. Paradoxically, they have a familiar sound that's refreshing and distinctive all the same. Similar to early Alice Cooper its stripped down garage rock which flows effortlessly.
The recently very collaborative godfather of metal, Lemmy pops along to offer backing vocals for a cover of AC/DC's Get It Hot and the second b-side Sunset Sinner is fast, furious and very catchy. It won't be long until they are mentioned in the same breath as the other old school influenced rockers The Darkness - but I suspect taken much more seriously.
