JD & The FDC’s : Recognise

My first impression of this album when I pushed play on my CD player, was “wow this kicks some serious ass” and that was just the first track. Yes, this album goes for the jugular right from the off, and it’ll tear out your throat before you’ve even realised what the heck is going on.

This is a slab of good old fashioned rock n roll. It’s infectious, groovy, and all those other adjectives us reviewers use to get our point across…. Quite simply though, this is a VERY good album and I absolutely LOVE it. It’s full of that type of song that gets right under your skin and animates you like you’re being controlled by some unworldly force.

This is definitely one of those summery albums that you’d play with the roof down. The thing is.. after a very damp, dreary week at work I arrived home on Friday night and stuck this album on. From that moment I knew the weekend was definitely here, and the party was now under way. I can’t compare these guys to too many other artists, they certainly  have the same sort of attitude that The Wildhearts used to have. They’re very much a band out to have as much fun as they can, judging by the music and lyrics.

You could say that they venture into the pop/punk genre, but even that doesn’t quite sum it up. I’ll just go out on a limb and say that this is straight up, in your face, rock. There’s no other way to describe it.

Undeniably, what it is though is extremely good, it’s music to put a grin on your face from ear to ear. It did just that to me and honestly this is going to be played to death on my MP3 player for some time to come. It’s full of rock and roll attitude, and it’ll kick you in the nuts and pinch your beer off the bar.

Keep an eye out for these guys, I predict great things…..
