Sassy Kraimspri : Cock Fight II

Cock Fight 2Sassy Kraimspri have emerged from the gloom of the Norwegian forests (probably, could be an apartment in Stavanger) and are back in your face with the second installment of their Cock Fight trilogy which sees them heading in a totally new musical direction from their raucous garage punk roots…

Not really, I made that bit up.

If you think Scandinavia is all about Black Metal, corpse paint and silly names (and A-Ha) then Sassy Kraimspri may come as something of a surprise to your ears, channeling a 70s punk ethos and an attitude of not really giving a fuck what anyone thinks. If that sounds a bit garage-punk then it is, and at the same time it isn’t. Sassy Kraimspri are a band who take their time getting things exactly right, and of course having the legendary Russ Russell producing it was never going to sound shit.

Cock Fight II sees the band in their usual full blown Punk’N’Roll mode, grungey guitars, driving rhythms and, of course, the perfect sexy, sleazy, down’n’dirty vocals. Lead single Like A Drug is already making waves (check out the video below), second track Riot makes you want to jump around and break stuff and they even slip in some punked up, sludged out Blues for E.P. closer Say What…

Building on the success of Part 1, Cock Fight II delivers the shot of no-frills adrenaline that is kinda missing from the rock’n’roll landscape these days, it’s not complicated, it’s not clever and it’s definitely not commercial… What’s not to love.

Sassy Kraimspri will be touring the E.P. all over the place, so if you get a chance make sure you go check ’em out.

Sounds like Summer 2014 has its soundtrack.
