Trounces the likes of Crazy Lixx, Wig Wam and Crashdiet’s recent output hands down.

With a name like St. Prostitute it’s no surprise that this young Danish quartet could have crawled out of the same gutter on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip as Guns N’ Roses, Faster Pussycat, L.A. Guns et al. Starting out life in 2007 as the L.A. Prostitutes – therefore nailing their influences to the wall from day one - the Korstholm brothers (Fussy on lead vocals and Morten on guitar), who were joined by bassist Kim “Finn” Mikkelmann and Jack Andy on drums, set out on a mission to create “an explosive cocktail of uncompromised [sic], melodic and extremely powerful rock ‘n’ roll”. Before changing their name to St. Prostitute the band released an EP, the deliciously titled ‘Get Drunk Or Try Dying’, in 2009 and have since visited LA’s hallowed Sunset Boulevard, to play some of the favourite haunts of their illustrious predecessors: the Viper Room and the infamous Whisky A Go Go.

‘Here Come The Prostitutes’ is their first long player where they’ve re-recorded three songs from their aforementioned EP along with seven new originals and the results are mightily impressive. Put simply, this is glam/sleaze-tinged Scandi rock at its very best but to restrict it to this genre would do it a disservice as this is a quality hard rock record...period! There’s such a good mix of well written, high quality songs here; from the sneering sleaze of ‘Here Come The Prostitutes’ and ‘Schizophrenia’ and the low slung grooves of ‘Say When It’s Over’ and ‘Crisis’ to the emotionally charged ‘Medicine’ and power ballads such as ‘Dreaming Of You’ and ‘A Bitter Man’s Lullaby’; that are all packed with big hooks and killer melodies. These are used to maximum effect on the hugely anthemic ‘I’m Not Falling’ – an absolute monster of a track that has already (and quite rightly) been “track of the week” in Classic Rock Magazine – where Fussy trades vocals with Danish actress/chanteuse Line Krogholm. The band are tight as nails and in Fussy they have a vocalist with tons of attitude and a voice to match, who is equally comfortable belting out his lyrics as he is at delicately expressing them in his rich, vibrant tones.

Erstwhile Glenn Hughes and Mike Tramp guitarist Soren Andersen has done a masterful job on the production. He’s managed to give the songs a commercial sheen: without compromising one iota on the down n’ dirty grooves that emanate from every pore of this wonderful album. I wouldn’t go far as to say that this is the best Scandi rock record to be released this year – that honour probably lies with Eclipse’s excellent Bleed & Scream – but ‘Here Come The Prostitutes’ is certainly up there. One thing’s for sure; it trounces the likes of Crazy Lixx, Wig Wam and Crashdiet’s recent output hands down. Yes, it’s that good.
