Probably has limited crossover appeal to anyone outside the Sleaze/Glam Rock genre.

You will not be surprised to learn that Spanish band Leather Boys pedal a style of Glam/Sleaze Hard Rock reminiscent of Tigertailz, Pretty Boy Floyd and Michael Monroe where attitude appears to be just as important as the music itself. Just look at the band member's names; Leather Rose (vocalist), Leather Sex (guitarist), Leather Dangerous Dick (guitarist) (stated as Leather Dirty Duke on their Facebook page), Leather Bluesman (bass) and Leather Preacher (drums) to highlight said point.

The genre of music could also be deducted from many of the song titles like 'Hard Sex Girl', 'Lord Of The Whores' and the over the top 'Sexagenary Sex'. 'Back In The Streets' is the sophomore release following on from 2011's debut 'Real Leather'. The album was recorded last summer at ACME Studios (Avilés, Asturias, Spain) and has a punchy production from Spanish producer Miguel Herrero.

If I had completed my review of 'Back...' after only half a dozen listens then it would have been somewhat different to my final version. You see, this album has the aforementioned attitude in spades but the songs are certainly not instantaneous on the memory and require multiple listens to permeate under your skin. Add to the latter the gruff, Punk-style delivery of Rose's vocals and I certainly felt I had my work cut out providing a positive review. It may also be a little unfair to LB in that I always use Mötley Crüe's 'Too Fast For Love' (ironically originally released on Leathur Records) as the yardstick for this type of music.

The album opens with the first single 'Leather Gunner' which the band also shot a video for featuring pole dancer Daniella Berluchi and featuring guest vocalist Flichy Hickock (Fago Cowboys). Repeated listens do reveal some cool riffs and melodies such as those found in 'The Best', 'Cries In The Night' and 'Sweet Revelation'. 'Heart Of Stone' is a raucous ballad whilst 'Rock And Roll Gets Me High' features saxophonist Juan Flores from Ilegales and as such has a MM feel to it. 'Riding, Fighting & Drinking' does plod a little and is juxtaposed to the much faster 'Backstabber' with its gang backing vocals. The album concludes with the fine ballad 'Butterfly Wings' featuring guest vocalist Laura Gonzalez (Kwen, she also appears on '...Girl' and '...Whores) although the tune is somewhat at odds with the style of the rest of the album.

As mentioned, the album has attitude – indeed more attitude than an Essex girls' hen night party – but probably has limited crossover appeal to anyone outside the Sleaze/Glam Rock genre.
