Artist

Genre

These Valencian blokes are supremely confident, ready to hit the stage and raise hell at any time.

Lock up your daughters, mothers and sisters, 'cause here they come. Horny and overexcited even in their "boobalistic" Manga-like comic cover artwork and their Sleazy/nasty postures, this band from Spain is also absolutely enjoyable when talking about their musical profile. Jolly Joker's sound is definitely caught in between a Faster Pussycat scratching fever and a Zodiac Mindwarp Love Reaction, though classic folkloristic hints of Mötley Crüe and Skid Row surely don't go amiss either. 'Rocking In The Stereo', the album's first track (as well as the first video clip), very much represents all the spirit of these five hombres; that's to say loud guitars, biting choruses and hot chicas.

Next, it's 'Hey You', with its essential lyrics and Punkish attitude that reminded me somewhat of a more commercial version of T.S.O.L., a cult band from California that, after a primitive Punk scene involvement, converted themselves to a more approachable Sleaze Rock exploitation. 'No Way Out' revs up and whirrs like Nashville Pussy would but with the Melodic Punk attitude of The Backyard Babies.

By the way, this new album was mastered at Seawolf Studios in Helsinki (one of the capitals of the renewed Street Rock scene) and maybe some of the sound slickness is derived from that peculiar environment, as well as due to the large experience this group gained while touring around Spain in support of very influential bands like Warrior Soul, Adam Bomb, The Quireboys and Hardcore Superstar. The style of the latter can be easily detected in the effervescent melody of 'Full Of Beans' and 'Perfect Life'.

Nevertheless, don't get me wrong and don't think Jolly Joker isn't able to show off their personality, which is absolutely capable of standing out by itself. You can clearly feel these Valencian blokes are supremely confident, ready to hit the stage and raise hell at any time, not to mention the fact they created a perfect connection between their image/artwork and their music, which is quite indispensable in this genre. After all, who wouldn't love a band whose drummer is called "Kickstarts" ...?
