Summary:

Title track 'Bad Habits ' has you hooked right from the start, with a stunning array of mega riffs even before the song gets into it's stroke. Paul Curtis wields his guitar like an ancient gladiator did his sword, working that six string goddess to produce a sound that will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing on edge!

 

 

From the first pluck of the strings, I just knew this was going to be a good album. With raunchy, lascivious little Bad Habits bringing to mind all manner of naughtiness, this is one earthy showcase of what real retro rock sounds like!Knighthood, Bad Habits

I’ve said this before, and forgive me for repeating myself, but Franks singing voice is just pure rock n roll. I really do believe he should be in the top five hall of fame for rock singers! You don’t get an amazing voice like his just singing in the local church choir! Plus with a song  writing team like Paul and Frank your guaranteed to get something special every time!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Title track ‘Bad Habitshas you hooked right from the start, with a stunning array of mega riffs even before the song gets into it’s stroke. Paul Curtis wields his guitar like an ancient gladiator did his sword, working that six string goddess to produce a sound that will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing on edge! This bawdy little song then takes you into the fantastic sleazy beat of ‘Frightman ‘ you can hear Frank cracking open a beer, he takes a sip, then belts out one truly magical rock n blues song. This track has the lot, starting with the slow steady undressing drum beat intermingled  with some great naked bass riffs, and then it’s all laced back up again with Paul Curtis’s lead guitar workings! I got so much into the zone with this song I just didn’t want it to end.  So I played it over and over for half an hour!!!

The already pre-released song ‘ Crying To The Moon ‘. A slightly slower paced song but not without it’s heavy punching chorus pounding on the skins of your speakers. This is a sure fire anthem track, great lyrics and easy to sing along with for the fans.

 

Now get a load of the song “Widow Ride ” followed at the end by just a little taste of the naughty “Kinky “!!

 

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is ‘ has a sound mix of every band I just love! From the Texas tones of ZZTop to the mega blasting Aussie riffs of AC/DC, these guys have worked their arse’s off to bring you a song stuffed with more spicy meaty British rock n roll than a Dominoes stuffed crust pizza! An absolute stonking good song!!

One of the latest tracks on this brilliant album is called ‘ Xcellerator ‘. I’ve heard them say that the opening riff can sometimes either make or break a song! Let me tell you all right now, this is one song that ain’t for the breaking baby! A true classic opening to a great song. Xcellerator is one of those songs that will be featured in future ‘Rock As You Drive’ type compilation CD’s! The steady beat of the drums and bass guitar working together give this song a solid foundation to build a towering rock track that should stand the test of time!

The new album is being released via Red Lola Records on the 1st of December 2014.The format will be CD and MP3
