@louelladeville_ @ planetmosh review of @CaptainBedderz Confessions of a Working Class Tosser.

On his Facebook Page Captain’ Bedderz is described as a ‘never been’ punk rock guitarist, bassist, singer & songwriter with 20 years of experience in the music industry. His first solo album ‘Confessions of a Working Class Tosser’ was recorded at 3nine studios and released earlier this year.

It’s a fusion of Alternative Rock, Punk Rock, Hard Rock, Hip Hop, Punk and plain old Rock n Roll with an electronic vibe think Marilyn Manson meets a cross between Placebo, Sigue Sigue Sputnik and The Human League. I’m not going to cover each song just pull out a few highlights/observations. Shame was something like Cream’s Sunshine of My Love (done electro punk style) meets The Stooge’s I Wanna Be Your Dog with a bit of T Rex’s 20th Century Boy riffage thrown in. I Don’t Care About You has some great keyboards and riffs and kind of reminds me of Iggy Pop’s I’m Bored on speed.

Diseased has a flavour of Pop Will Eat Itself’s Beaver Patrol. I caught some Shadow’s Apache style riffage in Running and Hey You (Yeah You) is reminiscent of You’re Ready Now by Slaughter and the Dogs. Salvation has elements of Give It Away by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

An eclectic and interesting mix. Highlight Track – Shame.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
