Summary:

Snakebite by Birmingham based Hard Rock band Silent Jack was released late last year. I liked it immediately. Packed with great songs and screaming riffs. Flavours of Motley Crue, Reckless Love, Poison, Bowie and even The Osmonds (Crazy Horses is a great track). A well-deserved five stars!

Snakebite by Birmingham based Hard Rock band Silent Jack was released late last year. I liked it immediately. Here’s a bite-size taster! From start to finish this seven track album was packed with great songs and screaming riffs. Brand New Start had a bit of Crazy Horses by The Osmonds whinny. Angels Cry a mellower track reminding me of Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust. Hot Luvin’ a bit Reckless Love’s Bad Luvin’. King Cobra – catchy!

The highlight track has got to be Made in Heaven I’m thinking Kickstart My Heart meets Dancing on Glass by Motley Crue. A well-deserved five stars!

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!
