Summary:

A good album, raw and energetic combining Glam/Punk and Sleaze. My overall impression was NiteRain meets Bones, two bands who are very different in style NiteRain being more Glam and Bones describing themselves as Death Metal Sleaze. Speedshot combine the vocals of NiteRain vocalist Sebastian Tvedtnæs and the brutally fast fiffs and beats of Bones.

On the eleventh day of Christmas PlanetMosh gave to me ‘eleven songs a spitting’ I don’t think there’s one piper on the third album by Flitwick Punk/Rock trio Speedshot but plenty to keep you hooked! Speedshot formed in 2008 and have already released 3 EPs and 2 albums and have played extensively throughout the UK. Their third album ‘SPIT’ was released independently in July 2014. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Justin Saban at Latent Lemon Studios in 4 days. Frontman Danny Young says “We decided to keep this album as real as possible. All the songs are played the same way we play them live with no over dubs or fancy effects. One album that influenced us for this approach in particular was Fun House by The Stooges

Short fast and furious opening track Fuck Vulcan hits you like a speeding vulcan bomber! Then a roller coaster takes you through eleven tracks of fast, aggressive, drumming, screaming riffs, Exploited style yelps and some military beats. My overall impression was NiteRain meets Bones, two bands whose albums I reviewed but which are very different in style NiteRain being more Glam and Bones describing themselves as Death Metal Sleaze. Speedshot combine the vocals of NiteRain vocalist Sebastian Tvedtnæs and the brutally fast fiffs and beat of Bones. I also picked up a bit of Placebo and Nirvana. I Know You was an interesting mix of Motorhead’s We Are The Road Crew meets Sex Type Thing by Stone Temple Pilots.

I didn’t get the bonus track version which the Amazon link takes you to but you can get the bonus track version for £7.99 which includes two extra tracks Get Driven and Start Again. I hadn’t heard of Speedshot before but I’ll certainly look out for them from now on. A good album combining Glam/Punk/Sleaze from the Bedford three piece getting a worthy four stars from PlanetMosh.

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!
