Chicks With Guns are another sleaze/glam act from Sweden. The band formed in 2006 and offered up this EP in December of 2008. Though short (it is an EP afterall), Chicks With Guns leave a lasting impression of sleaze, attittude, debauchery, great choruses and just an all around around fun rock ‘n’ roll vibe. I’m really interested in seeing these guys give us a full release because out of the many modern sleaze acts, On Your Mind is one of the best releases I’ve heard.

“On Your Mind” would be my favorite track here and it comes across very much like L.A. Guns, “Love At First Sight” is a close 2nd fave and I can’t complain about “Bullshit Boulevard” or “Love Is A Game” either! All in all, this is an EP that shows a band with a lot of talent and potential. Well worth looking into the Sunset Strip sound is your scene.

Highlight: The whole EP!

Gearing up for tons of reviews…

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in six days! Time has been flying lately, but don’t worry, music has been on my mind (and in my ears) all week long.

I’ve got TONS of reviews coming up as more and more is coming across my desk (and I’ve also been very active in purchasing lately). I hope to get at least one review out tomorrow, but here’s what bands you can expect to read about into all of next week, in addition to whatever oldies I pull from the rest of my personal collection to review…
