Mars Needs Women

"Sparking Ray Gun" CD

Like Uncle Joe's Big Ol' Driver and Rocket From The Crypt, Mars Needs Women is here to turn their guitars up to eleven, forget the trendy, tuneless grunge fad and rock the motherfuckin' roof off. Sounding at times like dirtier, louder version of Cheap Trick (the FIRST album), M.N.W. bring catchy, driving, punk-inspired rhythms to the world of 70's arena rock. Like Cheap Trick, the music is full of lyrical clichés, quick jack-off guitar solos and fist-pumping choruses and yet, for some reason, sounds inspired, fresh and exciting. "Sparking Ray Gun" virtually demands to be cranked up LOUD and, if played properly, might just make you believe in rock and roll again. (TOM)
