Giuda: Racey Roller: LP
This record is designed to resemble a long lost glam gem right down to the phony wear marks on the cover. It’s a dead-solid LP of Glitterbest-style anthems mixed with a bit of pub rock attitude. The album loaded with jovial choruses and shameless hand clapping interludes. “Number 10” has hands slapping in the best tradition of The Bay City Rollers’ “Saturday Night.”  That’s right, I mentioned The Bay City Rollers. Don’t pretend you’re too cool to like “Saturday Night.” The upbeat antics of T. Rex and Mud are evoked in the band’s ability to construct a compulsively catchy chorus. “Coming Back to You” utilizes a style of back and forth vocals that exemplifies the simple fun in writing rock lyrics. The songs on this album sound and feel as if they could have been classics during a time when rock was just about to turn into punk. Fans of Killed By Glam and Glitterbest should take note of this band. They may not bring back wide suspenders, but you might think about it.
