Glamstar review

"Why question yourself when you know you're right?" wails Paul Carden as the drums thump, the guitar screeches and the gods of rock welcome a young pretender to the stage. 'Glamstar' does have an infectious beat. There's also some shouting, repetition of the title of the song ad nausea and just possibly time to perform a guitar solo. My former colleague journalist David Adair called 'The Black Velvets': a 'scorching scouse quartet'. The four-piece from Liverpool are one of these bands of the moment. 'Glamstar' features, I'm told, elements of T-Rex and Ocean Colour Scene. 'Glamstar' isn't a bad record, it's a mediocre rock ballad full to the brim with the same horse whispers of vocals that every aspiring rock combo present on stage. Back to the drawing board boys.
