Radioux City artworkGrowing, up Radioux City were something of a curiosity to me. Having known Gary Brandon from White Sister, I had only read about Radioux City, while never hearing them.

 

Gary, after touring with John Parr managed to form Radioux City with guitarist John Perez, with the pair subsequently getting together with drummer Pete Kneser and rhythm guitarist Sammy Brown. As a result, the band came up with a sound that resembled AC/DC meets Prince. The band tried their hardest to make it in the music industry; but, unfortunately, in 1992 it wasn't the best time for a band with a groove/soul metal sound. So, they packed it all in.

 

Fast forward to now and, having teamed up with UK based AOR Blvd Records, those original recordings can finally be heard. The 14 tracks here are testament to the strength of the band that should have been.

 

This release includes 11 original songs, as well as two fresh recordings from last year, and a track from the archive which has not been included on any previous releases.

 

The songs here sound like a breath of fresh air in today's copy and paste rock world. Coming across like a groovier Dan Reed Network, with splashes of those 'Apple Pie' singing White Trash, and throwing in some funk licks from UK groovers VIVID.

 

Songs like 'Shake A Leg', 'I Created a Monster' pulsate through the speakers with funkiness that got making making shapes that really should not be seen in the outside world.

 

Radioux City is a must have for rock fans with a fondness for dance, groove rock.
