Barb Wire Dolls - Rub My MindHaving been signed personally to Motörhead Music by Lemmy himself, Barb Wire Dolls find themselves in a strange place. Thankfully the music stands up pretty well on its own merits. 


From the opening stomping riff of ‘Back In The USSA’ through to the refrained sounds of ‘Waiting To Be Lost’, ‘Rub My Mind’ smothers me with some great songs and hooks that make the Barb Wire Dolls a force to be reckoned with.


Albums wise this is the Dolls' fourth long player and it shows, as the music does most of the talking for them. The Greek band take no prisoners and display a fiery streak that can be lacking in bands today.


One thing that I found whilst listening the album is that they don't sound quite like anyone else. The band - made up of Isis Queen (vocals) Pyn Doll (lead guitar) Krash Doll (drums) Iriel Blaque (bass) and Remmington (rhythm guitar) - are making all the right sounds in today's disenfranchised music industry.


Although let's get back to the really reason we are here - which is, as always, the music, with songs which hark back to a time when the song ruled rather than image.  Songs such as ‘Hole Of Desolation’ mark the band above their peers: actually the Barb Wire Dolls have no immediate peers. They are carving out their own place in rock history by being themselves and releasing the music they love themselves.


From the Riot Grrl-esque ‘Call Me’ to the dreamy chords of ‘Fade Away’, the band shine the brightest with their more introspective songs. However, as always, this is just my opinion and I am smitten with this album. So much so that I will be raiding my piggy bank for the band’s full back catalogue.  That's how great this band are.
