Passport To Hell(2010)
THE REDHOT TRIO HAVE A NEW ALBUM OUT!
HERE'S A REVIEW OF THE ALBUM!!
"The album kicks off with ‘Black Dog’, which is a dark song about the depression, I think, which gives the listener the first indication that this is not your run of the mill, bass slapping, rockabilly album. There seems to have been a lot more thought gone into it. The next Track, ‘Crazy ‘bout you baby’, is a driving rocker built on an irrisistable guitar riff, that I think is great and will certainly get the dancefloor full. The third track changes pace again, and at best is a quick stroller, called ‘Too many thoughts’, and again, is obviously a well thought out piece of writing and there’s a great guitar solo as well!I wont go through every track, but just pick out the ones that I particularly like. “Black Stab”, hasechoes of another song, but I cant think what it is, but it’s mixed with some nice harmonica work..reminiscent of Dr Feelgood.“Down to Hell” is about the self destructive side of teenage life (I remember that!), a simple song but effective.Now if you’d have told me that there was a rockabilly band singing songs that included topical political comment I’d have called you a liar, but The Red Hot Trio do it with “Guns of Afghanistan”.Complete with poignant samples of news reports and the sounds of gunfire, the writer....simply named ‘Reece’ is obviously a composer of some talent. As is the fashion, the band only do one cover on the album and it’s a cover of Blondie’s “Hangingon the telephone”, which I liked a lot.The album overall is really very good....may I suggested that this is rockabilly for grown ups, the content is very mature and not the usual fare at all. Most bands seem to want to re-create the 50’s, but not in this case. The material is presented in it’s own right without any pretensions tobeing a retro rockabilly or a rock n roll band at all. The decision is a good one and I think that this album can elevate the band into the void that was vacated when Restless decided to give up. I think The Red Hot Trio are that good." - 'Crackerjack' magazine.
