Guess who has secured a record deal with a major label. Brooklyn glam rockers Semi Precious Weapons have re-recorded a couple of songs from their self-released 2007 debut We Love You and thrown in a new one for a self-titled 3 track EP.
The originals may have sounded a little rough but far more livelier than version 2.0. A bigger budget doesn't equal a better overall sound. Singing that you are "fucking gorgeous" is a bit troublesome for the suits. But the fun is still in there and there are no bozos telling them to refrain from taking risks and raising hell when they tear through their repertoire on stage. Sleazy, loud and plenty of in-between songs banter brimming with sexual innuendo, like rock used to be.
The Semi Precious Weapons EP is released on Interscope.Tracks:
- Semi Precious Weapons
- Magnetic Baby
- Put A Diamond In It
