Gatecrashers are a sleaze/glam/rock/punk band from Norway. They count the likes of Mötley Crüe, Hanoi Rocks, Motörhead, Ramones, New York Dolls, L.A. Guns, Dogs D'Amour, W.A.S.P., Twisted Sister, amongst their influences and play a kin of high-energy glam sleaze punk. The album is produced by the band themselves, which probably explains why it's a little fuzzy sounding at times, maybe the guys should invest in hiring a good producer because some of the songs on here sound pretty decent. Again there's nothing here that you haven't heard a million times before, although admittedly songs like 'Get the Fuck Out', 'Out of Here Alive' and 'Riot Kids' are really fun.
If you like your music a
little lo-tech, full of energy and well, fun then you could do a lot worse.
Unfortunately there are so many bands playing this kind of music and many of them doing it so much better, sorry.
