Mmm the whiff of whiskey breath and the stomp of rhythm and blues!... one finds here a jolly ride round rude country riffs and smoky happy-hour bar-room crooning. These Swede traditional rock n rollers offer a short bundle of tunes that leaves a bright ambience and satisfying mood.
Contents consist of a familiar, rootsy, unkempt song structure and expected pace. I like track 4 'Glad Handing Dandy'. Its foot stomping opening, lonely guitar and bar punters' merry hand claps guide us through a modest drunken pub jingle that hints at development but never delivers it! The finale 'Bittersweet Goodbye' winds everything down heedfully. It is a farewell sentiment that is lyrically and musically heartfelt.
Overall 'Breakfast for Champions'
is short on tracks and short of variety, thus perhaps not innovative enough
to make much of a notable impact on the finicky modern listener but who's arsed?
Crooning one's balls off, was and always will be a self satisfying endeavour.
We have a bubbly bunch of racket makers doing what they do best. Their deep
passion for rock n roll is committed and commendable - churning out music that
is catchy, fun time, swingy, traditional and damn well sounds like they're having
a grin doing it. Old rockers n smellys will feel right toasty and cosy!
