Danish Southern Rock? Who’d a thunk it? If you love the likes of Georgia Satellites, The Stitchpig Revival, Havana Black (circa ‘Indian Warrior’), Motor Jesus, Alligator Jackson, The Georgia Thunderbolts … then you very simply NEED this album. This is balls to the wall, red-blooded, hoodlum thunder Suvvern Rawk, that is unashamedly free of bells ‘n’ whistles, and that careers along like an out-of-control juggernaut fuelled on moonshine!

This eight-legged boogie machine: Kurt Noesgaard (vocals), Morten Noren (guitars), Jesper Willumsgaard (bass) and Lars Groth (drums) makes music that makes you want to stamp your feet and bang your head in glorious abandon, and that’s a wonderful feeling in these dark days, I have grown to really love ‘Redneck Gasoline’, it’s unpretentious, asskickin’ Rawk ‘n’ Roll that simply hits the spot neverendingly.

Crunching riffs, pounding rhythms, big hooks and killer choruses are what Suckerpunch is all about, their sound is captured to perfection by a nice hard as nails production job, it’s whiskey-fuelled bravura-fed rock that refuses to take prisoners … and I love it! It’s not fancy or elegant, but it’s infectious and joyous, and that’s what counts!

It’s genuinely weird remembering that this is European Southern Rock you are hearing, as the band sounds like they have come straight out of the Florida swamplands, or the Bayou – it’s simply totally authentic sounding, and the band should be applauded loudly for that. This is music that demands to be cranked up loud to window-rattling volume in celebration of life – and I’ll drink to that – hell yeah!

The music moves ‘n’ grooves organically, there is nothing manufactured here, it’s rooted in redneck culture and badass lawlessness – ideal for hammering down the highway in an equally loud V8 pickup, or cruising on a loud-piped Harley, giving the finger to ‘the man’ as you do so. It ain’t pretty, subtle, or sophisticated, but what it is – is vibrant, gritty, thunderous Rock music – and I cannot get enough of this glorious album! Yee-Haw!
