The Deer’s Head Music Hall
Friday 10 September, 8.00pm
They’re back! A decade on from their last album, Sin-Sational, the Sabrejets have just unleashed another high-octane long-player of timeless rock’n’roll. Featuring fifteen foot-stomping tracks, The Restless Kind is greaser heaven from start to finish.
The Restless Kind is in many ways an appropriate title for the band as well as the album. Core members Brian Young (ex Rudi) on guitar and lead vocals, Liam Killen on guitar and vocals, and “Wild” Bill Johnston on bass have been together for a quarter of a century and show no sign of picking up their pensions anytime soon. Joining the rock’n’roll veterans on this long-player is the newest Sabrejets member Lou Steele on drums and vocals.
Songwriting duties on the album are shared between Young and Killen. The subject matter is classic old-school greaser rock. Faster Than The Eye Can See is a driving epic featuring guns, booze, and fast cars while Zorita pays tribute to the famous burlesque dancer.
The music throughout is tight and perfectly executed with energetic abandon as guitars twang and riff out blazing solos alongside pounding drums and buoyant bass. The Killen-penned instrumental Lightnin, the Western-inspired Train To Hell, and the deceptively upbeat Don’t Turn Your Back On Love could sit easily on the soundtrack of a Tarantino movie.
With subject material that harkens back to the silver age of cinema and black and white movies about fast cars, alcohol, women, and motorcycles, The Restless Kind delivers entertainment in glorious technicolor with rip-roaring music and style.
