Is it 1986 again?

I'm talking about Swedish rockers Vains of Jenna. I've known about these guys for awhile now, but kept resisting the urge to listen to them for fear they wouldn't sound as promised.
Vains of Jenna really does have an early Motley Crue sound, while keeping a modern tone to their lyrics. The band even relocated from Sweden to Los Angeles, via the Sunset Strip! They've already played at the historic Whisky A Go-Go and are working on a larger tour in the coming months.

Their debut album "Lit Up/Let Down" features 10 songs, including the title track which is my favorite. The album dropped at the end of October, and music types started buzzing. That's when I balked. This week I caved, gave it a listen, and enjoyed what I heard.

The album was produced by former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke, which gives the album a bit of immediate credibility.

The sleaze glammers formed their band just a year ago, and they are young. We're talking about 18 years old people. That has to be a good sign, don't you think?
