Glam fans, I've got a new band for you: L.U.S.T., all the way from Sydney, Australia. Before we go any further, I should mention L.U.S.T. does not have a record deal. They self-released a debut album and shipped me a copy to spin.
The self-titled debut features these songs:
That's Rock n' Roll
Get 'em Out!
Stay With Me
My favorite songs are "Little Devil" and "Stay With Me." L.U.S.T. have a good vibe and a strong sound. They still need some polish, but there's great potential for big Glam fun.
So who are L.U.S.T.? Mikey handles vocal duties, Ronnie plays guitar, Sindy plays drums and Pete plays bass. Before you ask, yes, Sindy is a guy! This is a young group of Glamsters, about as far from the Sunset Strip as humanly possible. Still, L.U.S.T. are carrying the torch for our favorite type of music. You can give them a listen at their official Myspace page.
Maybe Christian or Railene can help us out here - is there a big Glam scene down under? I hope so - Australia is tops (just behind Sweden) as one of the places I must visit. I want to go to native rock clubs and *hopefully* listen to Glam.
