Mama Kin - As Glam As It Gets

Well, kids, it is Monday yet again. As we all start yet another week of school or work or whatever - it is time to ponder a serious question: could Mama Kin of Sweden be any more glam?!

I think being from Sweden has just about everything to do with the band's sound. Sure, the influences are clear (Guns n' Roses much?) but there's also something about modern Swedish bands...the vocal tone just lends itself to Glam. It's like, you could have a Swedish group dream of recording country tunes...but I'm pretty sure it would end up something like "Youth Gone Wild" with a twang or something. Here, check out Mama Kin. Their songs are available now on iTunes.

"Superman"


 


"In the City"

I saw these guys last year and they were GREAT. The album totally sounds like an 80's cheesy KISS record. And yes, thats a GOOD thing!

I have been turned on to these guys for the past year or so. Great album. Love the tune Mrs. Operator. They have a great presence too.

Pretty decent band, but I think their choice of band name is misguided. the name Mama Kin creates the expectation in the listener's mind that they are going to sound like old Aerosmith. However, instead of the raw, bluesy attitude-laiden hard rock of old Aerosmith, you get a pretty good melodic rock band whose lead singer sounds like paul stanley with less vocal range. Like I said, not a bad band really, but they should consider changing their name.

Bob is absolutely correct. The band name is horrid.

The very first review I submitted on Amazon was for this very album.In fact it's only one of two I've ever done. The comparison of a glammed-up KISS is dead on. I really like them.

They're great. The name's great.

THIS is REAL ROCK'n'ROLL!

Wake up, America!
