Music Review: Rambos

Rock and Roll Monsters (Grape Juice)
Rambos reached back a couple of decades for inspiration when they were constructing their Frankenstein monster of rock and roll... and that's as far as I can go with that metaphor. It's a shame too 'cause I really wanted to build up from the Frankenstein bit, but Rambos stick to a straight ahead rock sound—a bit like X, but maybe not as dark or poetic. They’re a little more light-hearted, a lot less serious—like Rambo. (Rambo was a fun guy too in his down time, when he wasn’t doing things that would make a billy goat puke.) Rambos write songs about monsters and vampires, Chuck Taylors and livin’ in the U.S.A. They lay those songs out with reverb, male/female vocals, rousing choruses and pun-based word play like in the tune “Poet Murder” (and I said they weren’t poetical, well shame on me. Shame on Muggsy)—Muggsy "McMonster" McMurphy [Rambos]
