"We're GODS LONELY MEN"
Gods Lonely Men are not The Lurkers, well they are, except in name. Original Lurkers Pete Stride, Nigel Moore and Esso have got together with a new name that gives a nod to the past and a bunch of songs from the present. It's hard not to compare GLM to The Lurkers, so I'll try not to. I've not got a lot to go on as moneys tight so I haven't been able to buy a copy of the album, but I have heard the three tracks posted on their website, which are worthy enough of a review. GLM have a dark and heavy sound, while still maintaining those trade mark Lurker guitar licks'n'riffs and that rhythm. Vocal duties are handled by Pete, with his distinctive vocal delivery. Every Night's A Story, is a catchy little chugger of a tune. Surviving is a half spoken half sung tune that gets into yer head and buzzes about. Chemical Landslide which is available here to download for free is a no frills but a lots of thrills blast of old school punk pop. A welcome return to Pete, Nigel and Esso, and on the strength of these three tracks, if I had it, I would splash the cash on a copy of the album. So if you've got it, go spend it here!
