THE STEVE DIOR BAND - Songs For The Wicked (An Unauthorized and Unofficial 3 Track Promo)

Steve Dior formed The Idols along with Barry Jones in 1976, by 1978 they had been joined by ex Heartbreakers and New York Dolls Jerry Nolan and Arthur Kane, The Idols became Sid Vicious's backing band at his Sid Sings at Max's Kansas City gigs, by the early 80's Kane had been replaced by another former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock and the band became The London Cowboys. In 1993 Steve formed Filthy Lucre with Phil Lewis from LA Guns, but that was then and now it's today.
Songs For The Wicked is set to be Steve's first album for fifteen years, and if the three tracks Some Kind of Saint, Song For The Wicked and Hanging Onto The Backside of Something Good are anything to go by it should be a good 'un. They take a reflective look at the world through Rock'n'Roll eyes, loads of subtle references to what's been going on over the last few years. If you are only as good as your last kiss, then Steve Dior and his band are gonna have to go something to top these tunes, cos they are all one hell of a whiskey soaked tongue in the mouth kiss! Soulful and slick with tinkling pianos and swooping soaring Rock'n'Roll guitar riffs'n'licks. The biggest surprise is Song for the Wicked which sounds like Johnny Cash fighting with Nick Cave over the last bottle of valium.   Like a good malt Steve's music has matured with age.  but....Hey don't take my word for it check it out here.
