LAST GREAT DREAMERS - 13th Floor Renegades (*A REVIEW*)


13th Floor Renegades is the new album from London Rock'n'Roll err!.... renegades Last Great Dreamers. The heart and soul of Last Great Dreamers is the song writing partnership between fellow guitarists and vocalists Marc Valentine and Slyder one which has lasted on and off for 30 years, and on this, the bands third album it has been distilled and fermented to produce a very special blend of the finest Rock'n'Roll brew I've tasted for a while. The Last Great Dreamers have taken the Stones/Faces/Who and Kinks rock'n'roll templates and twisted them into something completely different and produced another kind of blueprint. Eleven electric and eclectic examples of Rock'n'Roll that dares to be different.
This is timeless and tuneful, foot-tapping, heart aching and fist thumping stuff. Vocals are subtle and soulful, delicate and defiant, these songs mean something! Drums shuffle and pound, the bass bops and bends as guitars ring and riff, screech and slide with a never say die no surrender attitude.
Opening track New Situation is a catchy rocky poppy punky affair, which sets the tone for the rest of the album without spoiling the surprises. Title track 13th Floor Renegades is a dreamy post psychedelic tale of escaping the mundane. Then there's the wired and taut New Wave feel of Speed of Light and the mellow aching beauty of For Your Information. Which is followed by the backs to the wall balls out stomping strut of Primitive Man. The fast and frantic No Sunshine and I Think I Like It have rings of 90's Britpop/Indie to them and Broken Things sounds like a fight between The Only Ones and Social Distortion, while Miles Away is a floaty, folky and mournful affair. Whose Side are You On is blessed with some lovely vocal harmonies and Going Home is a crashing, crunchy and cascading epic end to this brilliant affair. Last Great Dreamers you should be very proud! and everyone else....Time to wake up!

13th Floor Renegades is released by Ray Records on  April....13th....a Friday, now for all you good people that's what I call.... lucky!  Further info on Last Great Dreamers can be found on their Facebook page, or website.
