I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

Nobodys Fool - 2001 II


NOBODYS FOOL - II (2001, MOONSTRUCK RECORDS)
Milosz Wozniak - vocals
B.K - guitars
Willy - bass, keyboards
Steve Mercer - drums


Background
Coming out of Sydney Australia are this four piece named Nobodys Fool who are slowly making a name for themselves on the local Aussie scene. The band members have played in different parts of the world and have settled down under to create a little bit of mayhem. Their music is high energy melodic rock, with no real discernible Aussie influence, but more European and North American flavours. Perhaps the closest I can settle on is a similarity to early Von Groove. Indeed lead singer Milosz Wozniak gives Mike Shotton a real run for his money all the way through. Four of these tracks have appeared previously as a small release promo.

The Songs
The opener 'Living In Another World' opens up with all the dramatic atmospherics of Roxus in their heyday. Nice keyboard arpeggios featured with some strong guitar lines and a stirring solo. 'Party' is a rollicking guitar driven piece, with party style choruses and chanting going on. Third track 'Easy' spent a bit of time on the chart lists at www.ozrock.com, and is a mid-paced effort where Milosz' voice unerringly ventures into Jeff 'Lox' Limbo (Fate) territory. 'Forbidden Fruit' struggles to make it into top gear, and though it has some interesting passages perhaps is not as compelling as those three we've heard before. 'Without You' is a ballad of sorts which I'm not utterly sure about. However, we do get back on the rock path with 'Heaven'. Ahh this is more like it. Listen to that seventies guitar style from B.K, with the wah wah going full pedal to the metal during the solo. 'Born To The Sun' sees the Roxus like sound return again. The guitar-heavy chorus is great on this one. Another ballad 'Guiding Lights' sees the band working up from acoustic guitar passages to a lead guitar crescendo at the finish.

In Summary
It is easy to see Nobodys Fool excelling at full-on guitar driven rockers, though they do have an admirable tendency to slow things down a bit. I'd suggest really letting the brakes off and going for it, as they sound superb when the odometer goes into freefall. The icing on the cake will be to get everyone doing their bit on the vocals. Usually in the melodic rock/AOR field one of the barometer tests is in this area. A few more gigs, more work in the studio, and who knows who's going to be fooling who in the near future!
