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

Back in 1988 House Of Lords were not the only band into wearing frilly, lacey shirts. Britny Fox probably did it even better, though musically the two bands were miles apart. The slickness of House Of Lords was a stark constrast to the bluesy hard rock of Dizzy Dean Davidson and cohorts. 15 years on and not much has changed for Britny Fox, except for a change of singer and the dispensing of those lovely frilly shirts.

The Songs
Musically 'Springhead Motorshark' still keeps to the fairly brash hard rock the band are known for. Though they've still got their feet planted somewhat in the past, it's less in the late 80's and early 90's than perhaps the 70's with a number of the tracks having a retro feel with a modern twist. Such as the Meatloaf styled ballad 'LA' and the heavy 70's groove of the instrumental title track and Zeppelin-ish 'Sri Lanka'. On the other hand, there are some quite modern sounding tracks such as the opener 'Pain', which is crunchy and a good start. The reasonable start to the album is continued on 'Freaktown'. Some quite cool soloing on this one. There's even a power pop element on T.L.U.C. (for you). The front half of the album is definitely stronger, as the latter tracks such as 'Far Enough', 'Memorial' and 'Lonely Ones' don't bring anything to the party.

In Summary
I don't think 'Springhead Motorshark' is going to get the masses talking, or even many of Britny Fox's fans. The album feels like what Warrant and Skid Row tried to do with 'Ultraphobic' and 'Sub Human Race' respectively. People didn't want to hear it back then and the same will probably be said for 'Springhead Motorshark'. Definitely a 'fan's only' type release.
