Waltham are a fun band who are well worth a mention here at GDM. Born in the nu-breed era, these blokes took the piss out of the radio industry during the late 90's, deciding to play the much derided style of the 80's which was frowned upon by the suits at the time. Just as well they did, because radio still has no clue a decade later.. lol! Yes Clear Channel, I'm talking about you. Named after their home town of Waltham, Massachusetts - this band center around the brothers Dave and Frank Pino. Their fun-filled style of melodic pop/rock takes a huge chunk out of the Rick Springfield and Cheap Trick songbook. For modern day rockers, you can add in the likes of Harem Scarem and Adriangale, though not as heavy as both those outfits, but similar in energy and delivery. Waltham have released three full length albums ('First Album', 'Permission To Build', 'Waltham') plus two EP's including this latest one 'Wicked Waltham'.

The Songs
'Wicked Waltham' had been in the can during 2013, and was the band's first recording since 2006's EP 'Awesome'. Other tracks were assembled, with 5 tracks finally released digitally in April 2014. 'You're Everything That I Want' has a bit of Harem Scarem about it, and will appeal to many of you here. Waltham create short and sweet sugar bullets, 'The Highway' being a classic example, based on The Outfield's 80's style. Tracks like these are great for parties! You can't go wrong with 'Drive Me Crazy', melodic pop/rock that we've all heard a million times before and still sounds great even now. 'Stand N' Fight' as per the song-title takes a tougher stance, and has a faster tempo and combative energy. 'Still In Love' is another hark-back to the early 80's with references including The Cars and all those who dabbled in that melodic pop/new wave crossover style.

In Summary
I've since picked up a copy of this with a bunch of other tracks added to the original five, being purchase only copies of tracks recorded recently. This is an excellent little set of tracks that GDM regulars should track down. While you're at it, go and find the rest of their discography. All worthy additions to your collection.
