AGITATED / R.I.P. SOCIETY
These Melbourne natives play music that’s reminiscent of a mythical time when guitar music’s material of choice was transitioning from denim to leather.
Post-hippie, pre-punk era rock ‘n’ roll meets the origins of New Wave of British Heavy Metal, with a glimmer of Sunset Strip feel-good excess. This record extends on the muscle and bite of their debut 7” with a startling leap in the departments of power, precision and overall toughness. The ladies in the band say their main influences are KISS and Danzig, but we hear a bunch of gals from a punk/D-I-Y/basement rock perspective getting hip to Di’anno-era Iron Maiden and Girlschool.
