Sweethead

    Best known for his participation in Queens Of The Stone Age, Van Leeuwen is joined by Serrina Sims, Norm Block on drums (Mark Lanegan Band, Plexi) and Eddie Nappi on bass (Mark Lanegan Band, Handsome) in his second ensemble. Named after a Bowie B-side, Sweethead may well be a hit with purveyors of West Coast sultry rock as the band ride the star power of the vampish Sims, who belts out "her seedy glam tunes with a seductive assurance on par with Chrissie Hynde and Kleveland's Stephanie Smith.

    Best known for his participation in Queens Of The Stone Age, Van Leeuwen is joined by Serrina Sims, Norm Block on drums (Mark Lanegan Band, Plexi) and Eddie Nappi on bass (Mark Lanegan Band, Handsome) in his second ensemble. Named after a Bowie B-side, Sweethead may well be a hit with purveyors of West Coast sultry rock as the band ride the star power of the vampish Sims, who belts out "her seedy glam tunes with a seductive assurance on par with Chrissie Hynde and Kleveland's Stephanie Smith. 'Slashed tires and a cut of vampires left you open to a right-wing malevolence,' she hisses enigmatically amid Van Leeuwen's seesawing chords and a sinisterly insistent Stooges piano lurking just below the waterline of 'The Great Disruptors.' It's that modern rarity - a straight-up hard-rock song that's not ironic or stupid, infused instead with plenty of glittery atmosphere and sexual danger. Sims maintains her cool allure even on faster, punk-style rave-ups like 'We Turned Our Backs,' raising expectations all the higher for the album." - Falling James, LA Weekly.

    SWEETHEAD is Troy Van Leeuwen, Serrina Sims, Norm Block and Eddie Nappi. « hide
