Generation Swine - Fuel n Fire CD

Adelaide’s doyens of sleazy radness, GENERATION SWINE, have cut their teeth on two smell-of-an-oily-rag low budget EP’s in recent years, both of which got a lot of rotation at 100% ROCK HQ, and finally they’ve delivered their debut full length opus.

I’ve said before (and will doubtless do so again) – Adelaide is the sleaze rock capital of our sunburnt country, and Generation Swine lead the pack in the City Of Churches, keep proceedings rough n’ raw on Fuel ‘n’ Fire, just like they should.

The band – Matty, Cam, Oopie & Stace – have done a great job to harness the raw energy of The Swine, and it’s bursting from every groove on Fuel n’ Fire.

From the methanol-fuelled title track and sleaze-dripping pop metal Doin’ It Ruff, through a touching Another Day, showcasing Matty D’Amore’s sensitive vocal side, it’s obvious that the past couple of years have seen Generation Swine mature in both the songwriting and musicianly departments.

It Ain’t Easy fairly bristles with Appetite For Destruction danger and aggression, Without You is another tender moment, and Fatal Attraction, which originally appeared on their self titled demo EP in 2009 sounds a hundred times classier in this format.  Closing with a genial singalong, Every Little Thing makes sure the listener is left with a smile on their face before reaching for the PLAY button once again.

Fuel ‘n’ Fire is a great debut album from a great band which you really should get behind, especially if you’re into Motley Crue/Skid Row style hair metal.  Personally, as greedy as it is, I’m ready for the follow up – this is some addictive shit!!!
