Raven - Party Killers cover

Named after the response to the Gallagher brothers’ teenage penchant for playing awesome hard rock at parties frequented by those of less enlightened musical taste, Party Killers is a companion piece to the Newcastle legends’ latest studio album Extermination.

Recorded using extra funds raised for that album’s recording through a crowd funding campaign, and comprising eleven Raven-ised favourites from the likes of Deep Purple, Queen and Slade, Party Killers quite possibly may never have been meant to be taken seriously.

It should be though – when John Gallagher screams through Cheap Trick’s He’s A Whore, Mark Gallagher peals off another fantastic guitar solo in Budgie’s In For The Kill, or drummer Joe Hasselvander pummels his way through Bowie’s Hang On To Yourself, the greatest realisation is that although they never achieved the same sales or public awareness as these bands they’ve covered, Raven leave behind them a similar wealth of legacy and influence.
