Album Of The Day-Shame Club-"Come On" (2008)

The Album Of The Day is "Come On" by Shame Club.


Let's face it: most 70s-inspired rock bands reek of nostalgia. That's not to say they don't have moments of inspiration, but usually your average long-haired, blue-jeaned, Les Pauls 'n' Marshall stacks-wielding gang of roughnecks is content to ply their trade by pretending punk and Ronald Reagan never happened. Not so Shame Club. On Come On, the St. Louis quartet draws from the usual sources � Aerosmith, Thin Lizzy, ZZ Top, the dozens of one-album wonders from the early 70s. But they make it all sound fresh, as if they're inventing the vocabulary of Me-Decade hard rock before your very ears. I give credit not only to the band's firm command of the idiom, spot-on vocal harmonies and Jon Lumley's soulful keen, but to the uniformly strong songwriting. Lumley and crew aren't just hammering a basic riff to unimaginative 4/4 pounding, but penning real tunes with strong melodies, intelligent (and often casually funny) lyrics and real conviction. Gems like "Don't Feel Like Making Love," "Can You Feel It," "I Just Want You to Be Free" and "I Ain't Surprised" bear the marks of hard work in the craftsmanship department, even as they keep the loose spirit and passionate rock & roll flame burning bright. Come On is good shit. (Michael Toland, Sonicruin.com)
