Cheetah Chrome - Solo

Cheetah Chrome. If you're going to have a 'nom de rock' then Cheetah Chrome is a hell of a one to choose. 'Solo' is, as the name suggests, the first solo work released by the 'Dead Boys' and 'Rocket From The Tombs' co-funder and bona fide US punk legend. 7 tracks pulled from sessions in both 1996 (yeah, they took a while to surface) and 2010, the latter featuring the New York Dolls' Sylvain Sylvain. You might already have an idea how this album/EP will sound and you're not far wrong. In a very good way. From the opening surf pop instrumental intro of 'Sharky' through 'Rollin' Voodoo's Beefheart-ian boogie via Stare Into The Night's garage punk and No Credit's prime 1978 authentic air of CBGB's to the closing 'Love Song To Death' which demonstrates a Springsteen-esque nod to an embracing of classic rock, 'Solo' is a quality trawl through the sounds and influences of late 70s New York from one of the men who was there at the start.
