OCTANE GYPSY " Tough Luck Mile "
( Self - released ) 2008.


Sleaze/hard rock - USA

Out of Hollywood comes Octane Gypsy band, active some period on local circuit. They work as a quartet, and have an interesting female fronted singer Eleanor Goldfield "Swede". A band has introduced themselves with 4 track EP, entitled "Tough Luck Mile" . Octane Gypsy are faithful to sleaze/hard rock variants with presence of some retro 70's/80's additionals and flavours as well. Some comparizitions leads to Motley Crue, Guns 'n' Roses, Cinderella performing options . A band has offered a raw sound, but melodic tendencies are also evident and they played manniristically relevant.
Their materials are acceptable maybe more for concert atmosphere, even that its studio offering also satisfies. I would mention a Rolling Stones cover from EP, "Honky Tonk Woman ", where band has offered an interesting not only a repeatable version.

Rating : 7,5/10
