Chrome Reverse / They Wanna Fight
(Mag Wheels Records, France)
Here comes the long awaited debut album after a handful of 45's from Parisian band CHROME REVERSE, formed by Lili Z. and Iwan (previously in snotty garage bands like No-Talents, Splash Four, Les Terribles, Loud Mufflers, Volt etc.) to do the stuff they’d always been obsessed with—R&B primitivism and dirty, early 60's R'n'R (known in Frogland as "white rock").
Stripped down roquers, weird rompin' strollers, cranked up guitar instrumentals, 5 covers by some of their late 50's heroes as well as their own Lili Z. penned bent tunes are but a sampling of the many moods of CHROME REVERSE's "They wanna fight". If you like your R'n'R raw, sloppy, greasy and frantic topped with a chick screaming her lungs & heart out, this one's for you. A Hot and Heavily recommended LP! If you dig early CRAMPS and "Big Pine Boogie" era Gibson Bros, etc. they'll certainly be your alley.
