Review of "Adam West Digs Scandinavian Chicks!" 7" in CR-Entertainment, March 2003
Adam West - Digs Scandinavian Chicks! 7" Vinyl (Bootleg Booze Records)
I was quite surprised when I opened the packet I got from Bootleg Booze Record's Andreas. I expected much, but not this much. This 7" comes in a very nice sleeve with cool pics of Jake Starr and the band. Good news also for colour freaks, the goodie is made out of wonderful pink vinyl.
This single is limited to 500 copies, 52 come in a fancy "Hollywood-XXX-Edition" box which will only be available for purchase through HOT STUFF Mailorder.
Just as the title of this record says, Adam West digs scandinavian Chicks... and of course, especially those who play in band. To show their respect to some of the best female rock'n'roll acts of modern scandinavia this single contains cover versions of songs by Finland's Thee Ultra Bimbos and Norways Mensen.
"We're Inside" by Thee Ultra Bimbos is in my opinion better than the original. Adam West play it a bit faster and groovier than the Thee Ultra Bimbos. And Jake Starr can sing... really... Even if the sleeve notes say "Throat": Jake Starr.
"Cruiser" written by Mensen from Norway is a cool punk song. Fast and straightforward, the right kind of music for fast driving.
This is indeed a very special 7" for real Connoisseurs.
