Review of two Adam West 7" singles in Carbon 14 - January 2002
Adam West - "Sixth Son of a Seventh Son" / "You Can't Stop Rock And Roll" 7" (Lonestar)
Adam West - "In the Back of My Hearse" / "Find It!" 7" (Bad Attitude)
Two 7"s with an original on the A-side and a cover on the flip. With a nod and a wink to Iron Maiden and outright idolatry of Twisted Sister, the first of these two Adam West 45s is loaded with Testosterrock. Sizzlingly recorded with an appropriately metal vibe, "Sixth Son" is a bongload full of metal, and the only thing Jake's missing on the B-side is some of that Dee Snider eyepaint. "In the Back of My Hearse" is more hard rock than metal, but there's still enough for the average mullet to grab onto. "Find It!" is a furious, pounding cover of the Carrie Nations song in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, and it might be the best version of the song I've ever heard; it IS that good.
