Klassik ’78 release ‘Side One & Side Two TV Commercial’
Klassik ’78, who seemingly create better KISS era ’70s songs than the current KISS formation, have released a video dubbed Side One & Side Two TV Commercial to promote their Side One and Side Two EPs.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Klassik ’78‘s Side One and Side Two EPs:
“The first release from back in February, a six song effort entitled Side One, is apparently a real fix on early KISS. The guitars are crunchy and the drums prominent, with a focus on vocals. Opening track “Standing Tall” is quite good. I love the sound, although it lacks the nuance of today’s production. “Please And Tease” is a technical guitar driven track, again with a strong vocal line. I’m missing the high-end cymbals and clarity, but I get why it was recorded that way. Other tracks, like “Mean Business” and “Rock And Roll You” combine KISS vocals with an AC/DC guitar crunch. I’m pretty into this as an album, and more than I thought I might be.
Moving on to Side Two is a totally different experience. The songwriting is far more creative, while the production is of higher quality. I’m told by Tom that the drum tracks, for example, were using eight mics on this album, as opposed to three on the previous Side One. The first song “Ain’t No Fool” captures a true KISS sound, as does “American Made.” What is interesting to me is that Klassik uses the KISS model to create songs that actually stand up to modern tastes in pure guitar rock. This really exposes itself in the guitar line for “Hot On Her Heels”… a little faster beat and it could be Crashdïet or Hell In The Club. “Jendell” has a tad of Husker Du in it, with floating riffs but a focused vocal line.”
