Little Caesar’s ‘Redemption’ To Get Reissued With Bonus Track
May 29, 2010
Little Caesar’s ‘Redemption’ CD, which appeared on Sleaze Roxx’s Top 10 of 2009, will be reissued by Rock Candy Records on July 19th. ‘Redemption’ will be part of Rock Candy Records relaunch of their sister label Grind That Axe, designed specifically to handle new releases from established artists. ‘Redemption’ will be available for pre-order starting on July 1st (and shipping on July 12th) at www.rockcandyrecords.co.uk.
Twenty years ago if you were an MTV devotee – and let’s face it most of us were – you’d have had your senses assaulted by blasts of soulful hard rock from Little Caesar, a tatted-up bunch of lean ‘n’ mean biker boys from Los Angeles. They stood out a mile from the big haired, lipstick smeared glam contingency displaying a complete disregard for fads and fashion (always a sign of quality) which was proven by a cool-as-a-cucumber cover of ‘Chain Of Fools’, a sixties r ‘n’b classic made popular by Aretha Franklin. It was a convincing performance alright, separating the men from the boys by virtue of its pulsating energy and vocalist Ron Young’s gargantuan vocal delivery.
In 2010, Little Caesar can be found moving forward with a vengeance. The band has crafted a new album, titled ‘Redemption’, a record full of vim and vinegar. Going back to their roots – not that they ever left them – the emphasis is on tough-guy riffs, blues soaked vocals and the sort of earthy vibe that suggests men on one hell of a mission. This is soulful blues-rock that defies compartmentalization and conjures up images of packed clubs, sweat soaked walls and determination beyond the call of duty.
Little Caesar is Ron Young (vocals), Loren Molinare and Joey Brasler (guitars), Fidel Paniagua (bass) and Tom Morris (drums).
Look out for European performances later in the year.
