Now this is what sleaze rock is all about! Backwash has taken cues from the likes of AC/DC, The Four Horsemen and Beautiful Creatures to release a debut EP that should restore everyone’s faith in rock’n’roll. The music is just as dirty and nasty as the band name implies, and not only do they Feel Rock – they proceed to hammer it down your throat!

  “Highroller’ starts off with a shit-kicking backbeat that leads into a raunchy riff reminiscent of Junkyard. I haven’t had a song impress me this much since I reviewed Stampede Queen awhile back. “Kill Thrill” is an over-the-top number that is unrelenting in its delivery. The EP wraps up with “I’ve Done It”, another song with a barroom boogie bottom-end overlapped with gritty vocals.

  Backwash is showing other young upstarts – and even seasoned professionals – how rock should be played. I can’t wait to hear a full-length album, but in the meantime this EP and their website ( will have to do. If anyone tells you rock is dead, crank this up and tell them to fuck off.
