Rock is dead. Or so they say.
Get back for the counter-attack!
I was speaking to an ’80s rock star the other day who lamented, “The guitar solo doesn’t exist on radio anymore, unless you listen to the oldies stations.” But Truck don’t care. They’re not worried about what’s “cool” or what’s on the radio. This is classic in every sense of the word.
Hell, there’s even a bass solo.
I fell in love with Truck as soon as I heard one of their early songs, ‘I Need A Miracle’. “Long live rock ’n’ roll,” declared Andy McLean, one of the finest rock singers this country has produced. “It was there when I lost control. Gave me something to hold on to when life was kicking me black and blue … that’s the power of rock ’n’ roll.”
Truck’s debut EP roars to life with the sound of an engine rumbling into action. Then Dave Leslie’s distinctive guitar sets the scene as ‘Make Hay’ picks up where ‘I Need A Miracle’ left off.
No matter what shit is flying your way, a great rock song – and a great rock band – can save you.
Mixed by the legendary Kevin “Caveman” Shirley (Aerosmith, Baby Animals, Cold Chisel, Iron Maiden, Silverchair), this EP is exactly how you want your rock to sound … BIG.
The drums are thundering, the grooves are mighty, and the keys add some explosive colour.
When it’s all said and done, I wanna get me some.
Rock is dead?
No one bothered to tell Truck.
