Love Cream - First Taste


Recommended Posts



Good stuff!


From Reverbnation:


"In a time where the golden age of rock is a thing of the past and acoustic-wielding, cardigan-clad, non-prescription spectacles wearing folk men & women dominate the guitar-based music scene, Love Cream ascend to right wrongs and return all things ballsy back to music.


Love Cream formed fresh from High-School, still under the time-consuming clutches of Year 12. The idea behind the band was to create an uprising for the Rock music scene; to kick out the computers, and bring back the real bloody-sweaty energy. Having minimal musical ability behind them- aside from Nick Robinson (Lead guitarist), they took to the shed what would either be the beginning of something terribly wrong, or profusely great.


After developing their sound and niche, they made their act public with their debut gig at the “Burnside Battle of the Bands 2011”. After a 20 minute set of originals with titles like ”She’s a Smokin’ Bitch”, “Hung In Hong Kong” and “Hot In The Dark”, it was clear to the audience and judges that The Creams’ heavy hitting riffs and to-the-point lyrics were worth nothing less than grand ovation, and were awarded first place.


That was the starting point of the bands amassing success. Later in the year they won a top prize from national web-comp “My School Act”. This prize placed them on one of the main stages for their own set in the 2012 Adelaide ‘Big Day Out’. Since then, they have developed an ever-growing cult following around Adelaide, while rocking various venues and shows such as “Carclew Youth Arts’ off the Couch 2012” – held at Jive; “Glam Junkie’s Sleeze Ball” – held at the Cavern; and the “MONSTERS OF (local) ROCK festival” at the Adelaide Uni-Bar.


However, undoubtedly their most rewarding venture was closer to the end of 2012- the debut year of Love Cream. After entering local talent competition ‘Adelaide’s Next Superstar’ on a laughable whim (due to feeling their approach to showmanship just wasn’t ‘right’ for the competition), they were surprised when the entire event (including the judges) fell into a crazed uproar of appreciation.


Halfway through recording their debut E.P. “First Taste” in Queensland with musical prodigy Casey Jones (Of De La Cruz fame), Love Cream had to fly back to Adelaide to compete in the grand final event of Adelaide’s Next Superstar, held to a crowd of +1000 at the Entertainment Centre. Needless to say, the band claimed first place in the band category. That’s when the future of the band changed…


Love Cream are no longer looking to release a 5 track debut E.P.. With the first place prize from the competition, the band are now releasing an additional 5 tracks to form a full length album to be released as the grand-unveiling of their master-plan; To bring back the balls to rock."

I love these guys. Not to everyone's taste. A bit of steel panther about them but not as crass. Haven't heard this disc yet...

... with a song called 'Back Door Lover'? :shocked:




Seriously though, quite good songs, just not outstanding imo. 'BDL' is pretty poor, but 'Love Train' and 'Spend The Night Together' are both okay. Probably wouldn't rush out and buy this though.

That is nice.


They appear to have hung up there spurs as of Thursday:


This is the end of Love Cream, its namesake shall live on inside all of us, occasionally leaving us in times of inspiration but will always be quick to return. In the same vein, this is not the end for the moving parts of Love Cream; some of us have been looking to the future and working together on our next big project, which will cum later, and some of us are pursuing more personal goals. We hope that you stay in touch and wish us well in our future endeavours, whether together or apart.
Jokes aside, we would like to thank all of our fans, anybody who came out to see us, bought an album, repped a t-shirt or supported us at all along the way. We've had an absolute blast, and we look forward to whats coming next. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all.
We'd like to have one last hurrah and host a farewell gig so we can party together one last time, and give anybody that's ever been on the fence or curious about seeing us live one last chance to be creamed. We'll keep you updated with details on this as they come.
We will also be releasing the video of our full show at Taubertal in Germany soon. Message us if you want an early screening ;)
Goodnight and Sweet Creams,
Warmest Regards,
Yours forever in memory,
Vinnie, Nick, Gallo, Jim and Marc

    • Same for me.  I thought the first single was decent but nothing else grabbed me. 
    • New lyric video for 'Save Us From Ourselves'.    
    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New video for 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-
