THE MOTHER ROCKERS – Kobra (2022)

PUBLISHED JANUARY 2022

 

THE MOTHER ROCKERS - Kobra (2022) full
 

The funnily named THE MOTHER ROCKERS ’80s-inspired glam rock band from Quebec City are releasing their debut album “Kobra“, a 10-tracker recreating the sound & style of the Sunset Strip glory days.

There’s a lot of bands right now doing this kind of revival, and two type of them: the ones whom take seriously this genre as the music of their life, and the ones aiming for fun, parody, presenting a complete show including costumes, fireworks, et all. Since their name, you know THE MOTHER ROCKERS belongs to the latter.

However, and while lyrics are ridiculous, laughlable on purpose, and the guitarist looks like Ben Stiller in Zoolander wearing a wig (check video below), musically THE MOTHER ROCKERS are very good at their glam metal / sleazy / hair metal game.

Yeah, Steel Panther have been doing this for over a decade, well, THE MOTHER ROCKERS are the Canadian’s answer. And the guys are good at it.

All cliches are here, from the flashy cover art (which is darn good by the way) or the album title, the the Parental Advisory sticker. And then the guitar riffs / solos, the melodic refrains and the catchy choruses. All complete with cowbell et all.

“Kobra” is entertaining, catchy, and very, very fun. It’s all about a good time and put a smile on your face. And worth it.

Highly Recommended

01 – I Can’t Wait

Curious to hear what Glen and Geoff think of this.

Not fit to lace Steel Panthers boots I'm afraid.

Look, musically this is spot on but there are 2 glaring issues imo :

1. The vocalist is pretty weak (and accented?)

2. It's not funny

Well She's Got a Dick raised a wry smile but that was it.

What this does make you realise though is how amazingly awesome Steel Panther were at the height of their powers. Its not easy to write this stuff and make it work and be lol funny without coming across as crude. 

Just think songs like Asian Hooker, Tiger Woods, Tomorrow Night, I want your Tits, Bukkake Tears etc are just classic and unbeatable imo.

Pretty much agree. Music is pretty good but aside from a few lines, just not that funny or creative. 

And yes, the vocalist is the weak link.

  • 2 weeks later...

Ordered their CD a week or so ago and got it this morning. So used to paying upwards of $20 US in postage to the UK these days that I was amazed they only charged me $20 Can for the CD and postage together (thats about $15.50 US) .. crazy how countries so close to each other can be so far apart in postage costs.

That said, it's getting ridiculously expensive just ordering from European countries since the whole Brexit bullshit as well, with some of them charging £10+ for what used to be around £5 max).

 

All the same, still impressed with the price these guys charged.

    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.

    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
