“Not Here to Play” by the Angeles - Review

Hej America!

Today my friends at Bongo Boy sent me a single to review. The song is called Not Here to Play and the band is known as ANGELES. Before I even read the bio about these guys I cued up the sound file and took a look at their press photo. To say that I felt as though I had stepped into a time machine is an understatement. These guys look like a cross between Mötley Crüe and Black Sabbath circa 1982, when Dio was singing for Sabbath. Why does this matter at all? Because, Rock and Roll is performance art. A band’s look is sometimes as important as a band’s sound. Who thinks of Alice Cooper without thinking of that snake? Who thinks of Ozzy without thinking of that bat? ANGELES have a definite second generation classic rock look about them.

Then I hit play on my music player and BOOM I was back in 1982. These guys have the same sound that blasted through the high school smoking area as various substances were smoked. (Yes, kids a long time ago students were allowed to smoke in school, but only in a designated area which descended into a decadent hedonistic party every lunch hour.) Arguments would break out over who was king, Randy Rhoads or Eddie Van Halen The music by the ANGELES would have fit right in. This song is loud, features a blistering guitar solo and a heavy hook reminiscent of the early 80s hard rock. I would be stunned if their drummer didn’t spin his sticks.

When I did read their bio I was hardly surprised to read that they have shared the stage with the likes of Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, Quiet Riot, Ronnie James Dio, Ratt, Guns n Roses, Metallica, Foghat, Michael Schenker, Dokken, L.A Guns, Jack Russell's Great White, Ron Bushy from Iron Butterfly, The Tubes, Faster Pussycat, Edgar Winter and Jefferson Starship That is quite a list of people to have played shows with.

Overall, this song is a rather nostalgic sonic blast. People who were around in the early 80s will recognize the groove and for people younger, this is the music that coined the phrase Head Banging. Rock on guys, rock on!
