Over the years guitar slinger Neal X has done some pretty impressive work with a wide range of artist but he's mainly remember for his band Sigue Sigue Sputnik.You could say that was a band you either really liked or had no use for, either way Neal X's newest project is The Montecristos and they will diffidently be a pleasant surprise for most.Since late 2012 the outfit has managed to not only creating a buzz but also a rep as a damn good band.Hell the bass slapper is Emma Goss(The Daytonas,Something Shocking, The Griswald and more) so you just know this is a stout outfit.The band's debut album, "Born To Rock N Roll" is one album you should check out.Clocking in with 14 tracks of real rock n roll that's fun, sexy and infectious.This is 50's inspired rock n roll that's driven by a horn section with rockabilly, glam and surf all thrown into the mix.We get a kool mix of covers and originals as well as 3 Sigue Sigue Sputnik songs that totally come off as vital and fresh.Highlights include: " Badfinger Twang", "Dirty Little Lowlife", " Born To Rock N Roll" and " Love Missile F1-11"
The Montecristos are a band that has benefited greatly from word of mouth and rightfully so."Born To Rock 'n' Roll" is a direct result of a hugely successful Kick starter campaign .This is a strong and surprisingly very good album by a band that's looking to kick some rock 'n' roll butt.
