Rocky IV Reckyrd (review)

~ ~

what is The Vinny Club sound well it sounds like Rutger Hauer and Kurt Russell are playing a Commodore 64 in the back of a DeLorean traveling at 88mph. Ferris Bueller's on the roof having a lightsaber fight with Clubber Lang. There's a gremlin chewing on the flux capacitor and a T-800 on the bonnet punching through the windscreen. Bono's driving and so much more.

Rocky IV Reckyrd is a concept album based on Rocky IV (the best rocky film) from The Vinny Club, heres what the press release had to say about The Vinny Club

The Vinny Club is the lovechild of Vinny , bassist in cult Irish band Adebisi Shank. Born out of a dangerous obsession with 8 bit Video games and 80's action movies, his unique brand of synth pop fun will eave you with a boner in your pants and a grin on your face. By the age 11 Vinny had constructed a makeshift recording studio under his bed where he retreated to for hours on end

The album starts off with "Its Not You Its Of"(19833333333333333333) the song i heard at every party last year and it still sounds fresh and even better when your fucked up.For there the album blast off with some track you might have heard off his myspace to some ones you wont all with that sexy cracking beats and funky baselines that is the Vinny club sound , they also have a very complex structure but always keeping that pop element (all songs track in at under 3:30 making them quick fast slices of excellence) that makes you grin and well get a boner just like the press release said. Ive been struggling over this review because i wanted to do the album justice , but i don't think words can convey what this album is like i feel it has to be heard and then you will know my joy(stick). i think the only option of you people is to come to his debut gig in Andrews lane on the 31st of may (its only a tenner and you get the album as well) as see the it for yourself live i will be there dancing up a storm to the chiptune bliss, also on the night will be dj set from super extra bonus party , Foggy Notions and Bats

to wet your appetite i now offer my favorite track off the album Drago's Revenge heres what vinny had to say about the track

so imagine rocky V, except just after rocky n fam move back to the old neighbourhood, drago pulls up in a benz, steps out and punches rocky to death in front of adrian and sage stallone(who shouldn't even have been in that film, like the kid is 6 in rocky IV, rocky V is supposed to be a couple of weeks later, all of a sudden the kids 12 or 13?? anyway), yeah after that he punches the wife and son to death too, but he lets uncle paulie live for some reason(cos he's already dead inside maybe)
