STEEL PANTHER – Res-erections
If you’re looking for a good dose of self-deprecation, trashy lyrics and big metal riffs, then Steel Panther is for you! For the past ten years, the band has been making a lot of noise and reviving the glam-rock of the 80s in a succession of hilarious looks and hits.
And to believe it, you have to see them on stage. If you’re a fan of fluorescent leggings with anatomical details, long hair and glitter, you’ll love it. And if not, Steel Panther‘s straightforward humor might just sweep you off your feet, between two heartfelt bass lines.
Because the Californians assume and proclaim loud and clear their image of decadent rockers, a kitsch version of the great hours of Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe or Van Halen. What do they want? Nothing less than to find the good old “Sex, Drugs & Rock’n Roll”, a motto they themselves practice with great assiduity. Well, if we believe the verbal jousting that almost serves as an intermission between their songs.
But if their audience laughs as much as they headbang, it would be wrong to reduce the unbearable members of Steel Panther to their status of crowd entertainers. Because if they originally played a lot of covers, they now deliver their own tracks. And when it comes to sending the lyrics and holding the notes, we feel that Michael Starr knows what he is talking about. Between the content and the form, the boys of Los Angeles play the second degree with talent and that makes good!
