Champagne & Pills 7 Inch - Mustang

Label:Full Toss Records Records (Australia)
Released:2000
Tracks:Champagne & Pills
Huge Woman Reducer
Canít Get Off


Rating: 4/5

Judging by this 7 Inch, Mustang are the best band to come out of Tasmania since the Philistines. The title track, Champagne & Pills is a cool mixture of Ramones punk and New York Dolls glam trash, with some ever so cool backing vocals. The two tracks on the flipside, Huge Woman Reducer (which sounds like a re-write of the Dead Boyís classic Sonic Reducer) and Canít Get Enough rock even harder and show the influence of more recent bands like the Hellacopters. This 7 Inch just goes to show that there still are good young and up & coming Australian bands out there who remember how to play rock Ďní roll and sound like they enjoy it.
