Bodinrocker – Eye To Eye

Pretty much summed up in having a track titled That Old Twelve-Bar, the Swedish rock outfit fronted by Anders Bodin veers vetween basic riff and ready head-nodding and swagger stuff  in the tradition of AC/DC and the pop-infected boogie of  Vacation and Rollercoaster Ride are clearly pitched at Nordic Quo fans,. Bodin has a somewhat thin, reedy vocal sound that feels a bit lightweight in contrast to the guitars and drums, but they know their way round a catchy melody and the likes of Brown Bear, the Who-inflected Life’s Not Fair and  Got No Time with its echoes of the late 60s Brit poprock of The Move are all very listenable. MD–the-beat/record-reviews-september-2.html
