Great Heat – Laid Bare

The first thing that struck me about Great Heat’s debut track “Laid Bare”,  is actually the cover. Strikingly close to David Bowie’s upcoming presumed album cover for The Next Day. It’s kind of puzzling but probably nothing more than a coincidence. Soundwise, Bowie might not be the most fitting way to describe “Laid Bare”. More appropriatly, think of The Chameleons trying to cover Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love” and you might get the picture. They sure know their rock ‘n roll history, incorporating a diverse set of genres scattered across time and space; blues, new wave, psychedelic rock, garage rock etcetera. It doesn’t sound very contemporary nore does it have to and besides, it hardly matters since the quartet out of a converted dairy factory in South London’s Battersea, delivers one hell of an industrial experience.
