THE LOVE JUNKIES REVIEW

There’s certainly no shortage of rock bands these days deliberately eschewing any sense of musicality (it’s criminally un-hip to be virtuosic) or musical experimentation, preferring instead the ‘‘ bunch of mates ... playing rock’n’roll , having a few beers’ ’ tag. Occasionally, however, one of these groups rises above this level of mediocrity and realises that in order to stand out it doesn’t hurt to bring a healthy dose of pop to the rock proceedings; a catchy hook, a memorable vocal refrain, a decent repeating riff. Perthbased Love Junkies have done just that with debut LP Maybelene, a short rip through pop-infused , brutal riffage that’s not afraid to stick in your head long after the final note has embedded itself in the sticky carpet. Single Oxymoron and Baby, Come Home prove the Love Junkies are masters at this, which bodes well for both rock’n’roll and Australian music in general.
