The Multi-Coloured Shades

The Lost Tapes (vinyl)

Review by Gary Hill

This new 10-inch vinyl disc is cool. It's on red vinyl and has two songs on each side. That makes it land in the 20-minute range. This is solid hard rock with a healthy helping of punk in the mix. It's cool stuff.

Track by Track Review
Side A

China Doll

I dig the energy and old school punk rock vibe of this cut. It's catchy and very cool.

Highway Love Patrol
This makes me think of Lords of the New Church quite a bit. There is more of a less polished vibe to this cut, though. I dig the guitar solo a lot, but the whole song just plain rocks.
Side B

Stray Dog Love

Now, this feels to me like a cross between the Lords of the New Church and The Cramps. It's great stuff however you slice it.

Boys Of Babylon
I don't really make out any punk rock on this. It's more of a straight ahead riff driven 70s styled rocker. It's classic sound in so many ways.
