Review: The Senti-Mentals’ ‘You Show Me Yours At Xmas’

The Senti-Mentals is the musical incarnation of Paul Eccentric, formerly of The Odd Eccentric and The Antipoet, and John Dobinson who have come together to form a doo-wop/ rock’n’roll inspired duo.

Their latest track ‘You Show Me Yours At Xmas’ is an alternative take on the Christmas song, throwing in a bit of comedy all for good measure.

The humorous track mixed by Pete Hammond was originally about the ridiculousness of the ‘chatting up’ process but the duo soon realised it fitted perfectly with the environment of the office Christmas party.

One thing that can certainly be said is that there are no Christmas songs quite like ‘You Show Me Yours At Xmas’. There is a definite 50’s vibe stemming from the doo-wop and rock’n’roll influences but at the same time, there is a bouncy, almost ska-esque quality to the track as well. As a result, the song would be a perfect get-up-and-dance number for the Christmas party once everyone’s had a few drinks.

Eccentric’s vocals are pure and crooning, typical of the 50s influence and befitting of the song’s cheeky, in your face style.

Along with the track is a hilarious animated video that follows the exploits of that one guy from the office who tries to pull anything with a pulse at the Christmas party. The duo describe it as that ‘guy from accounts who assumes that every lady in the office wants to go home with him but he couldn’t be further from the truth’.

The combination of the comedic video and the unique 50s style of the track make for a truly original perspective on the Christmas period that is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.

Rockstar Frame join the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Mafia’ with new album

Full length album set for arrival on May 11th, including single ‘She’s Hot’

 

A Milan five piece whose spontaneous approach to songwriting lends their heavy rock style a frenzied energy, Rockstar Frame are a band who are going places.

With a sound which follows naturally on from the likes of Guns ‘n’ Roses and Aerosmith, only with the powerful female vocals of Faith Blurry, they are already turning heads in their home country having won the national ‘Rock the Road Contest’. Competing against 70 hand-picked bands from across the country Rockstar Frame came out on top thanks to their killer songs and great live show.

Their new album, ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Mafia’ drops on May 11th, and includes the single ‘She’s Hot’:

 

 

Rockstar Frame have an origin story like no other. The band was started when founder Max was in a coma after falling from cliff. His family played him rock music while he was unconscious, and he woke with the belief that the music helped to bring him back – inspiring him to write his own.

From there, the band was formed, and has been growing ever since – only set to get even bigger with the arrival of the new album and the help of a growing fanbase.

That fanbase will, in fact, have the opportunity to pick up a free copy of the new album. The album launch gig – date to be confirmed soon – will see 20 free CDs on offer for the first 20 who come dressed as an old school ‘gangster’ to join the Rock ‘n’ Roll Mafia and get into the spirit of the evening.

The show, like the album, is set to be a blinder. ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Mafia’ is released on May 11th.

Wings of Pegasus soar with new rock track ‘That’s Metal (To My Ears)’

  • Single from debut album ‘Persistence’ out May 10th
  • Raising money for Cancer Research UK through the ‘Make Chart History’ Campaign 

Hard rock with an 80s twist inspired by the likes of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Aerosmith, Dokken and more, Wings of Pegasus are a rock band with a big sound and a fresh approach to the music industry. With new single ‘That’s Metal (To My Ears)’ due in May, the band are running a campaign called ‘Make Chart History’, aiming to take the independent release to the very top of the charts, all the while donating the proceeds to Cancer Research UK.

Hoping to whip up a groundswell of support, songwriter Fil Henley is working hard to spread the word on the campaign as well as the single itself – an independently produced homage to old 80’s bands with big hair and screeching guitar solos. Designed to encourage listeners to dust off the air guitar, it’s great fun and the most light hearted track on the ‘Persistence’ album, which is out now.

The hard work is also typified by Fil Henley’s dedication to conversing personally with all the fans on Twitter, and with the number of followers standing at over 50,000, that’s a lot of messages! It doesn’t hurt that the band have the talent to back up the graft, as proven by their appearance in the final of the ‘Unsigned Festival 2010’ at the IndigO2 venue. Finishing 3rd out of 12,000 bands, it was a huge boost to the group who haven’t looked back since.
