It seems every country in the European Union has band like them: enter France's Sticky Boys and their debut disc This Is Rock N Roll.
And it certainly is. Sticky Boys deliver no frills, beer party, hard rock in the boogie style of AC/DC. But they only need three dudes to pull it off. They have a juggernaut of riffs, rumbling rhythm section, and ripping leads to keep your fist pumping and your toes tapping.
And you can tell they're having a whole lot of fun doing it, too. Next to the boogie rock, the main theme here is simply that life is one big rock n roll party. You get this from Rock n Roll Nation to Bang That Heard to The Way to Rock N Roll. The chicks get some interest here and there, but mostly in Girls in the City. Generally, This Is Rock N Roll is crotch rock, music for the boys and and a keg of beer. If the girls show up consider them lucky, the boys that is. Recommended.
