Single Review : Limozine - Tokyo 1970

Limozine | Tokyo 1970 | Single Review

London based rock ’n ’rollers Limozine are set to release their new single Tokyo 1970 November 19th on Beat Atlas records. Their previous three full albums have all been met with great acclaim and their next one You’ve Been Limozined (set for release may 2013,) looks to receive the same warm welcome from the rock ’n’ roll scene.

Tokyo 1970 is two and a half minutes of what is now classic rock. It’s a pastiche of everything that was rock and roll, everything we used to listen to but recorded and released in a day and age that thinks its past all of that. So it is good to see a band still sticking to it and singing the virtues and freedom of rock and roll as it was. What you have within the song is much like you will have heard before; it’s the rock and roll formula. Punky, committed vocals, solid drums and dirty guitar riffs, it’s like a British Ramones all grown up. The track packs some serious punch in its recording and pure attitude and it is a party track through and through. It is however a two minute track of faith. This is a band who play rock and roll to the people who love rock and roll, and you can decide for yourself whether or not you think it is relevant today in comparison with music that is more à la mode. I could list rock ‘n’ roll review buzz words such as ‘sleazy,’ ‘booze-filled’ and ‘Guns n Roses,’ but at the end of the day you just have to listen to it and enjoy it for what it is, two minutes of rock and roll indulgence. I can’t say fairer than that.
