Everything’s Go nna Change
Originally formed in Luton during the late 70s, hard rockers High Treason have a chequered career. Recording starting with a promising early single, Saturday Night Special back in 1980. Their first album, Radio Will Find Me was released in 2007 and after a line-up reshuffle their latest, Everything’s Gonna Change has appeared. It’s a hopeful title and with a collection of 11 melodic rock songs, things may well be looking up. This is classy writing with strong performances all round demonstrating real understanding of what makes this genre work. There’s some good dual guitar work from Malcolm Scott and Paul Bailey on the re-recorded Saturday Night Special. There are guest appearances too from Elliott Randall (Steely Dan) on Too Fast and Ben Matthews (Thunder) on Last Name’s Done, which adds an extra dimension. This is good, honest British rock, strong on melody and well-delivered.
