Pink Cream 69
a dozen albums into what is now a 30-year career, german band Pink cream 69 still struggle to clamber out of the drawer marked ‘cult heroes’
– on this side of the channel, at least.
Their colourful mix of hard rock, power metal and hook-friendly aor has changed little since the arrival of Burnley-born lead singer David readman as co-founder andi Deris’s replacement way back in 1994. readman’s delivery is powerful, rich and downright melodious, complementing the boisterously addictive choruses of Bloodsucker, no more Fear and the ballads man of sorrow and Vagrant of The night.
The long-term presence of bass player Dennis Ward as Pink cream 69’s in-house producer has been another massive bonus, and with this album the Texan – fast becoming the finest juggler of melodic hard rock with harder elements – has once again applied the midas touch.
initial quantities of Headstrong include a bonus live album recorded in ludwigsburg back in 2013.
come on in, there’s never been a better time to see what the fuss is about.
