Platinum Overdose – Murder In High Heels

Retro radio rock ’n’ roll is the only way to describe ‘Murder In High Heels’. If you’re a fan of sun drenched cruising, silk shirt unbuttoned then these late 80’s well groomed rockers are a must for you. We’re talking the vocal pitch and lyric styling of Firehouse and Warrant with an immaculate diamante covered kick of Ratt, something that’s maybe not surprising with rhythm guitar being taken care of by Matt Thorr ex Stephen Pearcy. The opening track immediately raised a smile, ‘Pretty & Punk’ has to be one of the oddest track titles this particular band could have chosen, they may well be pretty who’s to say, but PUNK! Most definitely not! The rest of the album’s much more fitting ‘Young And Wild’, ‘By Bye Baby, ‘Need Your Love’ and alike, but hey it raised a giggle here! This albums not going to break any barriers, it doesn’t light a fire under your ass, nor does fill your veins with stinging adrenaline, but it WILL be spun again and again by those die hard rockers that just can’t shake that late 80’s monkey on their back. The album’s well produced, the protagonists are well seasoned pros who know exactly what’s needed like the back of their guitar case, but it is what it is, retro radio rock that you either dig or deplore – we’ll let you choose…
