ELECTRIC GLITTER BOOGIE, BABY




Listen to the title track 

SOMETHING YOU JUST CAN NOT CONTROL
The appeal of Power is the spontaneous brilliance of live Australian hard rock music. The heat from relentless live performance in the greasy confines of the inner city pub was strong in the 70’s circuit, and the debut LPs of many of Australia’s greatest bands are the testimony of many late nights twitching and sweating it out.
Troglodyte rock music and inner city Melbourne have always made sense. Every week there have been bands playing fast and loose. Last year, Power was this band, and immediately earned comparison to Melbourne’s Coloured Balls, sharing that edge of menace in their affection for boogie rock and the same air of familiarity with aforementioned greasy confines.
2014 was the year Power stepped up, and hosted their own weekly residency in this city, kicking through backyard parties and seemingly hundreds of Tote shows with the collection of songs they recorded at the right moment and turned into this LP.
The result has the savage drive of their live sound, the bolts tightened to threadbare, and is carried by that supreme confidence and determination any band gets when they know what they are doing and can relax and let the songs happen when they need to, and when the songs need it, they know when to kick it hard. This kind of confidence is intoxicating to exalt in. Living in the age of power.
The sound is raw but full, the band recorded the songs live with minimal overdubs, and the songs continually disintegrate into white heat guitar noise before slamming back into manic amphetamine lockstep. In 8 songs, they traverse an entire history of hard rock, electric glitter boogie, thug glam, raw power punk. Strong character. Definite purpose. Something you just can not control.
