San Francisco is a place of many cultures, a variety of lifestyles and the home of Alcatraz and ‘Dirty Harry,’ the perfect setting for the shocking induction of a new band, called Miss Crazy. The mystique of white painted faces, the sounds that will drive fans wild hinting at some of the great hard rock acts like AC/DC, Cinderella, Kiss and Kix will raise the red flag on a new age of rock.
I have not been this excited about a new band since Crashdiet. Miss Crazy will make you an instant fan right from the very first track “No Compromise”. It starts off with ‘Oh We Oh’ chants then bursting into an anthem style tune that just send chills down your spine. There’s gotta be something wrong with you if you don’t like this song. It has every element to be a classic with ripping guitar work by B.B. Michaels and Manfred Swann vocals by Markus Allen Christopher that explode. Markus vocals tear it up with a style that has been missing from rock music since the 80’s. His vocals are comparable to the styles of Brian Johnson (AC/DC), Tom Kiefer (Cinderella) and Steve Whiteman (Kix) to mention a few, and the range he possess is top-notch.
Don’t let their image distract you from the music; Miss Crazy is a musical force, not the fly by night picture gallery. I know when you reach “You’re Blue” you will say that is just a rip off of Cinderella’s “Nobody's Fool” but wait, the inspiration maybe there, but Miss Crazy takes that influence and creates a different animal… creating arrangements and a totally different breakdown in the riffs which to me makes it a pulsating tune.
“So Long” is another song that has the traditional sound that Kiss possessed back in the late seventies. It might be basic but remember the first Kiss album launched many top rockers in their careers when they tried imitating it. Now is the time to get this CD because it will be in a lot of collections once Miss Crazy plays Cruefest on July 15, 2006. Start your collection NOW because I can only see big, big things ahead for Miss Crazy.
