Some claim Suzi is the “Queen of Rock & Roll” but for me, that just doesn’t cover it. Suzi is TOTAL ROCK & ROLL! She stands alongside Lemmy, at the top of the pile, influencing all the people that influenced your favourite bands.

It seems almost crass to remind you of Ms. Quatro’s history. Not only are there the great singles like ‘Can The Can’, ‘48 Crash’ and ‘Devil Gate Drive’, but there’s also been 17 studio over the last five (yeah FIVE !!!) decades and of course there was her heart mangling role as Leather Tuscadero in the classic TV series Happy Days. As a matter of fact, I was innocently sporting my Suzi shirt on the KissKruise last year when bloke after bloke after bloke stopped me share their Suzi love. See, not all Kiss fans are bellends.

Anyway, enough of the bull and on with the show…

No Soul/No Control is a dirty rock revelation. It’s kind of L7 to be honest, with a bit of Foo Fighters thrown in for good measure and it’s a banger!!! Going Home is grinding blues, with than a hint Joan Jett – probably owing more to Suzi’s influence on Ms. Jett than the other way around.

First single,  Macho Man is pure Deep Purple and probably my favourite track on the album. A guaranteed future live favourite, sure to take centre stage amongst the Quatro classics. 

Easy Pickings has that kind of sleazy shuffle favoured by Mr. David Lee Roth and is another great slab of rock& roll.

Don’t Do Me Wrong takes you back to the land of the dirty blues, while  I Can Teach You To Fly has a badass Neil Diamond vibe to it that drags you right back to the sixties and won’t let go.

Suzi is non-stop and not stopping. As she rightly says, “I’ll retire when I go onstage, shake my ass and there is silence” and I’m not holding my breath for that moment!

No Control is released on March 29th, 2019  on CD along with a super sexy double LP on yellow with black swirly vinyl (complete with a couple of extra tracks and free CD version).
