The Latter Day Saints – Coming On Dirty

February 10, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Hailing from the surprisingly un-rock n’ roll area of Romford, Essex (UK) this 3-piece mega-force of testosterone know how to make some massive tunes.

I came across The Latter Day Saints after following them from when they were called Herbie about 6 years ago. Always under the radar, the lack of justice strikes again as this technically and musically talented trio are still scrambling for recognition, with an unlucky history of managers being blacklisted, bankrupt and heavy drug users: they seem to be fighting wave after wave.

But despite all this, there are people who do eventually get to hear of this group and of course like it. One of them being Tom Robinson who played them on his Introducing Show a few times (just after Ten Bears who I wrote about on an earlier post). But another is Pedro Ferreira who produced The Darkness’ ‘Permission to Land’, Stereophonics, and even Colour of Fire who I also mentioned in a previous post. He has volunteered to take on their latest demos and help bring them to the masses.

‘Coming on Dirty’ is one of those tracks, starting with an epic guitar riff, at 00:18 secs, we then hear Tom Scully’s brilliant voice easily sitting on top of the track, sounding like a cross between Sterophonics’ Kelly Jones and Manic Street Preachers’ James Bradfield but with an added tinge of grungy rasp. However, it’s when the track reaches the chorus’ (first heard at 00:54) that we reach its climax – it’s just so huge! Aided by some beefy production, this track is a fine example that this band is a sitting duck of an opportunity for any manager or label. What the hell are you waiting for?

    This is simply great, I loved it! There's this whole grungy feel to his voice and to the riff that is just awesome. My favorite kind of rock, and these guys seem to be ridiculously good – what do you mean they haven't been signed up yet?! Good Lord…And, err… why is poor area of Romford so un-rock n' roll???
