Happy Now (1997)*

Price: $3.99


*Not Accepting This Title

In these days when we're inundated with American alternative rock acts, sometimes it's hard to find anything that really stands out. Loudflower (great name) have managed to create an original sound that sets them apart from the crowd. Mixing harder rock sounds (Clash, Led Zep?) with a horn section (yes, I know it sounds bizarre but it works), this is definitely rock with attitude. Those powerful horns give you an extra kick in the guts with every syncopated stab! You get the insistent pound of ‘Everyone But Me’ which starts with a very Kula Shaker opening before getting down to business. Also on offer, angry high energy ‘Disaffected’ (best anthem for the slacker generation I've heard in ages). ‘Clouds’ rocks out, ‘Saviour Machine’ threatens to engulf you with those huge horns and then after the storm you get the title tune, which is verging on inspirational ‘Whole Of The Moon’ territory. ‘Can't Change Yesterday’ sounds like a pounding Zep riff building into a memorable chorus. ‘Five Minutes After 3’ has an intense brooding feel with rasping Blues Brothers horn effects before exploding into so much more. The band are aiming at the mainstream supporting major acts like Bush and Hootie And The Blowfish as they pay their dues. With this debut album, they deserve to work their way up double quick time. 'Happy Now?' Absolutely! Unusual sound but plenty of energy. - Mike Rimmer
