As LadyJesus haven’t had the whole, moody band photo yet; this photo of them doing, something, will have to do.
Now amazingly, they’re not from Canada,(I know the flag fooled me too) they’re actually a Glaswegian band (Glasgow), with a sweet take on modern Rock n Roll. Or as LadyJesus call it, Cock n Roll. Now until they’d dropped Shotgun Blues last month, I hadn’t really paid that much attention to LadyJesus. They were making good Rock n Roll, but nothing that jumped out at you. Shotgun Blues summarised would be the love-child of Black Sabbath and Miles Kane. It feels modtastic with its Indie Rock friendly starter but once the vocals take place, Sabbath appears, with a true hard faced, fuck everything up Rock sensibility. Plus with its not so discreet chorus of I want to bang baby, it’s a stones throw away from being pure Sabbath.
Their latest track, a cover of Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game, is the reason to start checking this band out. It’s not the love-child of Sabbath and Kane, it’s in a completely different world. The first two minutes or so are guided purely by a lonely bass, the rise of destroyed vocals, accompanied by the very gentle drum play. Once you hit the 2:20 mark, you’re greeted by this completely random guitar solo. But it’s absolutely brilliant. Sliding smoothly from rapid progression to a more maintained riff, it kickstarts Wicked Game tenfold. Once these guys eventually get to a festival, be sure to hear the murmurs of LadyJesus and ‘that song that went mental’, stealing everyone’s festival experience.
Now sadly, Wicked Game isn’t released physically or virtually yet. However, the rest of the bands tracks including Shotgun Blues are all free downloads from their soundcloud!

Rock n Roll that’s set to swoon you, dine you, bed you and never call again.
- When will they release new stuff?
Wicked Game was just released yesterday, so I’d wait another month or so for a new track.
