DANKO JONES – Rock n Roll Is Black And Blue



Bad Taste Records (Release Date – Out Now)

Danko Jones and crew are back for album number six and it’s a bit of a cracker. My first introduction to Danko Jones was many years ago at the Download festival when I took shelter from the rain at the second stage. Danko came on and tore the place apart with a highly enjoyable set encompassing blues, hard rock and an ample dose of punk thrown in for good measure.

Fast forward a good few years and he is still producing high quality rock with the punk attitude still very much in evidence. Lyrically we are treated to more tales of loves won and lost all served up with a big dollop of good humour, whilst musically the three-piece produce a huge sound.

This is one of those rare albums that doesn’t contain a duff track. There is plenty of variety on show over the course of the 12 tracks that keeps you wanting more. From the straight forward rock of ‘Terrified’, the slow, heavy blues of ‘Legs’  and the AC/DC influenced riff of ‘Always Away’ there is something for everyone here and it’s all top quality stuff.

Danko Jones has produced an excellent album that I would highly recommend, must catch him live again very soon
