Album Notes
Established since 1986, the band started to play heavy metal music under the name GeNOcide and recorded 1 Mini LP & 2 CDS. In 1995 as the music was going in the direction of Australia (AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Rhino Buckett), they decided that it was time get a new name SIDEBURN.

Since that, 4 CDS have been recorded and they have played over 300 gigs in Switzerland & Europe, including opening act with top artists such as: KISS, DEF LEPPARD, MOTORHEAD, ROSE TATTOO, DIO, TED NUGENT, KROKUS, THIN LIZZY, MEAT LOAF, GOTTHARD, SLADE, DORO and more....

Rocks from start to finish. Not a song on this cd that I skip like with most. So glad they finally released an album in the US...waiting on more.


That smells like the greatest rock bands from Australia !
Sideburn is a band from Switzerland, it exits since a long time and used to be called Genocide at the start.
Just for the record Sideburn used to play as opener for Kiss at the Hallenstadium, the biggest hall in Switzerland!!! The album was recorded, produced and mixed by Jürg Naegeli which used to work with Krokus. As you can see Switzerland is not big and for sure a small world... So what to say about good old time rock'n'roll from Switzerland, in fact not cheesy at all ;-). This one of the kind that smells like the greatest rock bands from Australia alike Rose Tattoo, AC/DC or The Angels (ex Angel City) or even Jimmy Barnes. In fact the title Crocodile is maybe on itself a big dedication to the land of Crocodile Dundee.
They also can be compared to southern rock stars like ZZ Top or even Blackfoot. But I would say Sideburn developed its own style since it not called Genocide anymore. They became like an old Whisky bottle getting better with the years by founding their own flavor.
One mention about the cover of Remedy from Rose Tattoo it is brilliant : respect ! These guys should have recorded one song for the Tatt's tribute album Tribute For The Boys, I wouldn't have been angry at all....
There is nothing new under the southern sun (maybe a sunburn on the side ;-)) but for sure it is damn well done. Sideburn is settled like a Swiss cuckoo clock. If you like this kind of rock'n'roll without any compromise then just go for it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Killing Songs : Hell On Wheels, Hole Creeper, Crocodile, Remedy, Live 4 2 Day, In My Car, Rocking Chair, The Taker, Slave To The Core, Renegade

Get your rocks off on this one!
I reckon Mick and Keith got it right when they sang "It's only rock n roll, but I like it!". I reckon you guys got it just as right when you recorded this disc. Excellent, excellent hard, in your face, balls to the wall, take no prisoners rockers, each and every track. Love your work guys - don't stop rockin' ... in the free world or anywhere else! I rate your tunes up there with the best of AC/DC, Ted Nugent, Accept, Motorhead, Dead End Jayne, MAD, MOD, Angry, Airbourne and the Tatts.


Great music from great band
I first heard of Sideburn on CDbaby as i was looking for ZZ-Top - AC/DC like bands. They are great! I purchased two of their albums as they are great to listen at. Rock in its mightiest roar when the guitars start to play and with no compromises! Who said that only the big labels have the music???

This CD is truely an "ASS KICKER"
Holy Shit!!!! I threw in the "Crocodile" CD last night driving home for the first time. What great driving music. I got the chills from the very first note to the last note. It brought back memories the first time I listened to AC/DC. I
remember it like it was yesterday. I took out the album (remember...vinyl)"Powerage" from the Smithtown Library in Smithtown, New York. "Crocodile" caused the hairs on my neck to stand up. This CD is truely an "ASS KICKER".

The reason why I choose "Crocodile" first, was because I seen that you guyz did a version of Rose Tattoo's "Remedy". I salute SIDEBURN for doing a faithful &
amazing version. Rose Tattoo was one of those bands with killers songs, but NO airplay. The album "Rock 'N' Roll Outlaws" is a must have in any true Rock & Roll collection.

You should have named the CD "No Fillers". Not trying to kiss your ass, but EVERY song kills!!!

I can't wait to listen too the other tewo CD's. Thankz sooooooo much for sending us your bands tunes. I plan on getting a SIDEBURN song on the station beginning
this Saturday. And, have that song in our rotation. GREAT STUFF!!!

Please let me know if & when SIDEBURN comes State-side.


Pay attention to these guys, especially if you dig it in the AC/DC/Rhino Bucket
Not being very informed on Sideburn, I was plenty curious when contacted just what these guys were about. The name is definitely not a dead giveaway of what you can expect from these guys. Upon listening, the first thing that comes to mind is the bands Sideburn reminds me of. They seem to be a conglomeration of Rhino Bucket, AC/DC and maybe a bit of The Four Horseman. The band definitely has their own identity though with only hints of those bands spattered here and there on the album. The music is definitely blues influenced with great attitude. The band actually isn't new and dates back to the 80's under the name Genocide. After a few albums the band is now releasing under Sideburn and is really making a name playing the style that 'Crocodile' delivers. The music is no BS to the roots of rock 'n roll music. Take a listen to the title track and you'll get the point. Some of my particular favorites on the album include the groove rocker 'Hell on wheels', 'Midnight woman', the very spunky 'Remedy', 'In my car', the catchy 'Rocking chair'. If you don't at least tap your toes to 'Rocking chair' then you may have lost some motor functions. I also dig the closer 'Renegade' for it's all around good vibe.

I was always a big fan of the style of Rock. No nonsense and to the point. Nothing to flashy, but catchy nonetheless. With so many bands out there, bands like Sideburn definitely deserve to be heard, but are sometimes not. I'm telling you to pay attention to these guys, especially if you dig it in the AC/DC/Rhino Bucket vein. It's no wonder why these guys are one of Switzerland's best exports. They get the job done in great Fashion. Nice job guys!

The album Crocodile features an array of 12 stand out tracks, which are a must h
What a rocking album I have selected as this weeks review boys and girls. The bands name is Sideburn and they are a European sensation. Now with influences such as Aussie hard rockers AC/DC and Rose Tattoo you are bound to be getting a great sounding, kick – arse album.

The album Crocodile features an array of 12 stand out tracks, which are a must have for any ones CD collection.

The first track that comes to mind when someone mentions the name Sideburn is the first song off the album “Hell On Wheels”. To me it sums up rock n roll, simply by its first line “You know I was born an outlaw, Leader in my own gang, I don’t give a damn about school, Im the singer of the band”. And if you think this one is a killer then wait to you hear the rest of the song. It’s outstanding in every way possible.

Track 3, “Crocodile” would have to be one of the catchier songs on the album and one of the catchiest songs that I have ever heard from any band in its kind. Its a feel good song that will get you on the floor bouncing away.

“Midnight Woman” is a little bit slower and a little bit bluesy but I can still see all the guys loving this one. A very sexy song about about every guys fantasy “a good time girl”

Midway through the album features a cover song formerly done by one of the boy’s biggest influences Rose Tattoo. The song is titled “Remedy” and fits in nicely with the style of music these guys produce. I know a lot of people don’t like to here songs covered by other bands, but I for one love this version.

“Live 4 Today” is next and this album truly gets better and better as the songs roll on. I am. I have been fortunate enough to be able to review stunning albums and this one is no exception. This song is close to my favourite song, but not quite. Fred’s vocals are amazing and the whole band fits in nicely together.

“The Taker” takes the band to new levels of brilliance. Its song writing at its finest. This song like most songs on the album sounds very tight and very well mixed. They key to a great album is song choice and Sideburn have just about hit the nail on the head with this one.

Finishing off the album are the songs “Slave to the Core” and “Renegade”. To sum things up in a nutshell, it’s the perfect end to a perfect album. I have had a ball listening to this album over and over again writing this review.

Through out all the changes the band has had with its line up it looks like the future for Sideburn is bright.

I hope everyone will get out there and show your love to the boys and tell them I said HI!
