ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What an upbeat and absolutely fun EP. These songs are awesome, exhibiting a punch, life, and energy that’s mostly absent in today’s music. Thanks to my friend (you know who you are) for talking enough about The Erotics to turn me onto listening to this. Now you should as well- The Meister -Decibel Geek

opening song “Stop Drop and Roll” confirms that The EROTICS still play 80s influenced hard rock’n’roll. “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” is heavy and sleazy with a memorable chorus, “Stuck Between Venus and Mars” is a classic glam metal tune with great guitar riffs, and this time, the band has also decided to slow things down a bit with “Best Song Of The Night”, a power ballad somewhere between GUNS N’ ROSES‘ version of “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” and POISON‘s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” This being said, The EROTICS also keep their punk metal edge and dark humour lyrics with the catchy “Dismember You” and offer us a powerful cover of The MISFITS‘ “Skulls.” This is a great EP, and The EROTICS will be on tour in England soon (see dates below), so don’t miss them if you can go to one of these shows. /Laurent C.-Veglam

It’s always great when the new release by a band you love hits the inbox and over the years The Erotics have been one of those bands that has never disappointed me. Their new EP ‘Stuck between Venus and Mars’ is no exception – it’s six tracks of the Sleaziest most raucous Rock N Roll you could imagine.

We kick off with ‘Stop, Drop and Roll’ a dirty stuttering ditty that builds on a huge riff before Mike Trash’s whiskey-soaked vocal gives a feel of vintage AC/DC to the murky mix. It’s a late-night ‘destroy the neighbors and play it loud’ type of song that is heavier and weightier than recent offerings. All in all spikier, punkier and dirtier than these guys have sounded in a while and a great way to open up the account.

What follows is astounding ‘This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’ is a late night chant-along classic that really makes me think off all those East Coast proto-punk bands of the seventies washed through with the dirty sheen of eighties Rock and Roll revivalists like The Dog’s D’Amour. Mike Trash has always had the knack of landing a huge chorus and this is certainly one of his biggest!

Title track ‘Stuck between Venus and Mars’ is that mid-tempo rocker that’s become a trademark of the Erotics and whilst it lets up the pace a little its full of all the kicks and licks that are the start of any party.

‘The Best Song of the Night’ cruises on in on the back of that fade-out and drops a chill-pill, it’s a song that, dare I say it, has hints of ‘Every Rose has its Thorn’ about it, a cool, bluesy heartfelt ballad that works on every level. It might rather stick out on this release but there’s no disputing its a great song and the other side of Trash’s songwriting.
