Mad Rollers - "I Need Your Love"
Sometimes all you need is some really good rock and roll! Rome's Mad Rollers have released their latest single - a follow-up to their 2017 debut on Surfin' Ki Records. These guys keep it classic with an awesome mix of pub rock, glam, and proto punk. They aren't aiming to break any new ground, and why would you want 'em to? "I Need Your Love" is an upbeat, catchy rocker with big hooks and some absolutely smoking lead guitar. Mad Rollers cite Eddie and the Hot Rods and Slade as influences, and that definitely comes through in the music. Throw in some early Cock Sparrer, and you'll know exactly what sort of soup these guys are cooking. This is your soundtrack to a night of drinking and dancing and all those other fine things in life. B-side "Did You See" is in a similar vein but with a little nastier edge to it. All in all, this is a top-notch single. Label it however you want - in the end, it's just damn good rock and roll. Vinyl out on Sister Raygun Records out of Philadelphia, USA!
