COMIN' IN HOT by Tailgun
(Tailgun Music)

Sin City rockers, Tailgun make one hell of a first impression with their debut release. 'Comin' In Hot'. 10 seconds into the lead off track,  "Ass, Grass Or Cash" and I was hooked!  I was blown away by the energy.  The band is comprised of, Dru Jaxin on vocals, Rob E.G. on lead guitar, Larry Kelly on guitar, Cory Kay on bass and Mike Mitlyng on drums. The best way to describe this album is what may happen if science could mutate the genes of AC/DC, Motorhead and Aerosmith all into one new being, then add a shot of Nashville Pussy just for good measure. There is not a dull moment on this entire album. Highlights include, the title track, "Golddiger", "Pocket Change", "Cherry Bomber" and "Raise Some Hell".  Just great rock and roll in an old school, no-frills hard rock vibe.  There are no surprises here. You buy a record from a rock band llike Tailgun because you're looking for some high octane party rock songs about drinking, women, rocking and maybe drinking and rocking with women.  It's a shame music like this is ignored by mainstream radio, because the modern rock stations could use some reminding that not everything has to sound like Coldplay and Nickelback. Fortunately there are bands like Tailgun that keep the classic rock vibe alive and keep rock n' roll fun. The band has somehow managed to create an album of this nature without absurd lyrics and without sounding like a bunch of foul-mouthed teenagers, and yet it is still enough fun to add life to any party. If you are a fan of basically any type of rock from the 80's and early 90's, with some 70's classic rock leanings, this is a band you should check out. Highly Recommended
