Hard Wax – Diamond In The Rough (Rebellion/ Contra)

Dig out your denims and strap on those platform boots, Hard Wax want you to let your hair down, forget your troubles, grab your partner by the hand and let fly on the dancefloor. Glam rock stomping is what it’s all about and Hard Wax are all about bringing those big tunes back. Of course the glam revival has been gaining popularity for some time now and the popularity of bands such as Guida, Faz Waltz and Shandy is helping more bands gain attention. Hard Wax are inspired by the usual culprits but they have a tougher sound with snarling snotty vocals, not surprising considering that the band was put together by Tom Boutwood who is already active in bands such as Arch Rivals and Hostile Minds. There are some great hard rocking moments in songs such as Bringing Back The Noise or the stomping In The Know. No great surprises on here, Hard Wax have got the glam style down to a tee and with enough character of their own to make their style stand out. Put your boots on, stamp your feet and boogie on down to the Boot Boy Stomp. Tom Chapman
