Cocksure is the new album from the New York based singer/songwriter Laura Stevenson. Liz Phair, The Replacements and The Lemonheads influence her. The songs on her album are rather short, but overall it is a very diverse record and an actually pretty good sounding album. Vocally it reminds me of Belinda Carlisle meets The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs. Musically speaking it is 80s meets 90s alternative rock based, sounding similar to The Pretenders meets Stevie Nicks meets Patti Smith. It is her 4th record, so she has been in the music business for quite a while now.
We are ticking along, and any mistakes that get made are ours. We don’t like finger pointing and we hate getting angry at people and”You have messed up our career”We are more than happy to mess our own career up. If it is going to go down the tubes I want to be responsible for it not somebody else
If you consider the British music scene and especially that around London, it’s very easy to play “6 degrees of Ginger Wildheart” as he seems to be linked to every band, promoter, solo artist and more around. Festival promoter Chris McCormack is the brother of Danny, once the bass player in The Wildhearts, Hollis J of the Love Zombies will also front Ginger’s Hey!Hello! project in their latest incarnation.
