It's OK, They're Doctors

Doctors of Madness - Figments of Emancipation

This album represents about the end of the road for glam rock. It ends right where it is supposed to - sort of a pre-punk snottiness. If you take away the violin, tighten up the songs, and maybe dumb down the riffs a notch, you're pretty well there.

But the violin is still there, innit? This record sounds to me a lot like the Cockney Rebel stuff (if you don't have their first two, you really should). Violin-based and dark as hell. The big difference being that Steve Harley from CR is kind of a ponce, and Kid Strange isn't so much. Minor difference, though.

I'm thinking about adding a couple more glam ones before moving on. Your comments will convince me whether I should.

re Doctors of Madness - inspired choice! @Late Night Movies, All Night Brainstorms' (the follow up album) is even better...more glam please!!!

A real great band that is so overlooked! Buy all the albums if you don't have them because they are worth having.

Glam is good!
