ATOMIC ANTS Keep Cool And Dry
Casket CSK067 (2006)

If you've been pining away for the days when the Red Hot Chili Peppers were good, or even for the days when the Bloodhound Gang were funny, then Atomic Ants may well be the band you were waiting for.

They've been honing their act for the last 3 years, touring through their homeland, Italy, getting ready for this debut album. It's more metal funk than it is funk metal, and like most music of its ilk, it overstays its welcome across 14 tracks, but when they get the combination right, it raises a smile and gets you heading for the dance floor. Which is, surely, its purpose.

They've even got the novelty hit single lurking here, in the shape of "Mariah", where they plot the theft of some top of the line lingerie from the plastic coated Ms Carey. Apparently her 'bazoongas' are driving them out of their minds. Each to their own:-) Sharing a penchant with fellow myrmecologists, Alien Ant Farm, they've also tried to raise the spectre of bad eighties pop with an irony free trek through Spandau Ballets "Through The Barricades". Not a good thing.

They do their thang very well, it's got a good, crisp, production, and there's a battalion of twelve year old, silicone obsessed boys out there, just waiting for this!
