Dallas Crane: Scoundrels

Dallas Crane are that rock band that once upon a time recorded and released that song with Jimmy Barnes called ‘Sit On My Knee’. It had all the makings of a hit rock and roll song and now in 2015 they are back once again with their new album entitled Scoundrels. Opening with ‘The Sunnyside’ some people might be confused they have put on a AC/DC record as lead vocalist Dave Larkin seems to be channelling a hell of a lot of Bon Scott in the opening track. However it’s something that works in their favour, because Scoundrels is a ripper of a record. First off, this is the band’s first album in nine years and, being completely honest with you, it’s a welcome return for the boys.
The guitars are huge and Larkin’s vocals sound massive throughout the album. Come To Light and So It Goes are two of my favourite tracks off the record and it could be a late addition for a notable mention for Australia’s top albums. Christmas is coming up and every aussie dad would surely love this record in their stocking. Be a brilliant son/daughter and get it for him today. It’s a great thing that one of the most enduring rock bands in Aussie history are back once again. Dallas Crane you killed it with this one!
