Amyl & The Sniffers

· by Patrick Baillargeon

Teenage rage, a lot of sweat and sex appeal en masse, that’s pretty much Amyl & the Sniffers. Nothing more complicated than that. With their radioactive hillbilly looks, their two or three basic chords and their overload of energy, the Sniffers, led by the caustic and provocative Amy Taylor, aim for nothing more than making a racket and having some fun. That much is glaringly evident on the first full-length album from the Melbourne band. They’re not reinventing the genre here (what garage band would dare to, anyway?), but they certainly have what it takes to make a damn good rock ‘n’ roll record: guts, feeling and authenticity.
