ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Well if it's sleaze rock you're after then you've come to the right place here - this EP is that scummy-sounding that you'll probably need to go for a shower after hearing it. Kickstarter are a California-based bunch of dirtballs who, at their best, sound like the Dead Boys covering Rose Tattoo(vocalist Danny Dee does a pretty damn good approximation of the late great Stiv Bators which is always a plus). Keep an eye out for 'em."

-Pure Rawk UK

"San Francisco's Kickstarter bear a striking resemblance to 90s LA strut-rock kings Motorcycle Boy minus the shag haircuts and she-male groupies, but with the same pie-eyed, crotch-grabbing swagger and knack for sleazy riffs and candy-coated pop hooks. This record is getting somebody laid, that's for sure. Why not you?"

-Classic Rock Magazine


"This album has the same kinda cool hand-drawn cover artwork that says "GLAM CLASSIC!!!" the second you see it. You know the kinda thing I'm talking about; Pretty Boy Floyd's 'Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz' had one, and so did Gemini Five's 'Babylon Rockets'. The ample-chested young lady sitting astride a gleaming purple Harley on the front of Kickstarter's self-titled seven-track CD leaves you in no doubt that you're holding something special in your hands. What you're not holding in your hands, however, is a record sounding anything like as polished as either of the afore-mentioned glam masterpieces. What you get from Kickstarter is a far grittier, rawer proposition - the kind of ear-bashing you got when you heard much-missed New York glamour punks D Generation for the first time; vocalist Danny Dee even sharing Jesse Malin's trademark nasal-whine. Perhaps not surprisingly then, Kickstarter list D Generation amongst their many influences, but in truth the band's sound can be traced back far earlier than 1994. Coming on like the Ramones (only played better!), 'Since Yesterday' is as fine a slab on American retro-punk as you could hope for, whilst 'Jody's on Junk' recalls the sleazier New York Dolls. The pace continues throughout, slowing only slightly for 'Bitter Rotten Pill' - bringing to mind 'Heaven or Hollywood' era Uncle Sam. In fact, this change of pace serves to break the album up and stop it getting too samey. Although at only 22 minutes long, you're never gonna hear anyone complaining they're bored already. Kickstarter' is a welcome reminder of an almost forgotten time, and whether you favour polished nails, or the dirtier, bitten and chewed variety, you're likely to find something here that revs your engine!"

-Glitzine

"Kickstarter like their rock'n'roll old fashioned and uncomplicated...catchy fare to knock back some cold ones and kick start the party."

-Bubblegum Slut Magazine

"I've been listening to your CD the past couple of days here at work, and must say...it's pretty damned good. I think one of the things that really impressed me was the production quality. The tunes are great and it seems like you guys are tight musicians."

-Spike The Vain Volume 2

"Great snotty Punk Rock & Roll, with overdriven raw Johnny Thunders guitar sound! Refreshing to hear a leather-jacketed muscle punk round of songs. Fast to mid-paced songs propel you along, with tasty riffs and cool Chuck Berry leads with a strong bluesy appeal. Lyrics are funny cynical “streets of Hollywood ” horror stories of local victims of drunken debauchery, drug depravity, and doped out dead enders. Music goes more in the direction of the Angry Samoans, Dictators, NY Dolls, side of 70s Punk Rock, without ever getting sloppy or, horror of horrors, stooping down to gutter punk level (thank god!) and fully carries itself well in the company of all the great Punk Rock & Roll that has emerged from California over the years. Fans of southern Cali greats The Stitches will like this, I do."

-AMP Magazine

"The next evolutionary stage in retro rocking may not be glam/trash rock, but Kickstarter probably has a few choice words for anyone that thinks otherwise. Melding the late-'70s punk fury and simplicity of the Damned and the Ramones with the pure sleaze of hair-metal superstars like Mötley Crüe and Poison, Kickstarter has a sound that's full of over-the-top guitars, a pounding rhythm section and the perfect vocal complement in the form of the nasally whine of Danny Dee. The rebellious and the nasty sonic grit of Kickstarter could induce booze-riddled debauchery at a church camp."

Dave The Devil Boy

Dig: GNR, KISS, Crue, and Junkyard, get this CD
Great production and mix!

Screaming,smokey/whisky drenched vocals, loud over the top guitars (AKA: Slash, Joe Perry), pounding drums and throbing heavy bass (AKA Gene Simmons.)

The Kickstarter CD is a must for: any adult filmworker/maker or New York, Las Vegas, Chicago, or Hollywood stripper/bartender/barback. Or anyone that digs down and dirty rock n roll.

Kickstarter should be on tour with Motley Crue, Kiss, Buck Cherry, and Guns N Roses
in 2008!

This CD rocks!

Get the disk and get in groove now!
