Album Notes
Miss 45 play shamelessly poppy glam rock’n’roll with a punk attitude, perfect melodies and infectious choruses. Razor sharp pop anthems and unworldly catchy barbed wire ballads drenched in a blood-red river of emotions and rebellious groove. In the unholy year of 2008, the sharply dressed Stockholm quartet are essentially the sole defenders of the sacred formula.

Since the formation of the band three years ago, Deck Fransisco, Felix Vendetta, Colonel M. Knoxx and Dan Frankenstein have pounded through a range of selected live shows and intensive rehearsals, coming
ever closer and closer to the perfect mix of controlled chaos and finely calibrated pop genius. With their eponymously titled debut EP from 2006, which received widespread critical acclaim in the US and European press, the band was perilously close to perfection. But now, the circle is complete.

On the full length debut –– Steals the Show –– released on April 1 2008, Miss 45 has managed to produce a completely unique imprint on the worn out and stale three-chords-concept. With the record’s 34 explosive minutes of intensive licks, the band has successfully combined the best from the old heroes such as New York Dolls, Ramones and Chuck Berry, with their own, updated sound for the 21st Century.

Miss 45 has blessed us with a rich oasis in the contemporary desert of tone-deaf indie bands dressed in ill-fitting blazers and sluggish heavy metal machismo. Simply put, if you’re searching for of maniacal partyrock’n’roll with enough heart, soul and electric high voltage to put all thorax clinics, private psychologists and greedy corporations on this side of the Atlantic out of business, look no further.

Reviews of "Steals the Show"

"Steals The Show is the perfect r'n'r album and it has to be part of your collection. It's one of those albums you'll put on more often cos all tracks are genius. It's just the right dose of pop and the right dose or rock to make it perfect."
No Brains Zine

"Miss 45 back up their dedication to a bygone vintage with a real consistency that makes for a solid album which, surprisingly given the blurred boundaries of this corner of the R'N'R world, brands them with an almost distinct sound that they can call their own; Original? No way. Impressive? You betcha!"

"Torturing their pop to make the songs trashy enough to satisfy fanatics of the DOLLS, The Boys or HANOI ROCKS, these four rockers “made in Stockholm” and their irreproachable musical influences still rock whether they’re playing devilish rock or sweet ballads."

"Sleazy enough with a swank garage pop sound that falls somewhere between the Sonic Rendezvous Band and The Jacobites, and lyrical references to Hanoi Rocks, the New York Dolls, and The Ramones. Steals the Show is one of those rare birds that’ll tickle the rockers and the dancers.".
The Sleazegrinder

"Sometimes sleazy, sometimes gritty, sometimes heard rockin’ and sometimes laid back but it all works – MISS 45 have certainly explored this territory well because nothing sounds out of place on this record."
No Front Teeth Zine

"Das ist alles in allem fein abgestimmter Rock’n’Roll-Punk-Glam, der so manches Mal durch eine fette JOHNNY THUNDERS-Gitarre ordentlich durchgeschuettelt wird, und dessen weitere Patenonkel in den USA zuhause sind, und auf so klangvolle Namen wie die NEW YORK DOLLS oder THE JONESES hoeren."
3rd Generation Nation

"The knock-down-drag-out vibe of Steals the Show keeps it moving, revealing heart as well as energy. It's a rock record you can dance to as much lose your mind to. "
Bootleg Magazine

"...the band proves that they are indeed evolving into their own sound. Make no mistakes about it, the heart is all New York Dolls, Heartbreakers and Stones, with Thunders riffs spread through out, but the band has found a way of pushing them a bit further back, and using them at the appropriate times."

Miss 45
Possibly the best cd I've heard in a long long time. superb stuff. Some great songwriting and a throw back to pure rock n roll in the mould of johnny thunders, early hanoi as well as bit's of the faces here and there and takes me right back to a time when rock n roll meant something. just like some older great bands who never broke out like the soho roses or gunfire dance and uk bands of the eighties like the gunslingers and the dogs D'amour. . Can't wait for the next album and maybe a UK tour.


I like it
The Ramones meet the Replacements in a kinda Thin Lizzy kinda way.
