People Are The Best Show
Celeb Car Crash are an Italian rock band that have now been with us for almost four years, they formed from the ashes of numerous Italian bands including Klogr, Lena’s Baedream, Violet Gibson, Waiting for Titor, Convergence, Octave and Opposite Sides. They released their debut album, Ambush!, only a few months after their formation and since that time they have released a number of EP’s and singles and toured Europe relentlessly, now they bring us their sophomore album, People Are The Best Show.
Let Me In, the first single from People Are The Best Show, opens the album in fine style, this is a serious high impact alt rock number that sounds like the best song Velvet Revolver never wrote. The eleven tracks that follow on from the impressive lead single all plough various furrows of the nineties alt rock and grunge scene, but it’s all done so well that I find myself not caring that People Are The Best Show is an unashamedly retro album. I can only think that the final track Nearly In Bloom is a tongue in cheek reference to the Nirvana song of the same name, and I can’t think of a better metaphor for this band. Had Celeb Car Crash been around a quarter of a century ago then they could have been one of the biggest bands on the planet, as it is they deserve to be better known across Europe, and beyond, as this is a fine album, albeit one that has one foot firmly planted in the past.
Like their fellow countrymen Guida this is a slab of rock music that harks back to previous decade, whilst Guida head back further in time for inspiration Celeb Car Crash are informed by the rock and grunge bands of the 1990’s and 2000’s. You can hear the influence of the likes of Alice in Chains, Faith No More, Foo Fighters, Metallica, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden in their sound, there’s nothing wrong with being retro if it’s done well, and believe me People Are The Best Show is done very well, if you have any love for any of the aforementioned bands that have influenced Celeb Car Crash then you’ll adore this album.
