Black Amplifier

By The Super Insurgent Group of Intemperance Talent

Well this is as 'out of town' as any review I've ever done: The Super Insurgent Group of Intemperance Talent (or The S.I.G.I.T. as they like to be called) are a rock 'n' roll four piece straight out of Indonesia. They're loud. They've probably made a pact with the devil. They'd sound particularly good after a few beers on a Saturday night. They also sound like an adult version of that band Gene Simmons made up out of posh kids on School of Rock a few months back. Bless 'em.

I could go through each of the tracks and point out their particular subtleties. But there aren't any. There isn't even much to discern between one track and another, but this is ok. Why? Because we're not talking about songs here, we're talking about two and a half minute long balls of (ahem) ROCK. Look at the track names if you don't believe me: Black Amplifier, Save Me, It's Gonna Be Alright and (my personal favourite) Satan State.

A large part of me was tempted to slate this demo to within in an inch of its life. Why? Well how many more retro rock 'n' roll bands do we need for crying out loud? But then a thought hit: if an endless line of recent piss-poor bands are allowed to get fat from recycling second hand 70s riffs straight off each other... then why can't The S.I.G.I.T. plunder the same ideas straight from the original Led Zeppelin cliff face? It's made even more excusable when they have the Ritalin defying energy of the aforementioned School of Rock nippers. Half of me says there's no point in you ever listening to this record. The other half says you'd probably have a bloody good time if you did. Your choice.
