Sassy Kraimspri – Cock Fight 2

SassyKraimspri3

For dirty and sexy rock ‘n’ roll with little care for anything more flamboyant than virulent flirtation, Cock Fight 2 the new EP from Sassy Kraimspri, is a rigorous mischievous pleasure. Consisting of three tracks brewing up brawling storms of voracious rock with the antagonism of punk and salaciousness of grunge kissed garage rock, the release is a dirty contagious stomp reaffirming the impressive emergence of the Norwegian based band.

With the merged nationalities and skills of members from Norway, Australia, and the US, Sassy Kraimspri has been on a constant and attention grabbing rise since forming in 2006. They have played across the globe, impressing audiences from America, Canada, and Australia to China, Norway, and the UK to name some of the places hit, and earlier this year released the first in a trilogy of Cock Fight EPs. Cock Fight 1 roused ears and appetite for the band but now the second in the series thrusts the hunger bred for their presence into a new greed. It provides a blaze of hard hitting devilry which simply ignites the imagination and passions, making little more demand than you enjoy its adrenaline and invention brand of bruising revelry.

Recorded as its predecessor with Russ Russell (Napalm Death, The Wildhearts, Dimmu Borgir), Cock Fight 2 immediately lays down irrepressible and irresistible bait with the opening bestial bassline of Like a Drug provided by Cock Fight 2Lovely Linda Lustsalot. It is a primal lure soon joined by similarly addictive riffs and hooks from the guitars of Dick Deviant and Sassy Kraimspri, whose vocals blaze upon the ear the moment they touch. Driven by the resourceful and inciting rhythms of Etienne the Frenchman, the track swaggers with a defiant and saucy gait which itself enslaves attention. There is an instant indefinable familiarity to the song too, creating an old friend in new explosive clothes stance to make a recognisable yet fresh impact accentuated by the ridiculously anthemic chorus with its swinging hips and seductive lures. As the accompanying press release suggests there is a definite PJ Harvey edge to the vocals of Sassy whilst musically elements of L7 and Valentiine revel in the dusty hard rock and infectious punk exploits combined. The song is a riveting and extraordinarily thrilling encounter which puts the pressure of the other two tracks alongside it.

To be honest neither can match up to the first but each offers their own exciting and sweltering slabs of rock vivacity. Riot comes next taking a more deliberately even paced entrance punctuated by stabs of riffs and thumping rhythms stalked by again a deliciously sinister bass sound. The song prowls around ears as its settles into its intensive charm, melodies pouting and heavily stomping rhythms uniting for an incendiary persuasion led by the impressive fire of vocals. Bursting with rapacious expulsions of energy and coarse guitar adrenaline, the encounter ebbs and flows with a volcanic climate and ferocious enterprise, never leaving senses and appetite devoid of a tasty endeavour.

The closing Say What comes closest to matching the opening triumph with its outstanding adventure. Its first second brings a winding spiral of grooves and temptress bred vocals, each seducing with magnetic wantonness. The song continues to swerve with stirring melodic enticement and mesmeric vocal tempting, predatory riffs and rhythms urging full submission to which harmonies and those inescapable melodies bring mouth-watering rewards. It is a sultry and memory haunting end to a completely thrilling encounter.

As shown powerfully by Cock Fight 2, Sassy Kraimspri knows how to create and uncage rock ‘n’ roll to steal the heart and invigorate the soul, roll on EP 3 we say.

Cock Fight 2 is available via Lady Luck Records now.
