Generous Maria + Skua
Alone Rec. 2000
From the mighty spanish label Alone Records based
in Malaga we have this nice split CD, in which we can listen to two very good
bands: one is Generous Maria, the other is Skua.
If you wanna know something about the awesome Generous Maria, just browse our
site to the review of their demo (or, if you prefer, click here), because on
this release we find the four tracks we listened on their demo, Strict Nurse. If
you are tired and don't wanna browse, just keep in mind Generous is one of the
best pure hard rock 70s band in Europe...I really can't wait for a future
full-lenght release...everything is cool in generous Maria..the vocals, the
instruments, the whole compositions.
What can I say about Skua? Well, they're a revelation!!!! I never heard anything
about them, but they really are a good band. Their style is cool, just to let
you know, they're a bit in the style of bands like Dozer, very powerful and
hypnotic, with outstanding fuckin' good vocals and fat sounds, I really enjoied
their four songs...another favourite pick!!! Oh my god, how many great bands are
there??? So, we must thank everyone at Alone Records, for giving us the
opportunity to discover Skua, and to re-discover Generous Maria.
Please be good with your ears and buy this stuff, absolutely!
