Indonesian Junk- Stars In The Night LP. Big hooks and big riffs is what Indonesian Junk are all about. Hailing from the land of Lenny and Squiggy, this Milwaukee trio takes the best elements of glam, punk, heavy metal, and power pop, while ditching the fluff to create a tuff n' catchy blast of instant classics. They're frequently compared to the 1970s New York underground and they nicked their name from a Cheap Trick lyric about some of the shadier activities some certain members of society might like to partake in. Simply put, this record is juts filled with hits. "Tonight" is the closest Indonesian Junk has ever come to a pure power pop song, and "Turn To Stone" is a first class solo Stiv Bators-ish ripper. But while the poppier songs on this album are amazing (good luck getting "Why Did I Call You" out of your head anytime soon!), but that's only the half of it! "Stars" is a loving tribute to Nikki Sudden and quite possibly the best song Daniel has ever written and "Slow Down" is like a sonic teleportation back to the hey day of Max's Kansas City. This album has everything I love about '70s punk, glam, pop, and good old filthy rock n' roll all rolled together and spat out in a wonderful and totally original way. Recommended.
