Blasting Fondas- Slightly Bruised LP. The Blasting Fondas are a Swedish four piece and their debut album is modern, yet soaked in the rich tradition of 80’s radio rock and good poppy punk rock. Their potent blend of vintage instruments, contemporary songwriting and retro production make their sound incredibly catchy and unique. And it becomes clear after hearing the first song that the Blasting Fondas have a lot on the frying pan. Their Scandinavians origins can be clearly heard as they take their hat off to bands like the Nomads, Maharajas and the Strollers combining a flair for catchy melodies and a finesse for crafy hooks. "Slightly Bruised" is a driving 13 song poppy rock'n'roll record for fans of anything from the Boys to the Replacements and from Elvis Costello to the Ramones. Recommended. Import from Sweden.
