Claw Boys Claw – $ugar (Limited edition 180g white vinyl)
Limited 180gm white vinyl LP pressing. The Dutch rock and roll band Claw Boys Claw released their sixth studio album $uga(r) in 1992. It's one of their most successful albums when you're looking to the commercial side of their career. On the album, they're reaching out for the a musical style in which the rock 'n' roll is combined with garage rock and blues, known as "swamp rock". The first single from the album, "Rosie", made it to the charts and is still their best-known track. Front man Peter te Bos' vocals sound warm and gentle and he is drifting away from his angry observations. The subtlety can also be found in the guitar melodies by John Cameron. Even when they're reaching out for a more subtle way, their loud and integrating music is audible in songs like "Sound of the Psycho" and "Y.O.Y.". During the years Claw Boys Claw established a reputation for their stage performances. With their energetic live shows and critically acclaimed albums they developed themselves to become one of the best-known bands from The Netherlands.
