Black Robot takes hard rock back to the basics of concussive 4/4 beats, cocky lead vocals, and brutally bashing power chords. Remember feeling the bass drum pounding in your chest cavity, and a lead singer stuck in the unholy trinity of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll? Black Robot not only remembers, but they’re hell-bent on a mission to keep those days around for good.

Original Buckcherry bassist Jonathan “JB” Brightman formed Black Robot with motor city vocalizer Huck Johns, and the end result is a lot like an AC/DC-Buckcherry two headed berserker. Don’t look for hoity toity academic posturing on Baddass, just crack open the beers and PARTY. These guys want to ROCK you, not give you points to ponder. This isn’t geek music for the faint-of-heart, it’s the stinky soundtrack to a good sweaty FUCK. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, Tipper Gore!

In all fairness, while 90% of this CD is crotch pulsation (“Cocaine”, “Girls Kissing Girls”, “23 Days Of Night”), there’s some softer sentiment within too (“I’m In Love” & “Stop The World” with keyboards by primo session man Fred Mandell), so I guess the Black Robot guys know the advantages of having a couple chick songs in the midst of the testosteroney tunage! I wholeheartedly salute them.
