Rock connoisseurs who appreciate a little more than a good guitar solo will love the depth and innovation of the Vigilantes Of Love. Rolling Stones rhythms, early Springsteen guts and on-the-edge lyrics embrace the shivering genius of front man Bill Mallonee with such originality it will stimulate, stun and elate the eager listener. This is classic, desert sun, open top, dusty track stuff. But with the sparkle of intelligence and the shake of uncertainty this is wind in your hair 90's style, a style that leaves all other American rock standing in a cloud of dust. Listen out for this band in the future.
