Initially active during the early 80’s Manchester’s ROX were somewhat a fish out of water. Wanting to don the spandex and make up favoured by our American cousins rather than the Denim and leather of the NWOBHM crowd their music in the UK sadly fell upon mostly deaf ears. But for many, mesmerised by their ‘Hot Love In The City’ EP back in 1982 this was the real deal. Fast forward to 2017 and a freshly recorded EP ‘Teenteeze’ brought tears to the (mascara smudged) eyes of those who hankered for the ROX brand of fire and brimstone. And now a mere 2 years later the quite wonderful ‘ROXSTARS’ shows up. 11 tracks which draw their influences from the likes of KISS, Angel, Starz et al and in keeping with such mighty influences they all epitomise what Glam Metal/Pop is all about. The band have crafted each song to maximise its commercial potential to the very limit. The production is polished, fresh but at the same time big giving the whole thing a stadium sized sheen.
