Rock & Roll Postcard from France – Gérard reviews The Cinders – “Up From the Ashes”

THE CINDERSUp From the AshesELP Records

Upfrompochette Attention talent! voici la “next big thing” française!! Les véritables gardiens de la flamme power pop! Laurent Ciron était le guitariste des vénérés et mythiques Dogs, accompagné de Christian Rosset (bassiste des Dogs) ils rencontrent Jeff Crane (the Ballbusters) et décident de rebondir après la fin tragique du groupe de Rouen (décès deu leader Dominique Laboubée). “up from the ashes” est né et n’a pas fini de grandir!! Un album gorgé de rock (Jet set Gypsy/Courage) de power pop (looking for Mr Right/Eliza) et Pop (my favourite audience). En fait c’est un cd complet, bourré jusqu’à la gueule de grandes chansons évidentes. On sent le plaisir jaillir de toute part à l’écoute des 13 titres. Laurent (vieux copain d’armes) est devenu un chanteur de haute tenue et que dire de ses parties de guitare explosives et incisives. Allez-y, foncez! vous avez l’un des grands albums de 2006 à acheter sans attendre!!! un must!

Attention all bands! Here is the next big thing from France! Veritable guardians of the power pop flame! Laurent Ciron the guitarist of the venerable and mythic Dogs, accompanied by Christian Rosset (bassist of the Dogs) they met up with Jeff Crane (the Ballbusters) and decide to rebound after the tragic end of the group Rouen (which ended after the death of band leader Dominique Laboubée). “Up from the Ashes” was born and continues to grow. An album that is stuffed to the gills with rock attitude and style (Jet Set Gypsy/Courage) and power pop (Looking for Mr. Right/Eliza) and pop (My Favourite Audience). In total this is a complete CD, stuffed with great big songs. One feels nothing but pleasure as you listen to all 13 songs. Laurent (an old comrade of arms) has become a singer of the highest caliber accompanied by explosive and incisive guitars. Rush out to get one of the best albums of 2006 ASAP! A must!!
