BRUCE KULICK - BK3
A limited edition Australian EP, released by former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick to tie in with a 2009 Antipodean visit.
The opening track, ’No Friend Of Mine’, features former The Scream / Motley Crue vocalist John Corabi and, unsurprisingly, sound remarkably like Union, a band that both Kulick and Corabi were in together once their Kiss and Crue adventures were over. It’s a powerful, mid tempo stomper that stays heavy and melodic, with a fabulous hook. A real gem.
‘And I Know’ is a bit of an anti-climax after that, as things go all poppy, but thing are more than redeemed when the funky ‘Between The Lines’ arrives. It sees Steve Lukather popping in to play guitar, and veers back and forth between funk and fusion to fabulous effect. A guitarists treat, it’s well worth hearing and bodes well for the forthcoming CD.
