The Bell Rays


Let it Blast

This record dates to 1998 and it's a shame that it's taken the gullbuy three years to acquire a copy.

I feel lazy in using the following description of the band (I think every review I've seen of this band uses the same or very similar terms) but it's so apt that I have to say it: The Bell Rays sound like Tina Turner fronting the MC5. No lie. Heavy, heavy rock with great soulful female vocals.

Prior to this CD they had released two full-length cassettes (dating to the early '90s) and have released at least one more CD since.

If you like to rock, you will like this CD; simple as that.
