"Lemon Bird - Rara Avis"

Through one of my connections in the biz I recently received the debut album of Lemon Bird, named 'Rara Avis'. Enclosed was a small paper with some info in their native language on it. They are Swedes, by the way. Guaranteed fun over at casa KVK when something like this drops in the mail box!
Anyway, I didn't exactly need a lot of info as from opening tune 'Stepping Outside' right up to closing track '(All The Little) Lemon Birds', it is perfectly clear that these Swedish boys have been fishing for inspiration in the kaleidoscope waters of the late 60's to half 70's.
Everything of that time that had a little guitar in, was paid a visit by Lemon Bird and was shamelessly ripped off in the process. A bad thing? Far from it or it should happen that songs in the vein of Led Zeppelin (Ain't Gonna Grieve) & Uriah Heep (Climbing) are not your cup of tea.
For all those that would like some 'new' songs from aforementioned bands completed with vintage Bad Company, Yardbirds and/or Humble Pie could do worse than to lend an ear to this fine collection of songs.
Oh, and "rara avis" is Latin for "rare bird". Just for the ones who enjoy a game of Trivial Pursuit now & then. (KVK) - http://www.rockreport.be/review.asp?id=2316


CD: Rara Avis (2008)



Lemon Bird's been around since 2004. Main influences are all great rock icons from especially the 60's and 70's.
