Yes, finally it arrives, after being delayed a few weeks (first releasedate was set for early November) it finally arrived a couple of days ago. This is the third vinylsingle from Michael Monroe’s latest studio album “Sensory Overdrive” and just as the two previous singles it is released on colored vinyl and numbered to only 300 copies.
“Trick of the wrist” is a song wich represent the album “Sensory Overdrive” very well, you have a nice mixture of old 70s punkrock such as “Dead Boys” and “The Damned” mixed up with more modern tunes topped with Ginger’s phenomenal guitarworks (Ginger are nowadays replaced with ex-Hellacopters/Backyard Babies guitarist Dregen). It would be fair to say that Michael Monroe solo these days reminds alot of a updated Demolition 23, a band Michael had in the mid 90’s. The song “Trick of the wrist” was woted as number 1 on Little Steven’s “Coolest song in the world 2011” list on his radioshow “Underground Garage“, well worth i would say even though i think it’s better songs on the album. On the B-side you have the song “Sleepin’ with my tv on” wich was previously only available on the Japan version of “Sensory Overdrive”.
Side A: Trick of the wrist
Side B: Sleepin’ with my tv on
