Loaded 44 are the ass-shakin' punk rock band from the North East of England. Formed in 1996, guitarist-songwriter Dave is joined by Beki (Steve Ignorant's Last Supper European tour 2010) with Steve and Nelly from The Lurkers and Hi Fi Spitfires.
With a sound that has been compared to "Blondie meets the Ramones", Loaded 44 will blow you away with their dynamic live shows.
Their new album, Wasted On You, includes two tracks featuring The Toy Dolls' Olga on guitar and is out now on STP records.
They've upped the ante with the production on this release too, it just sounds a lot more together and 'produced' than the last effort. Released by the STP label, this is one that should catapult them into the big time, whatever the big time is...it's gonna certainly help them with bigger and better shows, and having the support of the STP label can only be a good thing. Stand out tracks are 'Radio' [playing] and 'I'm Not The One', which both showcase the bands abilities musically and Beki's vocals. Top marks too for the album artwork and funky cd art too... Check 'em out and tell 'em we sent ya along!
"WE SAVED THE WORLD TODAY ‚?? First track is always important and this doesn‚??t disappoint crashing in and bursting into a well crafted, rocking punk song well mixed and full of loud life, this band have moved on full force and they saved the world today which is good for the rest of us, love the stop start section and the solo is ok but its short so that‚??s good haha, very catchy Singalong chorus speeds this song to a very quick conclusion, an impressive start shows the band mean business with no time to breath !"
