The first song on ‘Amphetamine Ballads’ is called ‘I’m A Vampire’, and is not a detailed study of the vampiric lifestyle. Instead, its standout lyric, She’s more beautiful than any woman I’ve met, And she fuckin’ knows it, is a sentimental cousin of The Streets’ ‘Fit But You Know It’. With some of the biggest, hard rock riffs on the album, it’s a statement of intent. It’s fair to say that The Amazing Snakeheads are not reinventing rock’n’roll, though. Perhaps mindful of the punky chaos fans will have experienced at an Amazing Snakeheads live show, ‘Amphetamine Ballads’ is a willfully frontloaded album. The first four songs are all under four minutes, with the remaining six longer, stranger and more contemplative. Where Is My Knife?’ touts gleaming guitars, march-to-your-doom drumbeats and handclaps in a malevolent, Gun Club-y take on the urban blues.

Amphetamine Ballads The Amazing Snakeheads. As this is their debut album, there's still so much to learn about these guys. Barclay sounds less literary but more physically threatening than The Fall’s Mark E. Smith and definitely not somebody you want to run into at night, as the drunken mumble of Every Guy Wants to Be Her Baby makes clear, even as a stray sax tries to smooth over the danger.

Amphetamine Ballads is the debut album from Glasgow's The Amazing Snakeheads. A monument to the redemptive powers of rock 'n' roll - full of rage, romance and dark humour - an uncompromising, astonishingly visceral debut album. Amphetamine Ballads is the soundtrack to the dark corners of nightclubs and those dimly lit alleyways off the main drag. The smell of smoke and liquor pervades everything. Recorded at night time at The Green Door Studio in Glasgow, this is a subterranean record an album that can show you round the parts of a city that come alive after dark.

Glaswegian trio The Amazing Snakeheads are about as close as you can get to a bike-gang-band at the moment, scything through society with a gravel filled machine gun, mutilating men, women and children indiscriminately and with the belief of a freedom fighter’s martyrdom. The only difference being that martyrdom tends to follow morals and these boys lack any notion of the word as they embrace the night and embellish it’s darkness. Ampthetamine Ballads is the culmination of a degenerate band blinded by a punk ethos and wrapped in grotty, visceral rock and roll. Something which is apparent from the opening track; I’m A Vampire which not only shows the band’s affection for the cover of darkness but their unrelenting, spitting and snarling passion delivered perfectly in Dale’s vocal performance.

The Amazing Snakeheads have delivered an album bristling with unapologetic rock'n'roll invective. 60. Amphetamine Ballads is a debut that shows real promise, but if this band really wants to put the fear into the world, the first step on their reign of terror should be to hire a rhythm guitarist.
