REVIEWS / QUOTES On Leanne Kingwell's 'NEW TATTOO' Album... 'Passionate, powerful, sexy. One of the most exciting albums released in the last decade.' - Billy Pinnell, Rock Critic 'The most exciting female artist I've heard in a long time. It's an outstanding album. A huge talent... Fantastic musicians... Sensational!' - Off the Record, Triple R FM 'Assertive songwriting of the highest order. Highlights abound on every track. . . ' - MAG (Music Australia Guide) 'Such a great, honest record.' - Jeff Jenkins, Inpress Magazine 'Profane. . . f*** you subtext. . . rocks hard.' - Patrick Emery, 3PBS Album Reviews 'These songs have tremendous appeal live... ' - The Australian Mood, Triple R FM ALBUM REVIEW - MAG - Music Australia Guide by Billy Pinnell (05/05) When was the last time you heard an album featuring a female singer whose original music is influenced by The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Easybeats, 70's David Bowie, Bo Diddley and David Lynch? If the prospect of investigating such a release is mouth watering, do whatever it takes to get a hold of a copy of Leanne Kingwell's debut 'New Tattoo'. Backed by an explosive rhythm section, inventive lead guitar and Chris Copping's Hammond organ, Leanne interprets her intelligent sexy lyrics with a voice that is powerful but never harsh, authoritative and passionate. Highlights abound on virtually every track. The sexy Stones-ish 'Can't Get Enough' ('grab my hips, spank me, jump up and down'), 'Look At My Life' with it's resolute message (I've been to hell and back, still got some fuel in the tank'), the bitingly sarcastic 'Back To Me' ('you'll come crawling, don't sugar coat your reasons, it makes you sound weak... but I guess you are'). This is assertive songwriting of the highest order. Here is a girl who won't be emotionally bullied. The album's two covers, the moody 'Blind' written by James Stewart from Melbourne band Overnight Jones finds Leanne sounding not unlike Julee Cruise, while The Angels, 'Be With You' a mid tempo rocker features another convincing vocal and tasty lead guitar from Stewart. First time out and already Leanne Kingwell has left an indelible mark with 'New Tattoo' - Billy Pinnell ALBUM REVIEW - 106.7 3PBS FM by Patrick Emery (06/05) Leanne Kingwell's debut album works comfortably within her nominal genre. The genealogical context of the music can be traced back to The Runaways via Suzi Quattro. Kingwell's voice has a snarly, attitude-rich quality which, in combination with the f*** you subtext of the lyrics ('Look At My Life'), suggests someone intent on adopting a very demonstrative approach to social and personal relations. There's a nominal division between catchy rock tunes and slower, more soulful songs with an emotive regional twang ('Frightened (Gun Shy', 'Blind', 'Be With You', 'Back to Me (Crawling)', 'More'). My personal preference were for the more rockin' tunes ('Show Ya What', 'Can't Get Enough') where the chunky blues chords bring to mind The Angels and ZZ Top. Particular favourites were 'Drop Your Pants', which teams staccato guitar stabs with profane (and amusing) suggestions for potential male suitors and the piano iced 'You Stink'. This album certainly rocks hard, with a friendliness that commercial radio stations should be attracted to. - Patrick Emery BIOGRAPHY Word is out on Leanne Kingwell's debut solo album, 'NEW TATTOO'. And the word is good. Critic, Patrick Emery says 'Profane... f*** you subtext... rocks hard.' MAG (Music Australia Guide) reckons 'Assertive songwriting of the highest order. Highlights abound on every track...' 'Off the Record' say, 'A huge talent... Fantastic musicians... Sensational.' The Australian Mood asserts 'These songs have tremendous appeal live.' Long-time album reviewer, Billy Pinnell, calls it 'Passionate, powerful, sexy. One of the most exciting albums released in the last decade.' Not bad raps for a rebellious catholic schoolgirl who started off in the early nineties, playing bass, singing and writing with cult Melbourne grunge outfit 'Happy Gas Stare'. 'Midnight gigs in sleazy bars just seemed a better alternative for me than midnight mass,' Leanne recalls. 'I spent so many years playing in scuzzie pub venues that I started to believe all air smelled like beer and urinals. But, ya gotta pay ya dues, doncha?' 'Rock n' Roll was not the way to get your 'go to heaven, tickets' when I was growing up. My childhood was dedicated to sport and study. My teenage rebellion was listening to The Clash, Bowie, Sex Pistols and the like, on a 15 dollar walkman, under my blankets when my family went to bed. Maybe that's why I still have a thing for solitude and dark places.' Leanne took 3 years out to write and record 'NEW TATTOO'. Why so long? 'It was a musical direction and craft thing. I'd started off in a headbanger band that morphed into a glam rock outfit and then further de-evolved into a pop act with a major record deal. So, I'd had lots of experience learning what I didn't want to do anymore.' 'I saw The Angels gig at the Palace in 2000 and it absolutely knocked me out. I was one of a dozen girls in a room of about 1500 guys who just went off and knew the words to every song. That gig got me thinking about how to create some kick arse rock n' roll that girls would dig as much as guys. My brief to myself after that night was to make, a chick record with balls.' 'The world is full of aspiring rock chicks who think 12 bar is a strip club and a rock lick is blowing their A and R guy. I'd missed roots rock by about half a century. I had to do a lot of homework. Learn a lot of new things, musically. Then adapt them so that they became mine.' So, has Leanne Kingwell found her true voice with 'NEW TATTOO'? 'I'm happy with NEW TATTOO. It's not political, pretentious, too cynical or in any way downbeat. The opposite in fact. It's a good, honest, consistent, album that takes you on an energetic and emotional ride with humour and a beer and chicken wire sensibility. Play it at a barbie. Play it loud. Get drunk. Dance. Sing along. Get your head out of your arse and have a good time. That's why God created rock n'roll.' Keep spreading the word, Leanne. (Bio Courtesy of Krill Records)
