FULL HOUZE »Streets of Town«

Stil: Hard Rock/Blues Rock

full houze streets of townO Grciji pravzaprav poslušamo vsak dan in ne glede na zakljucke, do katerih lahko vsak povprecnež prisopiha, je to dokoncana in žalostna zgodba brez izhoda. V pravo veselje mi je ko mi pride v roke kakšen izdelek iz teh krajev. Leta 2001 so nastali Full Houze, petclanska zasedba, ki si je za vzor vzela ameriški Southern Rock kot smo ga navajeni pri Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers in teksacanih ZZ Top. V vseh teh letih je zasedba nanizala vec kot 500 nastopov skupaj s kupinami Pavlov`s Dog, Snowy White, Dr. Feelgood, Nine Below Zero,... Full Houze predstavljajo Hard Rock v stilu bikerjev in svobodnih ljudi! Njihova izvedba, te zelo dobre plošce, je na visokem profesionalnem nivoju ter še vedno obdrži svobodnjaštvo kot so si ga zamislili tovrstni bendi.

Fireworks magazine - Streets of Town Review

by Rob McKenzie


Full Houze is a five piece rock band (the type with two guitars to give you a clue on their style) from Thessalonika, Greece. The band´s sound is Southern Rock with influences clearly based on the likes of Lynyrd Sknynrd and the Allman Brothers. Certainly Panos Doucas on vocals has got a very realistic American accent and the guitar sounds are quite in keeping (I am reasonably sure it is a Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster dual guitar attack).

The songs are based around strong riffs with a good vocal delivery and there are memorable tracks on display here, most notably ´Streets Of Town´ itself with a really great extended guitar solo which lets loose. There are a couple of tracks which are a bit dated in sound and style such as ´Dancin´ Doll´ which has some very 70s lyrics and ´Draggin´ Around´ which is somewhat predictable. Having said that, the guitar duel on the latter track is good fun.

5/5 Stars for "Streets of Town"

5/5 Stars for "Streets of Town"FULL HOUZE Street Of Town Alive Natural Sound Alive 0130-2 (2012)


Greek rockers Full Houze have soaked up the best southern rock, boogie and classic rock influences and 'Streets of Town' is their take on an excellent fusion of the past flipped into the present. The twin guitar led band boast three song writers and a mighty vocalist in Panos Doucas. 'Streets Of Town' is a passionate retro musical journey that opens with heavy duty boogie and works its way to a deeply wrought southern rock finish.

'Streets of Town' is a also a surprisingly well produced record for an independent release with Panos filling each track with a big vocal presence and he cleverly uses a variety of different vocal attacks to colour the respective songs. The end result is plenty of light and shade, stylistic diversity and intense playing within the classic rock format.
