Norway - Full Moon 123 - 10/07/06
Who Do You Think I Am?
Focolift hail from Norway and play funky rock. Opener "Locals" sees the band begin the album with a bang. The singer hollers and the guitars get turned up to ten. The salsa flavor of "Got what it takes" continues the upbeat party mood.
"Flakong Kokong" reminds me of long defunct Swedes the Creeps, another good-time party band with a strong vocalist. The trumpet played by Magnus Askin serves to single the band out. "Swiffer Bitch" is a neatly paced number about a no-good girl. All in all, a nice debut.
