Black Diamond Heavies


“Black Diamond Heavies can do no wrong in these parts. The ultra-heavy keys-and-drums duo makes more racket than a busload of brewery workers on their way to a company-sponsored detox and this song’s no exception. If there’s a criticism it’s that the production is a little muted rather than the usual needles-in-the-red distorted low-fi. Bilyl Gaz Station are possibly the best French band I’d not heard until their side of this 45 made contact with the stylus. “Light Up The Sky” is a Blue Oyster Cult guitar-styled rocker with a rhythm section that takes no prisoners. It’s enough to make me forgive the Van Halen band logo (but I’m also guessing the homage is intentional.)”
