This is a review of "Yesterday's News" recorded by The Retrose. The review was written by Andy James in 2005.
An impressively tight two track demo from these Huddersfield youngsters. Clearly kids who worship at the altar of Eddie van Halen and Angus Young, this is solid old-skool metal with some relevant lyrics about the tabloid press. The six-minute B-side "Getaway" meanwhile owes more than a passing nod to both Guns 'n' Roses' "You Could Be Mine" and Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak" but that's no bad thing.
The only slight letdown is that the tunes could do with a bit more focus here and there but the quality of musicianship on offer here suggests that this lot could be worth keeping an eye on.
