LITTLE REBEL FULL METAL JACKET
FULL REBEL JACKET (DR013)
1997 marks the three year point from the new millennium and Delinquent Records release of "FULL REBEL JACKET", Little Rebel's long awaited release. Even moreso than in 1991, with their beginnings as Cheyenne, Little Rebel again stands alone on the music scene and screams "Are you ready to rock'n'roll?"
The band realizes that their time for reupsurgance into the rock scene is at some musicial standoff between the major labels and the fans. Little Rebel recognizes that MTV is of no practical use to any rocker except for the espisodes of Beavis and Butthead. The late '90s is sort of a post-grunge apocalyptic waste land of deary, "who really gives a sh*t" approach to radio programming . . . and that train of thought just runs back downhill to the listeners.
Raeph, Nancy and the band are choosing to make a comeback at a time when there is "no scene" and no locals clubs nationwide that the kids hang to "be seen". In our area in the late '80s - early '90s, you were either "seen or part of the scene".
Now there's nothing.
Little Rebel has a new couple of faces in the line-up now, too. After several years of line-up changes and all the heartache that goes with it . . . Little Rebel is back with a new sound and image. Raeph and Weeder add the bluesy edge of experience to the new Little Rebel. In the past several years, while Nancy* and Dave E. have hung around since the Cheyennedays, Tate was occasionally featured in the Little Rebel line-up. Raeph was the vocalist from Nancy*s early touring band Bratz during the '80s and Tate & Weeder were musically joined at the hip during their teen years. According to Little Rebel, for the first time ever all the aspects of Little Rebel actually make sense and work smoothly as a unit.
The new release is a little different; however, it doesn't take aly make sense and work smoothly as a unit.
The new release is a little different; however, it doesn't take a television-psychic to see that FULL REBEL JACKET is still sleazy, but with a heavier groove, with more personal and darker lyrics and themes, out of our collective dark experiences over the last few years. Little Rebel still sing about sex, drugs, and rebellion, Only now . . . they are really pissed about it! While the whole world seemed to sell out to grunge/seattle/alternative, Little Rebel remained true to the whole meaning of hard rock and roll - and after a couple of years off the scene, Little Rebel remains true to each other and their fans!
