Braden's Music - Return of Hair?!

For my first random finding/music post I will talk about a Finnish band called Reckless Love. Who are they? Well, if the title of this blog didn’t give it away, RL basically are Finland’s answer to Motley Crue and Kiss etc. The outfits. The hairstyles. The overkill application of make-up. Hell, the music especially is a blatant throwback! Yep that’s right, RL are playing the cheese that Grunge music (R.I.P.) took down in the early 90s.

How did I find out about these guys? I was searching online for new bands to check out (mostly alt rock) and these guys randomly popped up. I noticed their band picture had all band members dressed like the Motley Crue’s of the world. My initial thought was: these guys have to be a joke band; a band that deliberately makes fun of another band or music style.

So I checked one of their songs to see if my theory was right, the song simply titled: Beautiful Bomb. The first 20 seconds told me pretty much everything: these guys LOVE Hair Metal! The singer even looks like Vince Neil (Motley Crue)! And the video looks like it was filmed at the Sunset Strip (or possibly Los Vegas). Seriously if I hadn’t found out that they only formed in 2001 in Finland, I would’ve guessed it was 1981 in Los Angeles California!

I was curious to see their other songs, simply to see if RL’s first song was meant to be a joke, and have the other songs be completely different. Not so much. Their next song I checked out was called Back to Paradise. Another blatant throwback. This time, its the 70s! It sounds very similar to Kiss’ I Was Made for Lovin’ You (especially the chorus). My theory of them simply being a joke band, was now being put into question. Maybe these guys were further beyond being a cover band too.

I will now just talk about one more of their songs, as I’m pretty sure you have gotten the idea of who RL are by this point. I also lied last paragraph, as Reckless Love apparently decided that it was time to cover today’s pop hits as well. Case and point: Hot. Now watch this.

I wish that I could say that these guys have something interesting in their music, but after 3 songs of blatant rip-offs, I don’t feel the need to explore RL any further. You are more than welcome to though.

PS: My next music post will be on a band that I actually like
