Oh God. Lock up your daughters, it's the 'Dora. Well, not quite actually. Good as they maybe at making sneeze-and-you-missed-it pop tunes (with enough grunt from Matt "The Pout" Browne, and enough hair from the drummer to be classed punk) they are hardly as dangerous as having Ace Freley babysitting your 13 year old kid are they? Basically if they keep on believing they are the fucked-up, sexed-up and glamed-up generation I will get slightly irate. Friday Night Explodes is a step too far. They've slowed it down for that brooding, tense, testicles in a slipknot and heroin on their mind kinda feel. You want to know what it really sounds like? Muse, trying to bump and grind. Now, as much as I love Muse's comedy opera, the thought of watching Matt Bellamy shaking his booty…we don't want to go there do we?
I like King Adora really, but I would love to see them make the music talk and not try and release ANOTHER single off the album through their image alone. This song is a B-side at the most. It just fails to perform musically, but with a fanbase watching their awful video and dying for another dose of fucked-upness, I suspect it'll do ok. But, like all those 14 year old terrors touching themselves to Smoulder and the like, they'll find the music just won't be long enough to satisfy them…Ironic on so many levels!
