Vains of Jenna: Reverse Tripped

Posted on the 26 May 2011 by Hctf @hctf

Vains of Jenna

Retro Eighties hair metal band Vains of Jenna won't pick up any awards for originality of jaw dropping musicianship. Formed in Sweden the band moved to LA and managed to get themselves heard on Jackass. They dress the part, raiding the wardrobes of Aeromith, Mötley Crüe and Guns 'n Roses. They got a s new singer in 2010, who has a FM friendly classic rock tone of voice.

Their latest album an Reverse Tripped is an all-covers collection of tried an true songs. They stick close to the original arrangements wrapping them in blanket of AOR, except for a slowed down Smoke On The Water. They choose Cee-Lo Green's Fuck You as the lead single, by-passing superior interpretations of Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, or California Dreaming.

Rverse Tripped is the kind of album that's get picked up after the show. By no means essential, it's a souvenir of a hard working, crowd pleasing band. These are song that can anybone sing along with, no matter how many beers they had. One final note: It's pretty lame to to end the album with a radio friendly Forget You. If your wardrobe says "Fuck You", stick to it."

Vains of Jenna:
Jesse Forte: lead vocals, piano, guitar, percussion
Nicki Kin: lead guitars, vocals, piano
Jacki Stone: drums, percussion, background vocals
JP White: bass, background vocals
