Feature: The Casanovas – Backseat Rhythms
Melbourne’s rock’n’roll kings The Casanovas reveal their fifth album, Backseat Rhythms, on Rubber Records.
Backseat Rhythms was mixed by legendary US producer Ron Nevison – a man who made his mark working as an engineer on The Who’s Quadrophenia, Bad Company‘s debut and Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti before going on to produce Thin Lizzy, UFO and Kiss amongst others.
The album is classic Casanovas; a pure distillation of the riff-heavy and melodic ’70s hard rock that they love, bottled into the aural equivalent of one of those minibar miniatures that always leaves you wanting more.
The new album is the first to feature new drummer Brett “Wolfie” Wolfenden who joined in time to tour the last album and who has previously played with The Pictures, legendary Masters Apprentices frontman Jim Keays and Todd Rundgren. Wolfie, who has joined frontman/guitarist Tommy Boyce and longtime bass player Damo Campbell, is helping The Casanovas take their sound to new levels.
The Casanovas latest album Backseat Rhythms is available to stream now via Rubber Records.
