The Amazons – Mother
Well this is a cracking piece of grandiose rock and roll.
With a similar stuttering start to Audioslave’s Cochise, you soon realise quite how confident The Amazons are with this track. Because then you get that riff…
Big, dirty and rough enough to knock your teeth out, the song swaggers into gear and you’re hooked.
The lyrics intriguingly revolve around hypocrisy, religion and atonement, but he could be reading out the phonebook and that riff would still sound glorious.
