Lineup and Details for Lixx and support from The Hellfire Club
UK Sleaze Rockers LIXX has teamed up with The DDR Music Group & Metal Legacy Records finally unleashing the reissue of 'Loose On You' as well as six bonus tracks in early 2019. This album has never been released on CD in any capacity so to call it rare would be an understatement.
After a run of succesful 2019 dates the lads are set to return to do another special gig at Dreadnoughtrock....poss less a few strands of hair supported by THE HELLFIRE CLUB who have been awoken from their slumber yet again.
Metal Hammer and Raw magazines reported the band as ‘front runners’ in the UK music scene’, with journalist Alan McRorie proclaiming that ‘Lixx are dangerously close to the realm occupied solely by The Rolling Stones.”
It wasn’t long before the Fast Forward organization signed the band up on the strength of the buzz they’d created, and by late 1987, Lixx entered Pier House studios to record their ‘Loose On You’ mini-LP (mastered at Abbey Road) and set about touring up and down the country in support of said magnum opus. A gig in London prompted Metal Hammer to claim that ‘infamy was only a few months away’ with songs such as ‘In For A Riot’ ‘Drive Me To Ruin’ ‘Freeloader’ ‘Plain Jane’ and ‘Hot Shot’ already being proclaimed as classics, whilst Kerrang predicted that ‘in another six months they’ll be spreading their own particularly virulent disease right across the land,’ stating that ‘the rock renaissance is well and truly under way.’
The press was similarly effusive with praise for the LP. Kerrang’s Richard Heggie saw 'Loose On You' as ‘one of the most accomplished indie debut albums you will ever encounter’ with the review comparing Lixx to Kiss, Guns n Roses, Faster Pussycat, Mama’s Boys and Bon Jovi. Metal Hammer claimed the band shared DNA with Wolfsbane, the Quireboys, and Zodiac Mindwarp and concluded their review saying that they heard ‘half-a-dozen reasons why Lixx could be at the front of the UK hotlist’.
