Intensely focused, firey, livewire rock and roll with an insolent Finnish accent. Smack effortlessly filtered classic hard rock, garage, psych, glam, and punk sounds through Jim, Ig, Lou, and the Five back in an era when that wasn't at all hip or trendy or safe or bankable. At the time, NO ONE sounded like them. Hard as nails and raw as hell, but somehow hooky and tuneful amid all the ass kicking. The occasional mournful, haunting ballad was more like a funeral dirge. They wore their hearts on their sleeves, while bleeding all over you, your girlfriend, and your bathroom tiles. Smack is the early Rolling Stones to Hanoi Rocks' Beatles. Ugly and tough, but in a very sexy, very cool way. Smack had absolutely nothing in common with the bad-smelling elements of the LA hair-metal scene. Zero cheese factor. -darerock- (Smack Myspace)
