Panic in the streets of Essen. Yeah, all the dj’s who don’t play Prima Donna songs should be hanged. Because Prima Donna guys are true king rockers: they know how to rock and, most of all, they know how to roll. Further proof was their last European show at Panic Room in Essen, Germany. The venue was packed with fans and friends from all around Europe and the front row was… well, drunk and wild.
Did they play I Don’t Want You To Love Me, Demoted, Soul Stripper and all their hits from After Hours? Of course they did. And they did it like there’s no tomorrow. Did they play Sociopath, Let The Games Begin and Puta Te Amo? Hell, yeah! And they played also an awesome version of Broken for all of you, broken hearts. Their latest album title is Bless This Mess, right? The stage was a real mess: crazy go go dancers, weirdos powered by booze and debauchery.
That’s what rock and roll is about: fun. At Panic Room in Essen, there was sweat and beer falling from the ceiling, maybe some feathers too. If you are in love with punk rock and sleazy rock ‘n’ roll – that kind of sound brought to us by 70s Stones, New York Dolls, Ramones, Johnny Thunders, Hanoi Rocks – and you don’t like Prima Donna, there is something wrong with you: killer guitars, bang-bang bass, bam-bam drums, reckless piano and hellbound sax.
Anyway… Prima Donna are alright even if you don’t like saxophones. Because David, Erik, Lights Out, Aaron and Kevin are the real deal. Raw power: what you see is what you get. In Prima Donna world there’s no time to rest, it’s always letsgetfuckedup o’clock. Ok, if you are reading this review, that means you are a stray doll and you maybe know everything about Prima Donna records, shows and other shit so… See you soon.
