The Big Wheel Stunt Show is another band that I discovered through the ever awesome Classic Rock Magazine.They hail from the mighty Tacoma, Washington. Cheetah Milque is their second album. They play 70′s inspired hard rock with some blues and influences that appear to come from such legends as Mountain, Cream, The Who, and Nazareth.
Cheetah Milque starts off getting right down to business. There’s no slow into or long instrumental, the album gets off on the right foot by getting right into the vocals. From there it doesn’t stop. Cheetah Milque is full of catchy riffs and lyrics. The songs are the types you don’t forget as they’re just as catchy. The guitarist is some of the best I’ve heard and the solos that lie withing a few of the songs are just outstanding. Just listen to “Red List, Blue List.” Each song is different and has it’s own identity. You’re not going to hear a borrowed riff between any two songs, just as it should be.
Cheetah Milque is one of the breaths of fresh air as far as music is concerned. What I mean by that is it’s fresh, original, it doesn’t try to imitate someone else and it’s repeat worthy. Personally it’s one of those albums I can always turn to when I’m not sure what it is I want to list to. Listen for yourself below and you’ll see. Currently the only known way to get the album is through Bandcamp and no word on their first album. I’m sure if you like what you hear and you let the band know, maybe they’ll offer up their first. Either way, you shouldn’t pass this one up.
