Better late than never, Melbourne’s the Casanovas will get back to doing what they do best – rock’n’rolling under lights, on a stage, in front of an audience – when they launch their much-acclaimed fourth album REPTILIAN OVERLOARD at Richmond’s Corner Hotel on March 6.
Released back in August, Reptilian Overlord was the Casanovas’ first album in five years and arguably the best-reviewed album of their 20 year career. Produced by iconic Oz Rock engineer/producer Mark Optiz (AC/DC, Angels, Chisel, Divinyls etc), and featuring singles including “Hollywood Riot” (which was appropriately picked up by legendary LA DJ Rodney Bingenheimer) and “Lost and Lonely Dreams”, the album was described by Melbourne’s own preeminent rock booster James Young (owner of the world famous Cherry Bar) as, “It’s like they’ve captured all my favourite rock acts – Cheap Trick, Stones, Kiss, ZZ Top & AC/DC, and crammed them all into their own jar of Vegemite.” Indeed it captured the band’s soulful rock’n’roll groove like never before and drew attention from around the world:
