SONG REVIEW: Lee Bains III and The Glory Fires, Total Destruction To Your Mind

TITLE: Total Destruction To Your Mind
BAND: Lee Bains III and The Glory Fires
LABEL: Alive Records
RELEASED: October 30th 2012

An upbeat, lively Alabama group are about to release a new single with a whole load of old-fashioned happiness. Total Destruction To Your Mind is a cover with the original credited to Swamp Dogg but this version is guaranteed to brighten up your dull autumnal day. They’ve already gained success in the States with their album There Is A Bomb In Gilead and performed a series of live shows, currently touring the south coast. Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard told NME:

“I love watching Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires. Terrific performers and The Glory Fires are relentless. The musicianship is incredible and I’ve learned a thing or two watching the way the guitars interact with one another.”

The song is a real throwback to 70s style American rock and the carefree vibe is so relaxing. If you love a good party, you’ll love the melodic riffs and retro summer vocals mixed with a touch of gospel. The rolling drums and catchy chorus make it ideal for dancing your worries away and it’s not a million miles away from the classic 60s anthem Johnny B Goode.

With the simple lyrics and heaps of quintessential Americana, the title of the song resonates as you twist and jive your way back in time. The current revival of rock and roll has come at just the right time for these guys and just one listen of the single will have you singing it for hours after. Nothing says “just have some fun” like this track!
