“Tonight we’re gunna play all the songs we know by us!”
Bursting on to the stage as supposed openers for Alter Bridge, the LA 4 piece stole the show at the Palace complex, from the minute they ripped into Supersonic Sex Machine. Yes. That’s what it’s called.
The band, comprising frontman Michael Starr, guitarist Satchel, the brilliantly named bassist Lexxxi Foxx and, introduced as “The best drummer in the band…” Stix Zadinia lead fans through such masterpieces as Fat Girl (Thar She Blows), Asian Hooker, and It Won’t Suck Itself. They’re love songs, mostly.
As a crowd singalong though, it’s hard to go past Community Property with an 1800 strong choir belting out the refrain “My heart belongs to you, but my cock is community property”. It’s this heartfelt lyricism that weaves its way so beautifully through all of the Steel Panther’s songs. Or something like that.
