The Flaming Sideburns

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I’ve long maintained that the best rock’n’roll in the world comes out of Scandinavia. I don’t know how or why, but for some reason these folks can kick serious ass. Screaming out of Finland today we have the legendary Flaming Sideburns. Oddly enough, only one member of the band sports sideburns, and they don’t seem flaming at all.

Sounding like the abused lovechild of MC5 and New York Dolls, and looking like a gang of colorblind angry cowboy drag queens when they hit the stage, these Helsinki natives have been killing the scene for ten smoldering years, with a new album every year and a cool name to prove it.

I don’t know much about them, but who cares, it’s good ol’ rock’n’roll.
In lieu of a bio here’s a shooter recipe I invented:

    The Flaming Sideburns

1/3 shot Sambuca
1/3 shot Overproof Rum
1/3 shot amaretto.

Stand back, ignite, burn your face off.
