Babyjane - Make It Sick (Produced By Michael Wagener & feat John Corabi)


Babyjane, Australia's most explosive hard rock act, have come out of the rusty gate with all guns blazing…
Andy Smith (no singer comes closer to the swagger of Jagger and the presence of Plant than THIS one); John Gerasolo (rock's next guitar hero -- forget the Top Hat); Paul Judge (a moody Sid Vicious who can really play the bass) and Nik 'Animal' Kats (the bombast of John Bonham meets the terror of Tommy Lee) unleashed their debut scorcher 'Are You Listening' in 2011. Mixed by famed German/American producer Michael Wagener (Metallica/Janet Jackson/OzzyOsbourne /Extreme), it's hard rock at its absolute best (including 'can't stop singing it' classic Can You Keep a Secret?) Rousing support gigs with Skid Row's Sebastian Bach in 2008 and Iron Maiden's Paul DiAnno in 2010 left the word on everyone's lips  that Babyjane 'are the band to watch'. Recently, they've gone from strength to strength – securing airplay on independent American radio, glowing reviews for AYL, regular  rotation on WA's number one radio station 96FM and over 5000 Youtubeviews of their video single (Are You Listening).
Now, Babyjane have stepped it up a notch. 11 track second album, 'Make It Sick', was recorded in Nashville, 2012 with Michael Wagener taking the reigns from start to finish - the end result is what one industry-insider has described as "the most balls-to-the-wall rock album since Guns n' Roses Appetite For Destruction", with one-time Motley Crue/Union singer John Corabi making a screaming guest appearance on the title track. Collectively, the band are big fans of Motley Crue's self-titled 1994 album, on which Corabi appeared.
Listeners will hear a grand meeting of the old guard handing the rock n' roll torch over to the new, collaborating on a storming punk-infused riot. 'Nu-Sonic Plague' is a riffed-up timewarp of big choruses and a nineties pessimism, a direct assault on the auto-tuned banality of modern pop music. New York Queen/London Whore is a rip-roaring biographical account of the infamous Nancy Spungen while Bad Woman is an introspective, spiralling trip down the lonely lane of lost love and shattered happiness, with wailing guitars and melancholy vocals. On the other side of the coin is the album's dark horse Underground Detention, a perilous journey through the hellish world of heroin addiction and Somebody Up There Hates Me – ironically the album's most commercial and upbeat track.
#1 rock website Blabbermouth.com made Babyjane front-page news three times (covering Corabi's appearance and previewing the album) – they are the only Perth rock band do have done so. Featuring a sound only a world-class producer can muster, hugely hooky tracks, and a well-oiled 4-piece band behind it, Babyjane are ready to step up to the big league. They continue to ride the rock n' roll train, writing songs that will see light on the inevitable third album and getting their musicas far and wide as possible in an age where it's all acquired at the click of a button. Road -tested and set for world domination, Babyjane are just gathering steam.
