The Detonators from Melbourne Australia have released their long awaited sixth CD. Recorded live at guitarists Paulie Bignells Hailstone Studio over two days and all songs in two takes, the album comprising of 14 original songs doesn’t vary from the proven Detonators bluesy roots rock n roll based formula. The songs all originals written by band members cover a variety of topics mainly from the bands observance of people and their actions during their constant touring and gigging since 1997.

The title track Monster in a Box covers the results of too much drinking out of the cheap wine cask, Second on the list is Tough Stickers an over view of the Tattoo situation sweeping the world. Sober and straight a blues shuffle follows up with a report on the difficulties of giving up drinking. Can’t wait to see you is next covering the story of a criminal saying he’s on the straight and narrow, but is he? It aint that hard shows what you can do if you put your mind to it including strapping a rocket to the roof of your car. Best band in the land, lots of bands make the claim this song covers the result of a fictional altercation between a couple of them. She Detonates my rocket is a rocking girl chaser. Scat Attack a slapping, slap back rockabilly song about a personal accident some of us may have had at one time or another. Up next is Nightloss, sometimes dreams get a bit real that’s all we’ll say. Health Cigarettes are a new invention, cigarettes that can be good for you be careful though! Bump Bump Bump a swinging journey of boy meets girl and what happens next. Line and tackle, after the chase sometimes you can lose the lot. Grogula a new kind of monster, he’s pretty straight until he indulges in a drink then hell breaks loose. Last up is She’s Mad, the results of a one man party at home.

“We hope you enjoy our new Cd as much as we enjoyed making it. We had a ball and lots of laughs doing it, we’ll see you at a gig or a festival somewhere, come up and say hello. We’ll be at the bar probably!” – Doghousedave
