"Gina" (Cellar Records; 2004) 

Reviewed by Snidermann


It took me a few tracks and some minor attitude adjustments to get on the same page as Court Jester, but after careful deliberation, I found myself liking the band. 

Court Jester is good old rock'n'roll about fast women, Jack Daniels and guns. That is one volatile combination and, in this instance, it works. The music has plenty of grit, however, sometimes the vocals tend to be a bit poppy and slow and took some getting used to. If you like down to earth, kick-ass 80s rock'n'roll that sounds best played live at your local bar, then this is right up your alley. 

Court Jester: James Azrael - guitar and vocals; Dan Boehne - guitar and vocals; Erick Koenig - bass; Bob "Birdman" Brady - drums; James Miller - keys. The band also has three very beautiful women as "Official Court Jester Models": Allison, Stephani and Jules.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
