‘Home’ album by Suze DeMarchi
Reviewed by Rob Stewart
Suze DeMarchi was gifted with a voice that was tailor made to traverse the tight rope extremes of mellifluous melancholia through to gut wrenching rock n roll…all without the aid of any namby pamby safety net!
Never before has Suze’s range and dexterity been best displayed than on this new LP titled ‘Home’ The album cover that features two raised arms crossed at the wrist with one prominent word Home tattooed proudly upon it, is further proof of Suze’s belief on the importance of home…As it is indeed her own wrist that carries her constant reminder.
The album features 11 tracks that all embrace the albums theme of home, all tracks are covers of songs that are special to Suze. Along the way Suze has even managed to round up some very special friends to collaborate with. There’s Jimmy Barnes, Diesel, Shane Nicholson, Tex Perkins, Russell Morris, Mick Skelton and the brilliant new generation of rock chick Dallas Frasca. The collaboration with Dallas is my standout track selection as they simply tear a rip snorting new hole into the proverbial of the Clashes track Safe European Home. Rock on!
