Marvelous 3 - Readysexgo! - 2000

Marvelous 3 is an absolutely killer slice of pop/punk/metal. Marvelous 3 are essentially Cheap Trick retooled for the 21st century, although these guys also have the sex-and-drugs misogynist attitude of mid-'80s hair metal bands (which may explain why Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx makes a cameo here on an answering machine message). High class musical references abound, such as Def Leppard and Queen in some of the choruses, Material Issue and Green Day in some of the guitar parts, plus hints of '70s glam (which may explain why "Cigarette Lighter Love Song," co-written with David Bowie, has a chorus which sounds suspiciously like "All the Young Dudes.")

Brilliant album, I really like Butch's style of song smithery!

When you mention Cheap Trick and Material Issue in the same description, I gotta check it out.

Butch didn't co-write with Bowie. He Recognized the "Young Dudes" riff and acknowledged The original writer!
