Written by Dizzy Reed, Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy, The Almighty, Black Star Riders) and Del James, This Don’t Look Like Vegas, features Warwick and Mayuko Okai on guitar, with fellow Gunner, Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses, Psychedelic Furs, Thin Lizzy), bringing the guitar solo. Mike Dupke’s (W.A.S.P.) on drums, Mike Duda (W.A.S.P.) on bass, Reed on lead vocals, piano, shaker and tambourine, with backing vocals from Nadja Reed, Chela Johnson and Del James.
“While initially undercut by prominent keys, This Don’t Look Like Vegas quickly settles into a swaggering slice of classic rock, led by big riffs and Reed’s own touchstone lyrics of dark shades, flexibly applicable gambling metaphors, shotgun weddings, fire, fury, brimstone etc. It’s all scenes of beautifully filthy bar band blues, the stuff of Sunset Strip nights, endless whiskey shots and a hedonistic heaven where, as Reed eloquently puts it, ‘nothing is certain”.
