Picks and Pans Review: Out for Blood

Lita Ford

Former Runaways bandmate Joan Jett should be flattered by the extent of imitation here. This collection of sonic sludge and caterwauling, however, has none of the saving grace of Jett's rock-hard smarts. Instead, Ford thrashes away humorlessly on her guitar, aided and abetted by bassist-producer Neil Merryweather and drummer Dusty Watson. If you don't get the idea from her Jett-black garb, Ford flatters JJ even more boldly by cribbing from her I Love Rock-n-Roll with the silly Rock 'n Roll Made Me What I Am Today. About the only thing to say after listening to this vampirish derivation is, shame on rock.
