ESTRELLA

This is Classic Eighties Rock but before you run for the hills, this isn't The Darkness but an Aberdeen band carved from granite, not soft southern chalk.


Taking their blueprint from Guns 'N' Roses, this five-track is fun without being camp.

She's Got It has a great chorus, guitar solo and lyrics. Woman's Touch has a down-tempo feel of AC/DC. www.estrellarocks.com (http://www.estrellarocks.com)

but yes http://www.estrellarocks.co.uk/ or http://www.estrellarocks.com do not work


well done estrella;)

You do realise if you win that competition, you won't be "the best band in the world"

Also... good to see you keep your Thurso connection :D

Yip, I've just had two teeth taken out especially for the occassion. I quite like mad friday in the sense that its become the only day in the year where the 'more mature' adults try to drink the younger adults under the table, and fail in spectacular style lol.

It's also the most over rated day of the year... apart from Christmas day and New Year's Eve.
