Saxon - "Problem Child" (AC/DC cover)

I'm hot
And when I'm not, I'm cold as ice
Get out my way
Just step aside, or pay the price

What I want, I take
What I don't, I break
And I don't want you
With a flick (of) my knife
I can change your life
There's nothing you can do

I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child, yes I am
I'm a problem child
And I'm wild

Make my stand, no man's land
On my own
Man in blue, it's up to you
The seed is sown

What I want, I stash
What I don't, I smash
And you're on my list
Dead or alive
I got a .45
And I never miss

I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child, yes I am
I'm a problem child
And I'm wild
Just runnin' wild

Just watch your step

Every night
Street alight
I drink my booze
Some run, some fight
But I win, they lose

What I need, I like
What I don't, I fight
And I don't like you
Say, "Bye, bye" while you're still alive
Your time is through

I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child, yes I am
I'm a problem child
And I'm wild
I'm a problem child (and my mother hates me)

You've got your troubles, I've got mine

Κυκλοφορεί ήδη ο καινούριος δίσκος των Saxon. Καινούριος, αλλά χωρίς νέα τραγούδια. Οι Βρετανοί metallers "έβγαλαν" album με διασκευές σε τραγούδια που τους ενέπνευσαν και τους επηρέασαν. Ανάμεσά τους και το τραγούδι των AC/DC "Problem Child" από τον τρίτο δίσκο της Αυστραλιανής μπάντας "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" που κυκλοφόρησε το μακρινό 1976. Το παράδοξο είναι πως ο συγκεκριμένος δίσκος κυκλοφόρησε στις ΗΠΑ το 1981 (έναν χρόνο μετά τον θάνατο του Bon Scott).

Δελτίο τύπου: «'𝐏𝐑𝐎𝐁𝐋𝐄𝐌 𝐂𝐇𝐈𝐋𝐃' is taken from 𝕊𝔸𝕏𝕆ℕ's 𝕀ℕ𝕊ℙ𝕀ℝ𝔸𝕋𝕀𝕆ℕ𝕊 album, which is 𝕆𝕌𝕋 ℕ𝕆𝕎 via Silver Lining Music.

British Heavy Metal legends Saxon have delivered a full-roar-fun-down set of covers with their latest album Inspirations, which drops an 11 track release featuring some of the superb classic rock songs that influenced Biff Byford & the band.

Inspirations was recorded at Brockfield Hall near York in the UK, which was built in 1804 and holds the largest collection of paintings by Yorkshire’s impressionist artists - the Staithes Group. For Byford, recording Inspirations all together within such a rich historical environment was a major ingredient of the project.

The warmth and feel of Inspirations had so much to do with being together in this magnificent place and doing it ‘old-school’ style,” Byford explains.

This is how many bands back in the day -including some of the ones covered here- made such great albums, so it just felt really good to be able to do this somewhere like Brockfield Hall.

The results speak for themselves. From the super-charged melodic romp of The Beatles’ ‘Paperback Writer’ to their freeway mad take on Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Stone Free’, Saxon show their love and appreciation with a series of faithful, raw and ready tributes.

Maintaining a firm eye on the old school way using Marshall cabs, Marshall amps, real drums and produced by Biff Byford with Jacky Lehmann recording and mixing, Saxon approach the likes of Motörhead’s ‘Bomber’ (with added whistle!), AC/DC’s ‘Problem Child’, Black Sabbath’s ‘Evil Woman’ and a raucous Deep Purple’s ‘Speed King’ with refreshingly warm, unfiltered, “vintage” sounding renditions.

We wanted to do an album based on our influences, the songs and bands that inspired us to write what we did and still do,” continues Byford, “and it was also interesting to see what my voice could do as I haven’t sung many of these songs before.

Byford does, indeed, take on some new vocal challenges, which he duly smashes on the likes of Thin Lizzy’s ‘The Rocker’. The net result is that whether cranking up a heavyweight take on Led Zeppelin's ‘Immigrant Song’ or throwing down AC/DC’s ‘Problem Child’, Saxon does a supreme job of entertaining both themselves and their audience throughout Inspirations.

"We didn't want to change any of the songs too much, just play them more like Saxon,” concludes Byford, “and we also think it’s very important to have -and share with the fans- some fun in these dark times."

You want even more proof of the validity behind that statement? Wrap your ears around their sparkling take on Toto’s ‘Hold The Line’ and consider Saxon’s Inspirations a mission accomplished. Saxon’s Inspirations is available on Vinyl, CD, digital formats and limited edition D2C products.»
