Lady Gasoline (2010)
About the album
Lady Gasoline is Chris Singleton's second album. Released in June 2010 through IRL (Damien Dempsey, The Wonderstuff, Royseven), the album received rave reviews from Music Week, Q Magazine, The Dubliner Magazine and was featured on BBC Breakfast. More 'powerpop' than Chris' first record, Twisted City, the album features musical contributions from Chris' live band, The Distractions: Andy Fleet, John Gibbons, Stelios Kalisperides, Zane Maertens and Ben Woollacott. Many 70s artists (especially glam-rock ones) influenced and inspired this album, with Chris tipping his musical hat to Lou Reed, David Bowie, The Sweet and T-Rex amongst others.
"A post-punk power-pop belter with stylistically diverse crafted songs that trade on wit as well as melody…Chris could rock planet earth" – Dubliner Magazine
"Casting a vast net covering everything from baggy to glam to electro-pop, Singleton's sprightly power pop and lyrics ensure he's never less than genial company" - Q Magazine
"With a fantastic production that soundchecks everyone from Lou Reed to Madchester, Lady Gasoline is full of musical depth and packed with sure-fire radio hits"– Music Week
"Lady Gasoline is unashamedly in thrall to the past, littered with faithful evocations of raunchy glam-rock, pulsating electro-pop and even the odd ballad that would probably shift millions…This is a fine album. ****’ – Sunday Business Post
"Sharp pop that spans the ages from Lou Reed through Talking Heads and David Bowie to Neil Finn and his favoured Beatles." – The Daily Express
"Cracking, commercial tunes." - Irish Independent
