ELECTRIC BOYS: Funk-o-metal-carpet-ride (CD)
Personnel: Franco Santunione guitars, backing vocals Conny Bloom lead vocals, guitars, sitar Niclas Sigevall drums Andy Christell bass, backing vocals

The Electric Boys are a funk metal band founded in Sweden in 1988, which enjoyed a cult status in Europe at the end of the decade.
They signed for Polygram and scored a local Swedish hit with the single “”All Lips and Hips”” in 1988. This early version of what would become perhaps the band’s best-known hit also appeared that same year in America on the soundtrack to the movie Feds.
In 1989, the band’s debut album Funk-O-Metal Carpet Ride, including a revamped version of “”All Lips and Hips”” was a success in Europe, and they picked up a strong following in Britain, where, as well as headlining small clubs, they supported Thunder. When headlining Newcastle upon Tyne, Riverside club, the band were joined on stage by the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis who were performing in the same venue at around the same time. The following year, the album was released in America, where they also became moderately successful, thanks to the singles “”All Lips and Hips”” and “”Psychedelic Eyes.””

1. Psychedelic Eyes

2. All Lips n’ Hips

Electrified

a funky, groove oriented almost-masterpiece (hence the name). The definitive “”sleeper””. Sometimes the ones that take a while to appreciate stay with you the longest. It’s been over ten years, and I still listen to these guys.

a video review:

Let me tell you a story about a sweet hootchie-coo
Who’s a dancin’ on the table right in front of you
She works all day in her old man’s store
But she don’t get enough, she wanna earn some more

Daddy’s little angel’s tongue in cheek
So by the end of the week, she close the boutique
Change her name, that’s part of the game
While her daddy sits and wonders who’s the hell to blame

Do you wanna dance, do you wanna dance here
Do you wanna dance here, wanna take a chance tonight
Do you wanna dance, do you wanna dance here
Do you wanna dance here, wanna make romance tonight
Oh, oh she’s in the spotlight! She’s all

Lips and hips
She knows how to use ’em to make you flip
Lips and hips
And she gets ya with a wink of a fingertip
Lips and hips
You can tell that she knows how to give a kiss
Lips and hips
When she’s found the target, she never miss

Now did I ever tell ya about the tattoo on her breast
She’s got a tattoo on her breast, tattooed by the best
It keeps rockin’ from the East to the West
And she don’t try to hide it by the way she’s dressed

When she comes walking straight up to the table
Like a boy in a cradle you begin to shake
It’s not only the time that gets hard for you
When she whispers in your ear you’ll…

Do you wanna dance, do you wanna dance here
Do you wanna dance here, wanna take a chance tonight
Do you wanna dance, do you wanna dance here
Do you wanna dance here, wanna make romance tonight
Oh, oh she’s in the spotlight! She’s all

Lips and hips
She knows how to use ’em to make you flip
Lips and hips
And she gets ya with a wink of a fingertip
Lips and hips
You can tell that she knows how to give a kiss
Lips and hips
When she’s found the target, she never miss

Kiss

Do you wanna dance, do you wanna dance here
Do you wanna dance here, wanna take a chance tonight
Do you wanna dance, do you wanna dance here
Do you wanna dance here, wanna make romance tonight
Oh, oh she’s in the spotlight! Uh!

Lips and hips
She knows how to use ’em to make you flip
Lips and hips
And she gets ya with a wink of a fingertip
Lips and hips
You can tell that she knows how to give a kiss
Lips and hips
When she’s found the target, she never miss

Lips and hips

========================================

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant,
This was a band that was a welcome relief from the over abundance of the hair bands of hard rock that had made the scene a bit stale. Guns N’Roses had taken over and had begun to stir it up a bit, but were bent on self destruction and all those other bands were clamering to change their sound to make it sound “”modern””; a band like Electric Boys comes out and makes a funky, mellow, and even heavy album that just fills in a gap. It’s sorta a mix of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and some other bands like Kings X, Saigon Kick, and even maybe Extreme to name a few that kinda snuck in to fill in time before the Grunge movement took over. Sadly this sound faded all too quickly. This fits more into an alternative rock format that maybe a band like Jane’s Addiction might have been kings of.
From the opening of “”Psychedelic Eyes””, and the anthemic stripper theme “”Lips ‘N Hips”” which sounds kinda cheesy by todays standards I admit. But later on it get’s funky, and it get’s so heavy and melodic you can’t resist. It just sounds like they are having a good time making the record. “”The Change”” just lifts you up, a great song if you are indeed heading for a change in your life perhaps. So many great rock songs on here. Groovus Maximus is a pretty good CD also, and I’m curious to hear the newest “”Freewheelin'”” , but for now this will do for me.

========================================================

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy metal funk
Great vocals,great music,songs all different,if you like Glenn Hughes you will like this band!.I would not class this as a hair band their music is more talented than that.I never heard of them before and took a chance and I was really pleased; that I ordered the other 2 cd’s of theirs. They play heavy metal,melodies,foot stompen,funk metal, that you will play the CD over and over again!

========================================================

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Aerosmith,
This album sounds like what Aerosmith might have become if they’d moved to Scandinavia instead of doing Permanent Vacation and Pump. Conny Bloom isn’t quite the wild and crazy guy that Steve Tyler was and is, but this was a promising start. “
