Already since 1999 the Finnish guys of IconClan are touring through Europe and are celebrating every evening their famous Rock `n Roll in the venues. With this in mind, the new album of the sympathic trio is no surprise: a party compatible mixture of Rock `n Roll, Pun and Hardrock comes along with texts, which are very easy to sing along. Prepared like this, the next shows may come for sure – what could go wrong when you are armed with an album like ``Rock N` Roll Rodeo``? You don`t believe me? Then sit back, close your eyes and imagine you were in a small venue, where are sweat drops from the ceiling. And now listen to tracks like `Bridges burn`, `One and Only` or `Adios`. And? How does it feel? You see, I am telling no lies!
