Maximum Overdrive continues the road rage put to record initially drawn upon with ‘97s “Overdrive,” and features 18 blazing tracks of adreno-rock classics to pump your blood and burn your bike tires to! In addition to “Overdrive,” the new record’s filled with outtakes, rare cuts and cool uncloaked collaborations with former scenesters like Radio Birdman’s guitarist Deniz Tek on the opening “Do The Pop” and “More Fun,” plus Cherie Currie of The Runaways for the age old “Cherry Bomb.” The ‘Cheetahs capture the essence of Hard Rock’s dirtier days, circa ‘73 – ‘77 when the likes of The Dolls and Iggy’s Stooges ran rampant as well as the sleeker stylings of showmen like the outback’s Birdman or occasioning a Power Pop collective fronted by the likes of Cheap Trick.

They’ve borrowed and followed the true-blue style of packing power chords, sharp hooks and live rage into rebel anthems and were conceived to be all of those things and have excelled at them; outlaw rock for the outdated and outcast with a voice of discontent and dirty fingers – or comparatively speaking today, The Supersuckers, Zeke…

Maximum Overdrive builds on the original and goes heavy on the additives to rope in plenty o’ screaming ‘Cheetahs fans while amping up the hard rocker rebel in general from dead generation, glam and gutter, to modern day wind-aided glory on the street punk level or Scandinavian scale.
