Lester divides he's time between music and radio hosting, fanzine writing and talent scouting at Tornado Ride Records.
His efforts in the niche led him to become subject of research for the thesis in Sociology of Dr. Giulia D'Alimonte "Glam Rock: Games of Masks and Performance" at the University of Padua and value him the mention at the Ramones Museum and the Museum für Kommunikation both in Berlin.

REVIEW

Laurent C - Veglam 20/10/2014

LESTER has been releasing records since the early 00s Euro glam punk wave, when his band The LANDSLIDE LADIES (later known as LESTER & The LANDSLIDE LADIES) used to share stages with international acts such as FASTER PUSSYCAT , BACKYARD BABIES or The VIBRATORS ... More recently, LESTER hit European roads as a bass player for The BOYS HONEST JOHN PLAIN , and since our Italian friend always has something to cook for us, he's now back under his own name LESTER GREENOWSKI to offer us his first solo album wrapped up in a great looking colourful digipack.
On "It's Nothing Serious Just Life", LESTER mixed all his favourite styles, from glam punk ("Trail Of Graffiti", "It's Gonna Be Wrong", "Ritalin Baby", "Pussy Galore"...) to catchy sparkly power pop ("Such a Shame" or the CHEAP TRICK ish "Angela (A Space Odyssey)") and 70s glam rock'n'roll ("Electric Blue" and its cool sax hooks. The quality of the songwriting is impressive as usual, songs like "Beautiful", "Carrie Nation" and its New Orleans touch, or "Say Bye Bye" could have been 70s classics, and the ending song "Bittersweet" is a powerful anthem full of melancholy.
If you'tre into The RAMONES , early KISS , CHEAP TRICK or AMERICAN HEARTBREAK , then big chances are you will love this album, and don't trust the over, LESTER is not ready to shut up yet!

Non conoscevo bene Lester e quando l'ho sentito la prima cosa che ho pensato è stata... ma è italiano? E per secondo ho dettoma questa non è roba underground... questo è quello che ho pensato, in effetti lo stile, la grande voce, l'energia del RNR che esprime con musica e voce è difficilmente catalogabile nella nostra penisola e nel RNR di stampo underground. Poi leggo nelle note che ha alle spalle svariati tour europei e ha diviso palchi con gente come Vibrators, Dickies... ed è proprio ai Dickies e alla loro musica che mi riporta più alla mente, anche se in modo più "elegante". Dal 2011 è impegnato come bassista, cantante e compositore nel rilancio di Honest John Plain e partecipa a ben sei tour europei.
Oltre a questo fa lo speaker radiofonico, fanzinaro e coordinatore artistico di Tornado Ride Records. Un uomo nella musica a 360 gradi per 365 giorni all'anno. Le quattordici canzoni sono tutte del livello descritto all'inizio...ma è roba underground? Non so ma rock certamente.

Lester Greenowski is a new name to us but he has actually been releasing records since the early 00's and used to record with his band the Landslide Ladies. He has also toured with great bands like Faster Pussycat, Backyard Babies and The Vibrators. More recently, he has being touring as the bass player for The Boy's Honest John Plain. All of which isn't a bad hint of the sounds that await you on this album.
The album opens in serous kick ass rock n roll fashion with "Trail of Graffiti" which is a great mix of punk and glam or Glunk' as it's affectionally known as to the fans of this genre. If that song isn't sleazy enough for you then check out the ode to one of the best named Bond Girls "Pussy Galore".
Lester does take us out of the gutter with "Such A Shame", and it's a quite brilliant power pop sounding number. It's a brilliant tune and is followed by the equally uplifting "Angela". We are soon back into sleaze rock n roll territory though with "It's Gonna Be Wrong", a song which recalls early Wildhearts at their pop best. "Electric Blue" with its use of saxophone and confident swagger recalls the legendary purveyors of sleaze punk, Hanoi Rocks.
We're given a bit of a breather on "Little Lovechild" which is more easy going but still a highly infectious pop/rock number. That appreciation of a good pop tune continues, but in a slightly more robust way, on "Beautiful". Although, you get the feeling that with songs like that one and the catchy "Say Bye Bye" and "This Goes Out To You", that Lester really does appreciate the beauty of a well written pop chorus. They're the sort of songs that if they were given a bit of a shine and delivered by The Vamps, they would go straight to No1 (and rest assured that IS a compliment!!)
However, don't go away thinking that it's all sweetness and light though. There is still some room for a bit of punk rock intensity as shown by tracks like "Ritalin Baby" and "I Wish I'd Never known You". Although it all ends with another real pop/rock gem in the shape of "Bitter Sweet".
This really is a great album which maintains a level of quality, and indeed fun, from start to finish. Mixing a sense of rock n roll sleaze with a feeling for a pop melody, without falling in to the trap of throwaway' is damn hard. Indeed, only a few bands like the aforementioned Wildhearts and their related side projects have been able to deliver it consistently (although the sadly forgotten Rich Rags also achieved it on their release!). Lester Greenowski has managed to hit the sweet spot on many of the tracks on this album. It's an album that manages to maintain an infectious level of both passion and fun throughout and will be loved by many from the first time they hear it.
