LORDS OF ALTAMONT "The Wild Sounds Of The Lords Of Altamont" [12" LP]
2017 - Psychedelic/Surf Rock from United States
A hammered four-stroke beat like a twin cylinder engine running on idle, a roaring guitar riff revving up the rpms of the iron-built motorcycle-inspired band, then the fresh and insisting breeze of a Farfisa organ whispering "let's ride", and a heavy bass greasing up the reliable crank and rods of that authentic rock'n'roll machine, and there it goes ladies and gents, the mighty Lords Of Altamont combo! Riding hard on backyard-built, loud pipes, and rigid frame indestructible raw choppers, the band left their garage enlivened by the year of 1969, right at the crossroads of the Summer of Love and the birth of punk rock. Fueled up by the MC5, the Stooges, and the Chambers Brothers, to name a few, the pack follows Jake "The Preacher" Cavaliere (vocals, organ) on his uncompromising rock'n'roll journey ; Dani Sindaco (guitar), Rob Zimmermann (bass), and Steven Van Der Werff (drums) along with their front man are now spreading out The Wild Sounds Of Lords Of Altamont, their latest record, around the planet! Through fads and fashions, either on wax or on stage, the Lords can take you back to this era of freedom and rebellion with their hi-octane tunes. The gang has been already rocking the world for 17 years with spectacular performances, firmly run-in by five solid stainless records and they're now fine-tuned with this new release of ten powerful late-sixties tracks which manage to sound fiendishly contemporary. Our era needs the Heavy Psych Sounds label and the Lords real bad: nine new original stunning songs plus an arrogant and totally mind-blowing Howlin' Wolf cover ("Evil Is Going On"). Let's welcome the LA combo back and hit the road to rock'n'roll with the "Savage 4". Carefully produced at Kitten Robot Studios in LA by punk rock legend Paul Roessler (Screamers); analog-mastered by Dave Schultz at D2 Mastering Lab.
