Swamps – Kitano Homare – New LP
Imagine a band with Moe Tucker of the Velvet Underground on drums, Chuck Berry/Johnny Ramone on rhythm guitar and Link Wray on an acid trip on lead guitar. Bass? They don't need no stinking bass. Vocally many of the tunes were a mix of Lux Interior of the Cramps meets Cookie Monster-Specially when the vocals were done through the guitar's pickups as they were on many of the tunes.
Raw and primitive caveman thud comin' atchya care of Japan's most savage guitar stabbers...Swamps. Boasting an impressive thunderous 3-guitar attack, these guys brandish some serious riff-heavy, six-string firepower that totally takes ya back to the rawer, trashier side of the Crypt Records back catalog. Think Oblivians, Dirtys and Gories with a creepy, slimey Cramps-ey slither all harnessed by a demented lead screamer possessed by Hasil Adkins, Elvis and Lux Interior. A rockin' riff-heavy mess bursting with fuzzed out, fucked up destructo-hits including the most wacked 'n cracked Devo cover yer ears will ever hear! LP cover painted by Stan Zenkoff of The A-Bones
