It's been a while since The Captain has made it down to the Stoned Village,* or I mean, Sleeping Village, what's the difference? I've been up on Saturn 9 laying down some new track for the world to decimate themselves to.
Here we have The King's Pistol. These fools don't even know what they've gotten themselves into with the likes of me. The bass player, Andy, seems to be scared of my threats, and is worried I'm going to come to his work. He gave me the address, the silly bastard. Why would you give The Decimator of Worlds your location, doesn't he know I have a space ship?
Now, onto the music. "Who Do You Love" reminds me of Bo Diddley and George Thorogood. This one definitely has a whole new meaning and sound. It's like The Doors hooked up with Chuck Berry, and Billy Idol for some epic Rock n' Roll remake. The rhythm section is really holding it down on this track. Did I mention the guitar player plays the same guitar as me? And he tears it up quite nice. Sax and organ add a big fat sound. As you may not know, I love that Hammond.
Lost in the city starts with some tasty guitar and sax licks, into a sweet bass fill. I'm really digging the bassline for this jam, and the rhythm section is just crushing it once again (these dudes got some chops) with the grooves. These are the sounds of the classics with a new edge, honed perfectly.
They only sent me 2 tracks, as to not release too much information about their upcoming vinyl release. I'd say this EP is gonna be a great buy. Your money won't matter for much longer anyway, spend it while you can. The end is near.
*I'd comment on how misinformed this statement is...but, considering the repercussions make me shiver in fear of the Captain's planet-destroying prowess, I shall abstain. - Ed.
