Band: BLACK NITE CRASH
Who: A psych collective started by Jim Biggs (vocals, guitar) twenty years ago
in Seattle Washington. The band had more than 30 members over the years.

New album: WASHED IN THE SOUND OF BLACK NITE CRASH

Jim Biggs: “This is the band’s fifth full length in nearly twenty years of existence, and
it looks to be the start of a period of more frequent releases as we work through our backlog of unreleased recorded songs, not to mention the surplus of new material we’re working on even now. As to the music, I’ve long been a proponent of the idea that all rock music should only be about god, girls and drugs (or god, boys, and drinking, or any combination of those themes, really), but it’s hard to look at the state of the nation and the state of the world and not say a thing or two about it.”

Turn Up The Volume: If you’re a psychedelic rock junk you’ll play this hell of a record
’til your ears bleed. You’ll get intoxicated with a transfixing mix of influences by masters
of the genre such as jangly hero Anton Newcombe and his Brianjones Town Massacre gang (Stupid Games / In Time / Failure), The Black Angels (S.P.M.U. / Stupid Games) and Heart (Tie
Me Down / Sugarwave
) when second vocalist Claire Tucker gets behind the microphone instead of maestro Jim Biggs. It’s all served with layers of mind-expanding guitars and hallucinogenic imagination.

Get the sonic picture? I thought so. Let Black Nite Crash
wash you to the bone with this new opus.
