TURN IT UP SELECTION ! Seven Psych(o) Tracks…

TurnUpSelection-800

Psychedelic havoc spiced with some mad, weird and/or twisted hooks/lyrics/noise is definitely what fills my earphones constantly. And there’s a lot of amazing psych(o) stuff out there by artists who change into freakish characters once the light is out and the music is on. Hard to make just one selection. But we gotta start somewhere before the clock strikes midnight. So here’s 7 psych(o) dope tracks that will make your daft neighbours come banging at your door and begging for more. Turn It Up !…

PIANO WIRE Produces Dark Psychosis Rock From The Soul – Here’s ‘I’LL KILL YOU…

TrackDay1

21 July, 2015…

PianoWire3-800

Band: PIANO WIRE

Who/home: new band formed by Andy Huxley and Sym Gharial from the ashes of barbed wire noise rockers The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster based in London…

Track: I’LL KILL YOU – from their mini-debut 8-track/ 24 minutes album ‘The Genius Of The Crowd’ named after a Charles Bukowski poem !

Score: As someone described brilliantly, Huxley & Gharial used to fabricate ‘dark psychosis
rock
‘ back then. Today they still create ‘dark psychosis rock’ but this time it sounds like coming from their soul, not from the aftermath of taking too many illegal substances.

‘I’ll Kill You’ is definitely not a love song, a troubled soul is badly hurt and somebody
is seeking painful revenge. Yet the overall tenebrous colored sonic drive is strangely catching and caused immediately repeats on my earphones. The clenched rhythm,
the vicious chorus and the threatening vocals are the keys to this new, rad score.
Goodbye 80s Matchbox, hello Piano Wire.

Let’s roll…

Here’s the excellent mini-album ‘The Genius Of The Crowd’ in full – don’t be afraid…
