Do you remember rock n roll radio? When a bunch of young upstarts could bash on drums and blare power chords and scream until their lungs got sore?
Well, that’s what you can expect from Frankie and the Witch Fingers’ new album, ZAM. It starts with the intense fuzz and extended riffs of the nine-minute Dracula Drug. Yeah. A nine minute opener. These guys are not fucking around.
Not a single song is rushed and not a second is wasted. Garage rock at its finest. RIYL Ty Segall, The White Stripes, and 1970s garage rock.
