London based band, the dead pirates, have surfaced an EP of the kind of Rock n’ Roll that is sorely missing from today scene of bloops & beeps. Formed by the visual artist McBess & his brother Ben, this 5-piece group is rekindling the flame of stoner rock & good ole rhythm & blues. The FAT EP leads in with a driving beat & a barrage of steady eighth note guitar assaults on “the fingers dance” before diving into the 2 part “Roadtrim” suite that is full of stomping, burning riffs & Rhodes piano melancholy that slow builds to an angsty climax.
Pick up the FAT EP on their site, thedeadpirates.com.
