BIKES - Matt LP
Imagine a party on Doctor Moreau's island where the dance band is made up of four giant chain- wielding, beer guzzling, leather-clad parrots... suddenly, out of nowhere, Keith Richards shows up high on his father's ashes and joins them for an encore. After hard touring around the globe, Berlin thug-rockers BIKES finally found the time to lock themselves into their East-Berlin rehearsal space and record their next album, tactically avoiding the sophomore slump. We're more than honoured to bring you their new, and yet their best effort! It's chock full of hits, equally influenced by both kinds: Rock AND Roll, guaranteed to move your bones! Songs about bars, being locked up behind bars, motorcycles – things you can relate to! Steady, no-bullshit caveman drumming! Vicious bass! Thuggish guitars with some wild monstro/mongo Chuck Berry riffs thrown in! That's right! No wimpy shit here! The return of pub-rock? Maybe? I hear they drink beer for breakfast! Record comes housed in great John Pasche inspired artwork handmade by the band!
