The Lords of Altamont + The Scaners + Thomas Mascaro
[THE LORDS OF ALTAMONT]
Rock’n Roll Fury – US
The Lords of Altamont bring forth raw rock and roll fury birthed from the ultimate end to the era of peace and love. What was billed to be the “Woodstock of the West “, the infamous Altamont Free concert on December 6th, 1969 was highlighted instead by heavy drugs , motorcycle chains and brass knuckles and later punctuated with shoving matches and fist fights. This palpable sense of bawdy foreboding resulted in four births, four deaths and extensive property damage.
Rock’n Roll – FR
Punk, 2077. Dragged from a burnt out spaceship in the scorching heat of the Benidorm desert to a neon-lit Chinese disco on the dark side of the moon. THE SCANERS . French gonzo-synth punks and intergalactic scuzzball house band. Miscreants from a future generation. Clad in white from head to toe, bug-eye shades peer out through a dirty water fog. They play a blistering set of songs that will propel, or had already propelled, them through the atmosphere on a fix of adrenalin in 2019. Is it the past or the future, for the present seems far away? Their second album, put simply, ‘II’, is a breakthrough moment, when the crawling Lo Spider once again takes control of this paranoiac, extra-terrestrial-abducted and abducting quartet and bounces the finished 12 doses into the hands of garage master Jim Diamond for mastering. The result? Another bombastic, swirling garage acid trip through the stratosphere. Insane flights in the spiked punch bowl that is our galaxy.
C’est avec la formule ‘one-man band’ que cet artiste creuse un peu plus dans la tranchée du rock minimaliste, enregistrant ses morceaux sans limite instrumentale, mais forcé de revenir à un arrangement brut lors des prestations live. 2018 voit naître la version trio du projet pour accompagner un nouvel LP intitulé ‘MAGIC RUBBER GLOVES’. Désireux de s’entourer d’une section humaine, Thomas fait appel à Jennifer (Basse/Toxic Frogs; Hurricane Riders) et Arthur (batterie/Barrio Populo).
