ARNO DE CEA & THE CLOCKWORK WIZARDS' new album.

" Retrofuturisme volume II " is the fifth and new album by Arno De Cea & the Clockwork Wizards.
It is now available on bandcamp and on vinyl in Europe released by A Tant Rêver Du Roi / Les Productions Del L'Impossible / Calico Records and very soon in the U.S.A by Otitis Media Records.

Formed in 2008 on the French “Silver Coast" by three musicians involved in the Surf, Noise and Garage Rock scenes (The Irradiates, Stef & Arno, The Taikonauts, Antena Tres, Shunatao…), Arno De Cea & The Clockwork Wizards try to set Surf Music in the modern age by adding Punk Hard Core intensity and Noise Rock inventiveness.

To set the things clearer, it's like having Dick Dale swapping his guitar for a flamethrower while being backed by a robust, frenetic and tortuous rhythm section.

Throughout the years, those "Brutal Surf Music" purveyors used to tour around the European continent from Lisbon to Berlin, Alkmaar to Beograd, without forgetting Livorno to eat an ice cream by the Mediterranean sea.

2021 sees the band releasing its fifth album, "Retrofuturisme volume II " (EU: ATRDR/Calico Records/Les Productions de l’Impossible – USA: Ottis Media Records) to complete a rich discography also loaded with some split records and several compilations appearances.

The trio here reveals its interest for some musical freaks like Sun Ra or Chrome contributing to set the band a little more apart from "traditional” Surf Music, and showing its ability to have an unusual rhythmic and melodic approach to the genre.

All that was once resumed by a member of the audience assisting at one of their shows : “Well, it is the most well organised sonic bloody mess I have ever experienced in my life!” Fredrik Thordendal.

Electric Heaters release new live EP!

image

A new live EP from Boston's Electric Heaters.

Live at the Burren was recorded in the Back Room of the Burren Pub in Somerville, MA on January 10, 2020. It wasn’t meant to be a time capsule, but it ended up being the last big show we did before the pandemic. Full of live energy and the Heaters’ characteristic mix of tight grooves and occasional chaotic noise, it’s a document of a carefree band in a pre pano time. I dug out the files a couple months ago, and realized, this isn’t half bad! So warts and all, ladies & gentlemen: The Electric Heaters.

  1. Taco Volcano—A latin tinged spy caper. Too spicy for your taste? Cha Cha Cha!

  2. Copley Soul—Stomp the floor to this Boston style dance number.

  3. Bowling Green Massacre—Late nights. Devious Schemes. Alternate Facts. Was it all just a dream?

  4. Pouncy Flip—A little bit country and a little bit psychedelic freak out!

  5. Nayang Beach—Time to relax on the chillest beach in all of Thailand. Subai, Subai.

  6. Shutter Island—Like it’s noir namesake, all is not as it seems in this tune.

The Electric Heaters:
Matt Heaton-Guitar
Dave Piper-Bass
Jared Seabrook-Drums

Available on April 2 at Bandcamp, everywhere else on April 15.

The Biarritz Boys play 'live in Brazil'

A couple of weeks ago The Biarritz Boys did a live-set for the Primeiro Campeonato Mineiro de Surfe. Not in sunny Brazil alas, but from a shitty basement in rainy Holland. We had fun anyway! Two originals and two covers (Los Straitjackets and The Penetrators).

Enjoy!
