Bass Drum Of Death in Dordrecht and Arnhem this weekend20-08-2013
This weekend Bass Drum Of Death will return to Europe. This Spring they did some shows in advance of their new record out on Innocative Leisure. This time they bring their self titled record and do two shows. First Sw!tch Festival in and around Energiehuis in Dordrecht (Aug. 24th) and Krachtstroom Festival in Arnhem (Aug. 25th).
Bass Drum Of Death is Mississippi's John Barrett, a punk-fired garage tinkerer handy with all the tools one needs to jury-rig some tasty rock nuggets. "Crawling After You" feels like a full-band affair nonetheless, and it hails from his latest album, recorded by Barett in between last year's spate of tour dates. The new song is a reverb-soaked fuzz-bomb that find our host to paw his way back into the lift of a former acquaintance. BDOD's 2011 debut "GB City" has a lot to offer, but the new album is louder, gnarlier, catchier, and crunchier. It was also heavily influenced by nasty old proto-punkers the Pagans, the Seeds, and the Sonics.
