Thursday 21 September 2017 – Margin Walker Presents Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires

LBIII

Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires (Birmingham, AL)
http://www.thegloryfires.com/

Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires are an Alabama-based rock band whose music is informed by the swagger of classic Southern rock, the energy and attitude of punk, the intelligence and personal lyrical stance of indie rock, and the deep grooves of R&B.

“Dereconstructed, the band’s second album, ponders Southern identity in a welter of cranked-up guitars, bristling drums and rasping, hollering vocals. It’s pandemonium with a conscience.” – New York Times

“A terrific album.” [4/5 Stars] – The Guardian

“If there’s one tradition Bains and the Glory Fires unquestioningly uphold, it’s the Friday-night custom of burning down the house.” – NPR Music

“It’s a dirty-sounding album, full of scuzzy red-line guitars and overdriven vocals, but even all that speaker-busting grit doesn’t hide the alluring melodies Bains threads among the mayhem.” – Paste

“Bains likes to rock. He and the Glory Fires wrap his commentaries, ruminations, and invective in what he calls “real Alabama rock ’n’ roll,” a raging burnpile of garage and Southern rock, dirty, supercharged blues and soul, Stonesy groove, Crazy Horse howl, and punk slam. With these songs, Bains surely wants to make you think; he surely will make you shake.” – The Boston Globe

Friday 15 September 2017 – Cake Rangers (Album Release) * Alone On The Moon * Swamp Goat

CakeRangers

Cake Rangers (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/cakerangers

A modern day carpetbagger wandered south and discovered that three Texans, like him, were receiving messages from Kim Il-sung’s ghost. Join us.

What others have said;

“I began receiving messages from Kim Il-sung at some point during the late 90s. He told me that I no longer needed to worry about making good music because, with his dying breath, he had set forth a series of events that would conclude with the formation of Cake Rangers. The Eternal Leader informed me that they would rock so hard that the global demand for rocking would be satisfied by them alone. That’s why most of the music I have released since then has kinda sucked.”-Billy Corgan

“Grumble? Grumble grumble grumble. Grumble grumble grumble GRUMBLE GRUMBLE CAKE RANGERS RULE!!!!!!!”-Phil Anselmo

“Not as good as the rumored concept album that will consist of Thom Yorke’s farts and the sounds Stephen Malkmus’ washing machine makes when its set to full.”-Pitchfork Media

“Cake Rangers? Never heard of them, they sound like a fruity dance troupe. And who the hell are you? How did you get in my house?”-Willie Nelson

Alone On The Moon (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/pg/aloneonthemoonband

Alone on the Moon is a video-obsessed, instrumental post-rock/stoner/post-metal band from Houston, Texas. The group formed in 2012 as a collaboration between Joe Lovchik (guitar) and Seth Johnson (bass). Joe and Seth met through mutual friends and found they had the same vision for a heavy, instrumental sound. Nathan Smith (drums) was quickly recruited to fill out the jam sessions, and the trio began writing. Soon, the band made a unique impression in their hometown with their epic songcraft and psychedelic projections. Guitarist Ahmad Saad joined Alone on the Moon in 2015, adding a rich, new layer to the group’s heady outpourings of distortion.

Alone on the Moon recorded its first demo EP in 2015 at Big Door Studios. The group has headlined concerts throughout the Greater Houston area, delivering deep and potent grooves accompanied by mind-bending lights, lasers and videos.
