“Dave, tell ‘em about your wrestling record”
“Three wins, sixteen defeats. Beat the same kid twice. Lost to the state champion in six seconds”
Clearly, the Turbo Fruits are not athletes. They are, however, a rock n roll band and one that could likely take your state rock & roll champion to the mat in less time than it takes to cue up a record. What the Nashville, Tennessee quartet lack in physical adeptness they make up for in wild abandon and unfettered debauchery; in buzzsaw guitars and pummeling, primal rhythms. And they STILL look good in a unitard and head gear. Okay, that might not be true – we haven’t tested that theory yet, there wasn’t quite enough beer, there may never be enough beer – but they are definitely one of the most visceral rock groups in America, as is evidenced on their new album Butter.
The Chelsea Kills
The Chelsea Kills are Philadelphia Garage Rock Music. Formed in August of 2010 from the ashes of the Philly rock band "Dope Sick Girls", the Chelsea Kills have recorded 1 full length album since the conception and gone through member changes. The current lineup provides a hypnotic bass and drum built backbeat under a spell of distorted guitars weaving through raw vocalizations of teenage angst with singable hooks and impressionable imagery. Recalling the sheer power of a 70's rock and roll band and the pop infused psych rock of the sixites; The Chelsea Kills play a modern rock devoted to the necessities of the beat and the hook presented in the rawest, most heartfelt manner possible in this day and age.
The lyrics wind through slums of love and through the daily anxieties and textures of modern teenage nihilism, but all centering around the power of youth. Love them, or leave them alone, The Chelsea Kills are here for your listening pleasure.
