The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Elvis Deluxe.
In 2002 four long-time friends (including even some blood relatives), who had been involved in different bands (mostly HC/post HC/rock stuff like Ahimsa, Coalition, Afraid Of That Day), started to jam together playing what they had a great affection fortheir entire lives: ‘70s-influenced stoner rock.
In 2003 they recorded a demo which turned out to be pretty popular among the slowly growing breed of their fans. Soon they became one of the most active Warsaw bands, crossing all genres, and being present at different types of shows from punk rock to rock’n’roll to hardcore and rocking the nights out like crazy.
Every once in a while they hit the road to gig Poland, Lithuania, Germany, ending up in some Czech clubs, making a nice soundtrack to bar fights.
Easy going dudes took it easy. It took them a while to record their very first full length, but when they did (at Serakos Studio, Warsaw, spring 2006) it turned out to be really worth waiting for. The record is called "Lazy” and well... it really is.
The dudes have charisma and have the skills and even though they’re taking it easy, they take it seriously. Many years of friendship and jamming together made them only tighter and hungrier for good shows and road adventures. They will roll slow and if you stand on their way... well, you can be sure to roll with them.
My 2 Cents:
These heavily 70's influenced stoner rockers from Warsaw, Poland prove once again that rock and roll is truly the universal language. Elvis Deluxe melds juicy laidback riffs and tight fuzzy grooves to make any stoner rock fan want to chill out and go for the ride. Hell yeah! -Reg
The band is currently working on a new CD due out sometime this year, but in the meantime the band is offering their 2007 album "Lazy" for free download at this location.
