New Band To Burn One To: Foghound
New project with former members of Sixty Watt Shaman, Junkrod, National Razor, Roscoe Stamford and The Expotentials. We like Gibson, Marshall, homemade guitars and amps, distortion and overdrive, fat bottom end, 26" kicks, chopped bikes-cycles-trucks, dirt tracks and all things rock n' roll.
Stoner rock meets purple metal flake.
Foghound are from Baltimore, Maryland and include:
Bob Sipes (Roscoe Stamford, Circle 9, Mudwheel)
Chuckrock Dukehart III (The Expotentials, Sixty Watt Shaman)
Geoff Freeman IV (Roscoe Stamford)
Dee Settar (Down Goes Frazier, National Razor)
This is a decidedly East Coast take on left coast stoner rock, only the muse of the Southern California desert has been replaced by the streets of Charm City. Think Fu Manchu if you swapped the surfboards for Harley-Davidsons. There are only three cuts available at this time and they're about as raw sounding as if Kyuss were to pilot the dune right into your garage, but take my word for it, Foghound is a band worth keeping your eye on. Check it.
