Diesel Witch

Here's a recent review: Yup, this is Diesel Witch. If you haven't heard of them before, don't worry: short of that ONE gig I caught of theirs waaay back in August 2008, I'd barely heard of them either! They rarely perform live, at least not that I'm EVER aware of (thanks in no small part to the fact they're utterly crap at promoting themselves) only to be made all the more annoying as a "live band" when you finally DO catch a gig of theirs, only to discover they're nothing short of brilliant..

The Fleshtones

Often tagged as garage-rock revivalists, the Fleshtones mix the fuzz-guitar and Farfisa organ sounds of that genre with rockabilly, '50s and '60s R&B, and surf into a potent retro stew the group likes to call "Super Rock." The group formed in 1976 in Queens with vocalist/keyboardist Peter Zaremba, guitarist Keith Streng, bassist Jan Marek Pukulski, and drummer Bill Milhizer and aimed to return rock and roll to the simplicity and unself-consciousness of the '50s and early-'60s. (The group was often joined on-stage and in the studio by sax player Gordon Spaeth, who passed on in 2005.
