With an opening vibe very similar to a Led Zeppelin or Jane's Addiction song, depending on your perspective, of course, this debut 7" from Crazy Chief lets you know right off the bat just where this crazy musical train is going, and that's straight to the land of hard hitting Guitars, with lots of Sex, Drugs, Rock N' Roll, sick solos galore, and a little bit of Dungeons & Dragons thrown in for good measure. The record sounds great, and turned up loud it sounds even better. Produced and Recorded by Brian Garth (Black Camaro), and it pretty much sounds how you'd expect a record that was recorded inside of Cowtown Guitars to sound, which is incredible. The guitars are thick and overpowering, the vocals atmospheric, the bottom end loud, and the drums sit in the back pocket nicely and push things along. There's only 2 songs on this thing, and the title song is, I think, about smoking PCP and playing Dungeons & Dragons, which is something my D & D friends and I used to do with the Local gang bangers / cholos who would come over to my Dad's house to hang out in the garage and party with us while we rolled the dice and fought monsters all night long. They never really understood how we were able to 'see' what was going on without being on acid, but when they were dusted out of their minds, they saw everything and loved D & D... heh heh heh The B-side to this 7" is a smokin' cover of the Stooges Down On The Streets... Yaaayy! :-) Kudos to Crazy Chief for staying true to their DIY roots by paying for this release out of their own pocket, instead of virtual begging on the Internet via Indidgogo or some shit like that - it's how bands are supposed to put their music out. Younger bands take note. Cool little piece of vinyl from Crazy Chief. Definitely worth checking out. There's only 500 made, all on black vinyl, so grab yours quickly before it sells out and you're paying top dollar for it on eBay.
