Lucyfer Sam - Lucyfer Sam - LP

Lucyfer Sam - Lucyfer Sam LP
(The spark burst from night gatherings and shared stages, from a story of friendship and common experiences in years and years of rock'n'roll (mis)adventures, and made a kind of underground supergroup featuring members of Ray Daytona and Googoobombos, Killer Klown and Cannibals. Here's their debut album!!)
Area Pirata 13.00
Quant:


Sometimes it happens that the "best minds of a generation" join together to create a new project to express their common passions. That's the case of Lucyfer Sam, under whose monicker we can recognise a series of characters who have been hanging out around the Italian underground scene in the last twenty years.

They're used to play in the seediest parts of towns, stay out all night, jump on the boards of shabby stages in front of a handful of fans only for the pleasure - a damned, obscurely sinful pleasure - of preserving the authentic tradition of rock'n'roll. They're light years far from the glossy magazines' covers, small clubs of indie-rock fans, winks at marketing social strategies.

The spark burst from night gatherings and shared stages, from a story of friendship and common experiences in years and years of rock'n'roll (mis)adventures, and made a kind of underground supergroup featuring members of Ray Daytona and Googoobombos, Killer Klown and Cannibals.

Ray Daytona (guitar) and Rosie (vocals and bass) come directly from Ray Daytona and Googoobombos, the most explosive Italian garage-surf band. Rev Jungle (vocals) and She-Hellcat (vocals and farfisa) have always been the pumping heart of Killer Klown, a band in activity since the Nineties. While Tony Rathskeller (drums), well known in the Eighties garage scene, comes from the legendary Mike Spenser's Cannibals, kings of UK garage trash.

This peculiar band aims to celebrate a sound that, in part, is far from that of their respective bands in a sort of tribute, not even so hidden, to their idols like Velvet Underground, Gun Club, Dylan, Cramps, Birthday Party, Stooges, Contortions. And the list could go on. Among their sources of inspiration there's also the genius of Syd Barrett, whose song Lucifer Sam (recorded by his Pink Floyd) was "stolen" - and mangled - to become the name of the band. Which also is the title of this record: 11 punchy and inspired songs recorded and mixed on a 24 tracks with only analogue instruments at T.U.P. studio in Brescia by Brown Barcella and Pierluigi Ballarin. A sly old fox like former Screeching Weasel, Justin Perkins, who worked with Paul Collins and Tommy Stinson (Replacements), worked on the mastering at Mistery Room in Milwaukee, while the artwork on cover is signed by Riccardo Bucchioni.

What else? Put the needle on the grooves of Lucyfer Sam, open a bottle of good bourbon, turn off the lights... and let the party begin!

REVIEW

Bertrand Tappaz - 11/04/2016 - VOIX DE GARAGE GRENOBLE

Evidement au vu du nom de ce patronyme je m'attendais à un groupe de jeunots qui sont sous (la trop vaste) ombre tutélaire de Syd Barrett...Il n'en est rien ! Et c'est en commençant à prendre des notes pour rédiger cette chronique que j'ai compris pourquoi. En fait Lucyfer Sam est une sorte de super-band avec en son sein : le couple qui est le moteur de Ray Daytonas & the Googoobombos, plus le couple qui est à la manœuvre au sein de Killer Klown depuis de nombreuses années, additionné d'un batteur qui a sévit dans pléthore de groupes dans les 80s notamment les Cannibals. Des gens qui ont de la bouteille, et du talent à revendre et qui fusionnent dans cette nouvelle entité qui est bien plus qu'un side project de plus ! Musicalement ils carambolent leur Garage Punk cryptique avec du Swamp Rock, un peu de Death Rockabilly (ça m'a rappelé les moments les plus sombre de Hank Ray & the Raymen, ce qui n'est pas un mince compliment sous ma plume). Et on peut retrouver là-dedans des éléments qui nous ramènent au meilleur moment de la scène Trash Rock anglaise des early 80, avec quelques moments que ne renieraient pas les Primevals, Tav falco, les A-Bones, voir même les Earls Of Suave, et même les Flaming Stars. Bref vous l'avez compris une musique intense, variée, sexy, sale, humide parfois, qui colle à la peau comme un linge moite! Riche aussi avec cette voix bien profonde est vaste qui est fort soutenue par celle des deux dames. L'orgue Farfisa sort souvent du registre purement Garage Punk et va jusqu'au Sleaze Rock et même au fond du Rock'n'Roll primitif. Bien plus qu'une excellente surprise!
