Hailing from Columbus, OH, MOUNT CARMEL is a straight-up blues rock power trio whose self-titled debut released via Slitbreeze was described by the label as delivering “PETER GREEN-era BLUESBREAKERS, CREAM and TEN YEARS AFTER in their sound.” The tunes are raw and invigorating slabs of 60s/70s blues rock and are so genuine, it’s hard to believe it was created by three young, Midwestern dudes. STRYCHNINE strip their lo-fi aesthetic down to its dirtiest and rawest sound and the band's garage and surf sensibilities feed as much off classic pop songwriting as they do psychedelic riffing and extended jamming. THE BIONIC CAVEMEN open here tonight, these fellas hearken back to ye olde days of rock & roll when it was noisy and dirty and recorded without them fancy overdubs and such.
