Steve Rodger Roll like a river, crash like the sea, this is freakin' awesome. It's like only having ever watched movies on a 14" B & W portable TV and then going IMAX And every road I take leads me to your door. Favorite track: Road.

Harry Harrison Stubb is the love child of a Stone-Rocker and Blues Artist that has been raised on a healthy diet of Hendrix and Sabbath. This upbringing has provided Stubb with the tools necessary to provide earth pounding riffs that combine with a soulful overtone that will bring a tear to the most hardened Rocker’s eye. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. Favorite track: Scale the Mountain.

about

Superhot Records is very proud to bring you it's first release and the debut album by British psych rockers Stubb. The self-titled LP was cut to tape at Dropout Studios in South London with Tim Cedar of Part Chimp.

Like the guitar tone the live vibe on this record is thick, this is a real band playing real songs in a basement studio with minimal overdubs. Stubb contains 8 modern salutes to the early 70s with lyrical themes covering love, loss, the open road, women and the powerful force of nature.

This is much more than just a one dimensional record though. 'Crying River' featuring Malin Dahlgren from Swedish folk duo Polly Tones and the acoustic 'Crosses You Bear' provide contrast to the full on valve abuse of songs like 'Hard Hearted Woman' and 'Scale the Mountain'. For the most part however, this is a power trio doing what a power trio does best; warm fuzzy guitars, bass heavy songs, frantic solos and an excessive use of wah-wah.

After touring the UK and Germany with 70s rock preservationists Stone Axe in April 2011 Tony Reed (Stone Axe, Mos Generator) was hired for the job of mixing and mastering. Reed, who has recently finished recording the new St Vitus record, was the perfect man for the job having seen the band live many times and whose own band Stone Axe shares a similar musical heritage.

Superhot Records release number zero zero one will appeal to fans of Cream, Taste, Graveyard, The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
