OutsideInside / Old Head split 12 inch
Machine Age Records returns with a new split 12 inch EP featuring four explosive jams from the Pittsburgh underground. The bands are new , but the people behind them have behind some of the city's most notorious projects in the past 15 years.
Outsideinside kicks things off with their smooth and funky take on classic rock. With the tight rhythm section of Jim Wilson and Panfilo DiCenzo backing singer Dave Wheeler (of Carousel fame), "Dreamless" is a perfect tune to blast while driving on the parkway with the windows down in the summertime. "Misled" is a back to basics, no frills rock 'n' roll cut with a blistering guitar solo and a heavy backbeat.
Old Head add a raw psychedelic twist, calling to mind early Sub Pop but with a modern aesthetic. "Riding A Machine" showcases singer Phil Boyd's (Modey Lemon, TM Eye, Hidden Twin) pop side, while the drumming of Jason Kirker (Modey Lemon) underpins the driving intensity of the tripped out and epic visions of "Zama". The band also features Mike Layton and BIll Wehmann (Frizz) holding down guitar and bass duties for a Pittsburgh all star ensemble.
