Lecherous Gaze - Lecherous Gaze 12 inch
From the smoldering ashes of punk rock powerhouse Annihilation Time, which festered for a year and a half in a downtown Oakland flop house noted for once housing bands like High on Fire and Drunk Horse, rises the Lecherous Gaze. Steeping themselves in the Hendrix-tripped guitar-god worship of bombastic ‘70s rock and the primordial ‘60s rockin’ rawness of Chuck Berry, Graham Clise and company’s hardcore of Flag and Sabbath worship has congealed into a sticky sweet nug of potent hard rock hash. New front man Lakis Panagiotopulos’ soulful timbres, inspiring comparisons to the legendary larynges of Joey Ramone and Glenn Danzig, layer over the punishing grooves of Chris Grande and Noel Sullivan, as mad axe man Clise shreds his Marshalls to their breaking points. Spending 2010 in a pupal stage of cooking up their jams into a frenzy inducing stew of awesomeness, Lecherous Gaze have transmuted into the perfect beast to carry rock and roll into the 2012 Armageddon.
