“Kung-Fu Cocktail Grip“, by Hog Molly originally released on CD only, was recorded and produced by the legendary Jack Endino. Some thirteen years later after the seminal recording was released, it has been recently remastered by Tad Doyle himself breathing in new life, sonic girth, and a much needed low-end enhancement and treatment. KFCG is fifteen songs with unique lyrical content ranging from angst-ridden tales of the horrors of living and dying in the modern world, to growing up in rural North America leaving broken families behind, to discovering the meaning of being truly alone in an ocean of people amidst depravity, crime and psychosis.
The music is honest, stripped down, feral ugliness that is undeniably a dirty, noisy, amped up amalgam of working class riffs and rhythms. Songs of blood sweat and spit. Currently, you can get all fifteen songs in any format except vinyl and cassette from the Hog Molly bandcamp here for a limited time for a ridiculously low price.
Hog Molly would wring every last sweaty, greasy, electrifying, brain-blasting note out of their voice boxes, guitars and drums. Formed in 1999 HM toured the US West coast and Midwest before disbanding in late 2001. Hog Molly’s members were Tyson Garcia on bass (formerly of Willard and Ditch Witch), Marty Chandler on guitar (formerly of Panic and 50 Paces), Jason Jacobs on drums (formerly of Monster Truck Driver) and Tad Doyle on vocals/guitars (formerly of TAD, H-Hour and Red Set).
This will be the last week to get Brother of the Sonic Cloth “demo 2009″, and “Fires Burn Dim in the Shadows of the Mountan”, tracks for FREE. Then they’re gone for good. Get it here while you can.
There is also a collaborative one off project with Tad and Pegadeth from BotSC doing a song with a couple of friends from Los Angeles who also play on the song. Written and recorded by Tad in a basement in Seattle in 2009 at the first location of Witch Ape Studio and mixed and mastered in 2012 by Tad at the new location of Witch Ape. Here you can download this track as well for FREE. This track will also be removed in the next week so get Astral Communion while it is still available. Enjoy.
