WEREWHEELS COVER

Great to have one of the contemporary masters of psychedelia back at KSE for his THIRD album with us, and it’s a monster. The power-duo of SIR PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE and DAWN AQUARIUS will nail you to the wall with the molten higher-key psycho-delic lava flow on this live collection culled from the band’s triumphant tour of Japan earlier this year. And if that’s now enough, the duo is joined by Acid Mothers Temple guitarist Kawabata Makoto on one track, and truly, this album is worthy of AMT. In fact, I met Steven “Plastic Crimewave” Krakow in person for the first time at an Austin show where Plastic Crimewave Syndicate were opening for Ya Ho Wa 13 AND Acid Mothers Temple–small world, isn’t it? This is an album that’s loud even at low volume and it should satisfy anyone who demands the deepest and heaviest of higher-key psychedelia, without being in any way revivalist, unlike the laughable neo-psych bands one sees (and hopefully does not hear) playing “psych” festivals in Austin. Do I really need to say anymore? As they said about the movie PIECES, “It’s exactly what you think it is!” This won’t be around long, so grab your copy now….ordering info is above. And while you are at it, check out our other offerings (see below) for the best in experimental music and contemporary poetry….the poetry chapbooks are perfect reading while tripping on the sounds of WEREWHEELS….

Chicago-based Werewheels consists of two dark cosmic forces: Sir Plastic Crimewave (Secret History of Chicago Music, Plastic Crimewave Syndicate/Sound, Guitarkestra, Galactic Zoo Dossier magazine, etc) and Dawn Aquarius (Herbcraft, Cursillistas, Brainshadows, Acid Ankh comics, etc). The duo opens clogged mind passages using guitars, keys, treated voices, and machines, creating a unique transcendent wall of sci-fried sounds–inspired by gnarly biker and horror film soundtracks, bad trip krautrock, and psychedelic synthpunk. Werewheels has played dream gigs with legends like the god of hellfire, Arthur Brown, legendary 70s pagan-folkers Comus (at a concert in London), Suicide mainman Martin Rev, and Acid Mother’s Temple on an extensive tour in Japan. In the windy city they have played at the Museum of Contemporary Art and at the University of Chicago (playing before a screening of “The Warriors”!) Also locally, WW has opened for a diverse array of artists like seasoned weirdos Ono and Vyto B, plus other contemporary acts like Wrekmeister Harmonies, Malachai and Curtis Harding. After an appearance on the limited 2LP UK compilation “Death, Decay and Renewal” alongside luminaries like Edgar Broughton, Mark Fry, Nick Garrie, Cherrystones, Alexander Tucker, etc, Werewheels have recorded their own full-length LP due out soon on Sunstone Records (UK), featuring guest appearances from Jon Seagroatt of Comus/Red Square, and Acid Mother’s Temple’s Kawabata Makoto.
