Take a part of rock ’n’ roll eroticism, a part of punk insolence and a part of psychedelic peregrination, pour in a good dose of fuzz and when it starts sizzling add the necessary pinches of feedback & screams. Name the concoction “Ignition Time” and file under The Psykicks.
The six novice wizards took their unction with their prior releases. Now, after employing for some time a number of ancient alchemical techniques inside the steamy laboratories of Feedback Sound Studio and Sweetspot Studio, under the guidance of grand magister Alex K (that’s right of the Last Drive fame) and with the aid of Sound Effect Records, they have the pleasure to finally present the result of their sonic quest that comes with the warning that the mixture might turn out to be explosive.
We advise you to adjust your amplifier at stereo and at the maximum possible volume and we wish you to enjoy the ignition with all of your senses.
The Psykicks are a rock ’n’ roll band whose influences are mainly the Stooges, the MC5, 70’s punk, 60’s garage punk and surf along with their 80’s –90’s revival and bands such as the Velvet Underground, Radio Birdman, the Wipers, Sonic Youth and the Last Drive. Their live set ranges from 3-minute garage & motorcity punk explosions to long, fuzzed-out improvisations.
