Dr. Crazy Release Debut EP Demon Lady; Members of Mos Generator, Groan & Trippy Wicked Come Together in New ProjectPosted in Whathaveyou on July 3rd, 2014 by H.P. Taskmaster
So you’re telling me that you’ve got an intercontinental heavy rock band with dudes culled from the ranks of Groan, Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight and Mos Generator? Well, yeah, sign me up.
Thus arrives Demon Lady, the debut EP from Dr. CRAZY. The classic heavy-minded power trio have a simple enough mission in terms of their good-times style, but on their first four-track outing, listening to the boogie groove of “Powerzone” or the dopey, infectious hooks of “Burger and Fries” and “Dr. CRAZY,” it becomes clear that there’s really no getting away from their songwriting ability when it comes to these guys. The band puts Mos Generator‘s Tony Reed on drums (which is where he started) and drum recording, though he also donates a solo to the closing title-track, Chris West, formerly of Trippy Wicked, on guitar and bass and all other engineering, and Mazz from Groan on vocals (Groan‘s Leigh Jones also shows up on backing vocals).
The EP reads like the pulp-inspired art used for the cover, and there’s plenty of shenanigans to be had throughout, but the songs have the kind of apparent simplicity that’s actually much, much harder to come by than it sounds. It’s a name-your-price download just released today, so dig in:
New Band Announcement and EP – Dr CRAZY
Please say hello to Dr CRAZY, a brand new international heavy rock n roll band featuring Mazz (Groan) on vocals, Chris West (ex-Trippy Wicked) on guitar and bass, and Tony Reed (Mos Generator) on drums.
The band’s first EP Demon Lady gets a digital release through Superhot Records and is available with immediate effect from the band’s Bandcamp: http://drcrazyrocks.bandcamp.com.
Demon Lady serves up just over 14 minutes of straight up good time heavy rock and will appeal to fans of AC/DC, Dr Feelgood, Deep Purple and generally having a good time. The band commissioned Justin T Coons to paint the fantastic 70s pulp fiction inspired artwork based on the title track.
Live shows have not been ruled out but with one third of the band being based on a different continent to the others they won’t be happening soon. Dr CRAZY are currently working on demos for next EP which will be out as soon as it’s ready.
