The Linus Pauling Quartet Post Video and Theme Song for 3CD Assault on the Vault of the Ancient Bonglords Box SetPosted in audiObelisk, Bootleg Theater on December 14th, 2012 by JJ Koczan
Okay, so it works like this. Houston stoner garage rockers The Linus Pauling Quartet — who are a five-piece — have a 3CD box set coming out next week called Assault on the Vault of the Ancient Bonglords. They’ll be releasing it themselves on their own Homeskool Records, as they did earlier this year with their eighth album, Bag of Hammers (review here). To mark the occasion of the release, they’ve written a theme song for the box set. No surprise, it’s called “Assault on the Vault of the Ancient Bonglords.”
But make no mistake. This is a new song — as in, it doesn’t actually appear on the box set for which it’s named. What it does do, however, is make fantastic accompaniment to the charming and Shiner Bock-fueled video the band put together, half as a commercial for the box set and half as a showcase for the track itself. Because I’m a firm believer in the power of charm and the power of killer riffing, here’s the clip for the song:
If you find yourself digging the track and wishing you could hear more of it, you’re in luck as along with the video, The Linus Pauling Quartet also sent along the song itself, which is apparently just a couple weeks old. My understanding is this version isn’t mastered and they’ll have a final up soon as a free download, but here’s “Assault on the Vault of the Ancient Bonglords” to stream in the meantime if you’re up for digging in:
Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!
The Linus Pauling Quartet will release the 3CD box set Assault on the Vault of the Ancient Bonglords on Dec. 18 through Homeskool Records. For more info, hit them up at their Thee Facebooks page.
