Trippy Wicked, “The Lasting Dose” (Crowbar cover) premiere

The Lasting Dose is the third in a series of acoustic singles we’re putting out in 2020.

We were recording our 3rd full length album at the beginning of the year when coronavirus happened and we had to stop working on that.

Without any work and not able to continue with the album we started recording and releasing some acoustic songs because we can record them remotely from each other.

The songs are a mix of acoustic covers of heavy songs and also acoustic versions of our own songs that we have worked on over the years.

Trippy Wicked Launch Series of Acoustic Singles With Their Cover of Sleep’s Dragonaut

In early 2020 the band had to suspend recording of their third full length album due to Covid-19 lockdown measures. Out of work and with a lot of time on their hands they decided to start remotely recording some of the acoustic material they have worked on over the years.

This material includes some cover songs and some acoustic versions of Trippy Wicked songs.

Chris West commented:

“Both myself and Pete are currently out of work and recording these acoustic songs has been on my to do list forever so now is the perfect time. Recording the album was going well and this is a way of not losing too much of the momentum with the band. We’re gonna start putting them out as singles to start. Mostly they’re light and they’re fun and I just want people to hear them. I wasn’t sure about putting an album together at first but I think we probably will because I’m having more and more ideas around that as I work on the songs.”

The project kicks off with their acoustic cover of Sleep’s Dragonaut which is now available most places.

The Obelisk Show on Gimme Radio Playlist: Episode 33

Posted in Radio on May 1st, 2020 by JJ Koczan

the obelisk show banner

Plenty of familiar stuff here if you’ve been hanging around the site lately, but there’s some stuff I haven’t written about yet too. The theme, such as it was — and man, themes are loose with this show anyway, but this one felt even more so — was just good stuff that happened in April. Today’s May 1, and it feels like last month was just lost on so many levels, that I wanted to highlight a few of the good things that happened despite the chaos and the dire feelings that defined so much of the time.

My point is the same as ever: Music still sounds good. If you’ve got that, you’ve got something to hold onto. If there’s nothing else, there’s music. That’s all I’m ever really saying. Sorry to spoil it. Now you don’t have to look at The Obelisk anymore. You’re all done.

You should still listen to the show though because I recorded the voice tracks for it on my phone while I was going to buy fresh mozzarella, and considering New Jersey’s got over 100,000 cases of COVID-19, the sheer Jersey-ness of the endeavor really I think shines through. Plus in the second break, if you stick it out, I say the word “awesome” like 50 times and sound like a total doofus, and that’s worth hearing. I overuse “awesome” anyway, but really, it sounds silly here. I listened back and heard it and decided to leave it in. Hell, at least it’s real.

Thanks for listening if you do.

Days of Rona: Christopher West of Trippy Wicked

Posted in Features on April 22nd, 2020 by JJ Koczan

The statistics of COVID-19 change with every news cycle, and with growing numbers, stay-at-home isolation and a near-universal disruption to society on a global scale, it is ever more important to consider the human aspect of this coronavirus. Amid the sad surrealism of living through social distancing, quarantines and bans on gatherings of groups of any size, creative professionals — artists, musicians, promoters, club owners, techs, producers, and more — are seeing an effect like nothing witnessed in the last century, and as humanity as a whole deals with this calamity, some perspective on who, what, where, when and how we’re all getting through is a needed reminder of why we’re doing so in the first place.

Thus, Days of Rona, in some attempt to help document the state of things as they are now, both so help can be asked for and given where needed, and so that when this is over it can be remembered.

Thanks to all who participate. To read all the Days of Rona coverage, click here. — JJ Koczan

Days of Rona: Christopher West of Trippy Wicked (St. Albans, United Kingdom)

How are you dealing with this crisis as a band? Have you had to rework plans at all? How is everyone’s health so far?

Everyone’s health is good and we’re all following the advice to help reduce the spread of the virus. Jamming and recording is off for the foreseeable and some of our plans have changed a lot. We all live in different places and currently cannot meet up. Since December last year we’ve been recording various songs written over the last couple of years. Some of those are for an album and that is now on hold. Some of the songs are for other releases though including this upcoming single we just announced.

We have a few gigs booked for the year but I think everyone is just waiting to see what happens now. Understandably Desertfest London has been cancelled and that is a major blow for the bands and especially the organisers, considering how much work must go into getting that up and running.

I’m going to start looking back at the archives to see if there’s any more old stuff we can put out and I think this could be a good time to start recording/releasing some of our acoustic music properly. I just need to post Pete’s uke to him and we can record at home no problems.

What are the quarantine/isolation rules where you are?

I’m in the UK and we’re currently in week two of a fairly strict lockdown [as of April 1]. You’re only supposed to leave the house for essentials — shopping as infrequently as possible, exercise, and work if you are a key worker. If you get symptoms then stay inside for seven days and anyone else in the house stays in for 14 days.

How have you seen the virus affecting the community around you and in music?

There are a lot of people signed up to help deliver food for those that can’t get out and those sort of things and that is really good to see. Obviously the closure of pubs and the like is having a significant effect on businesses but some are able to operate by selling takeout beer and food still so that’s good for them.

Live music is gone of course and there’s been a huge shift to online and live streaming. I’m in a couple of Facebook groups where people are sharing music and art that they’ve made. I don’t think many will be able to make any money of note from this but it sure beats a lot of the politics that’s been weighing us all down online.

I think most underground and non-mainstream musicians are being hit hard right now. Sales are down because people have lost jobs, money, security. Streams are down because people are gaming, or on Netflix.

What is the one thing you want people to know about your situation, either as a band, or personally, or anything?

Don’t worry about us. We’ll get back to working on the album when we can and there’s plenty to do outside of that. Look after yourself, your family and your friends, help them and your community if you can.

Trippy Wicked Premiere “Three Leaves” Video; New Single out April 20

Posted in Bootleg Theater on April 14th, 2020 by JJ Koczan

Trippy Wicked

If you were to take Trippy Wicked (né Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight) at their word from their last three studio releases, they might be one of the least predictable heavy bands on the planet. Yes, last year they had the Movin’ On Singles compilation (discussed here) out through APF Records, and in 2017, there was Lost Songs (discussed here) rounding up other recordings, but in 2018 they had the unplugged Stakes and Scale EP (review here), and that was preceded by a 2016 split/collaboration with GURT (review here) and 2013’s Underground (review here), which cast off heavy rock almost entirely in favor of a more clearly metal sound. So what the hell is coming on their new single, Three Leaves, which is out next Monday, April 20, as a two-songer with its title-track and the eight-minute “Green Memories” accompanying?

Hell if I know.

Okay, actually I do know. As they did when guitarist/vocalist Peter Holland and drummer Chris West brought bassist Dicky King backTrippy Wicked Three Leaves into the lineup last year, and as they did by putting together the Movin’ On Singles — which was preceded by a series of individually-issued videos of the songs (as seen here, here and here) — they’re going to ground. It’s not about expectations, or about making some grand stylistic statement. It’s about getting three friends, each with their own life and whathaveyou outside the band, in the same place to revel in a long-established collaboration for the simple joy of it. “Three Leaves?” It’s stoner sludge with lyrics out of the movie Friday. And “Green Memories?” It’s newer, a bit moodier and offset by acoustic interludes. Neither contains an ounce of pretense either in its structure or presentation, and both sound like the work of a band who’ve realized how much they want to write these songs.

Not to belabor the point, but as you watch the “Three Leaves” video with HollandKing and West filming their commutes to and from rehearsal, including train rides and pre-practice beers, there’s hardly a statement to be made that could seem more poignant at this present moment. These guys are a band, and they have been for more than a decade, but as they stand in the rehearsal room and goofily wave goodbye to each other, it’s clear they’re also friends and it’s clear that friendship is something cherished by each of them. Sitting in social isolation under the omnipresent threat of plague, perhaps that resonates all the more than it otherwise might. Or maybe I just don’t have any friends. Ha.

Either way, enjoy the clip for “Three Leaves,” and here’s hoping for more Trippy Wicked to come soon, whatever form it might take upon arrival:

Trippy Wicked, “Three Leaves” official video

Trippy Wicked & the Cosmic Children of the Knight announce the upcoming digital double A side single ‘Three Leaves’ and ‘Green Memories’.

Out on April 20th Three Leaves is a stoner doom homage to the cult classic movie ‘Friday’ and the song has been a permanent fixture in the band’s live set for several years.

Green Memories is the first new music written and released since the longest serving line up of Pete Holland, Chris West and Dicky King announced they were playing together again in early 2019.

Drummer Chris West commented:

“Originally we were just going to release Three Leaves as a single on its own. We’ve been recording songs for an album and we’re getting down everything we’ve been working on including some songs not set for the album. Green Memories wasn’t going to be on that and once we started working on it, it became one of those songs that grows to be greater than the sum of its parts. The direction of the band’s sound is a touch darker since we started jamming and writing again and we wanted to share something new with fans as soon as we could.”

Three Leaves / Green Memories will be available to download on April 20th from the band’s Bandcamp as a name your price download. It will also be available on all streaming and digital platforms.

Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight Sign to APF Records for Movin’ on Singles

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 24th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

Warms the heart, this one does. Specifically, The Black Heart, most likely, which is where I’d imagine Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight would end up doing the release show for what will be their first outing through APF Records. Earlier this year, the kinda-reunited-but-we-never-really-broke-up-but-everybody’s-been-really-busy-with-life-and-stuff-and-you-know-how-it-is-and-also-Pete‘s-in-ElephantTree-and-Chris-has-like-50-projects-and-Dicky-can’t-really-tour heavy rockers began issuing digitally a series of singles recorded a decade ago as a way of honoring the 10th anniversary of the sessions for their 2009 debut full-length, Movin’ On (review here). Speaking as someone who still thinks of that record fondly, it was a fun way to relive it without doing the standard reissue thing and getting something previously unheard from the band, if not something actually new.

Well, because every now and then the universe bends its will to my druthers, APF Records has picked up the series for what will be aptly-titled Movin’ On Singles as a compilation and released on Oct. 30, which also just happens to be the same day Movin’ On came out those 10 years ago. Like I said, warms the heart.

Trippy Wicked have a couple shows lined up, including — now that I look — The Black Heart in Camden Town on Oct. 25, and Sophie Fest in Manchester on Nov. 23. They also just played this past weekend at Ripple Music‘s London Ripplefest along with Stubb, War Cloud and a host of other cool bands.

Here’s APF‘s announcement of the signing:

trippy wicked and the cosmic children of the knight

APF Records – Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight

I can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled I am to confirm that Trippy Wicked have signed to APF Records.

Their first APF release will be a limited edition digipak CD of their “Moving On Singles” on 30th October – which is the 10th anniversary of the release of the Moving On album. More info coming soon.

Chris, Pete, Dicky – a warm welcome to the APF family.

Trippy Wicked Post Seasick Steve Cover “Things Go Up”

Posted in Whathaveyou on July 1st, 2019 by JJ Koczan

trippy wicked

Alright, I’ll go ahead and admit I didn’t know who Seasick Steve was. The third in a seemingly ongoing series of singles from Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight that were recorded along with what became their 2009 debut long-player, Movin’ On (review here), “Things Go Up” is indeed a take on the Seasick Steve song of the same name, and I suppose if you’re more down than I am with your modern blues — as no doubt you are — you might already know it comes from the Oakland country bluesman’s 2006 album, Dog House Music, but yeah, I’d never heard it. Hey, I never said I knew everything. Usually I say the opposite.

Trippy Wicked‘s “Things Go Up” gives the slide-acoustic groove of the original version a thickened-fuzz treatment while guitarist Peter Holland toys with a Southern US accent as heard on parts of the album itself. And “toys” is the operative word. They’re clearly having a good time, and with all the American singers who’ve pretended to be from London over the last century of recorded music, it seems only fair. Two-way street, and so on.

Some comment from bassist Dicky King and the track itself follow, courtesy of the PR wire:

trippy wicked things go up

TRIPPY WICKED RELEASE NEW SINGLE

Trippy Wicked & The Cosmic Children Of the Knight have just released a doomed out cover of Seasick Steve’s “Things Go Up”

Bassist Dicky King commented “I had never heard the original by Seasick Steve, but when Chris and Pete played it to me I loved it. We ran through this version and straight away it had that “Trippy touch” to it, while keeping close to the original. Pete’s vocals worked really with that southern sound and the riffs and drums were full on heavy with a hint of groove. I used to forget the name of the track and always say “let’s do Up & Down” which of course set me up for taking some stick. The song would go down well in a live set too and many a time people would be shouting out for us to play it, so we must have been doing something right with our take on it.”

Trippy Wicked Release Lost Single “Hark at You” from Movin’ On Sessions

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 10th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

trippy wicked

London’s Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight continue their celebration of the 10th anniversary for 2009’s debut full-length, Movin’ On (review here), by releasing another yet-unheard track from those sessions. How many songs did they record that didn’t make the album? I don’t know, but “Hart at You” is the second one released behind “Evil” (posted here), which they put out last month. “Hark at You” has a bit of the sleaze that “Southern” from the album accomplished, but is noisier and more of a banger in terms of tempo. Like its predecessor, it’s a fun cut and kind of a hidden gem that could just as easily have wound up on the record. Seems to me they’re building an EP one song at a time here, but if these tracks all wind up collected at some point or other, this is still a cool way to unveil them so that each gets properly highlighted.

Dig it:

trippy wicked hark at you

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their album “Movin On” TRIPPY WICKED & THE COSMIC CHILDREN OF THE KNIGHT have just released “Hark At You”.

Drummer Chris West commented “Hark at You was a song we were often playing live around the time of Movin On. I don’t remember if we’d already decided not to include it on the album by the time we were mixing but we treated the mix a little different to most of the others. It’s mostly mono guitar on the track with extra guitar/stereo stuff happening during the slower parts. The drums are also slightly off to one side to make a bit of room in the mix. For me at the time it seemed a little too rough sounding, but listening to it now I love how raw and gnarly it is.”

Listen to the track here: https://trippywicked.fanlink.to/Hark

The early years of Trippy Wicked & the Cosmic Children of the Knight are a mix of lineup changes, demos, gigs to empty rooms and stylistic development. Throughout that time the constants of founding members Pete Holland (guitar, vocals) and Chris West (drums), a DIY ethic, and a gut feeling they were onto something worth pursuing remained true. Early 2019 saw the reformation of the ‘not quite original but longest serving lineup’ of Holland and West with later addition bassist Dicky King. (West having previously quit the band in 2013 before his return.)

Along with the announcement of the lineup change, Trippy Wicked also noted they are writing their third full length album and will return to playing live after a two-year break.
