"Sao Paulo is one of the largest, filthiest, and most violent cities of the world. And this is the music we make here."
Captured live at the No. 74 in Sao Paulo - brace yourself for a one way trip to the heart of darkness. 'RCKNRLL' is a transcendental psychedelic sonic assault, a lightning storm of guitar haze and drugged-out wailing. Mainlining an elegantly wasted take on two-chord avant garage rock that makes direct reference to 'Plastic Inevitable' era Velvet Underground, where Yury Hermuche's devotional fuzz is layered on top of Julie and Caca's primal throbbing rhythm - you will feel the effect as time and space start creasing and folding in at the edges. The overall music created at this venue on this night is so intense and claustrophobic that, at times it will pin you back into your seat - such is the physicality of Firefriend's music. This is not just another live album - this is a mission statement.
With a taste for hallucinogens and the drone 'RCKNRLL' is completely unyielding, it offers no concessions to listeners, demanding they embrace the distortion. Do yourself a favour. Turn the music on, the lights off, and let yourself go.
RCKNRLL, FUZZ, FEED YOUR HEAD. Limited to 300 copies on green vinyl.
