The Warlocks | 23.Juni.2017 | Bi Nuu

Formed in America during 1999, The Warlocks produce a relentless, hypnotic wall of sound that suggests a collision between classic psychedelia, Krautrock and Velvet
Underground style rock and roll. It’s just what the head doctor orders if you wish to be an underground stateside phenomenon and that’s exactly what The Warlocks became.
Front man Bobby Hecksher grew up in the swamps of Tampa Bay, Florida where he was practically raised at a radio station owned his grandfather and where his mum also worked as a secretary. As a result Bobby was soon eating and breathing rock’n’roll on a
daily basis. Bobby recalls, “My granddad was an inspiration. He created the radio station out of thin air. And from it all these nuggets of rock’n’roll came toward me”.

Hypnotische Klangwände und psychedelischer Krautrock: The Warlocks sind ein Untergund-Phänomen und sind seit nunmehr fast zwanzig Jahre unterwegs. Sänger Bobby Hecksher ist in den Sümpfen Floridas aufgewachsen. In Tampa Bay, wo sein Großvater eine Radiostation gründete, in der Bobby´s Mutter als Sekretärin arbeitete, sog er den RockNRoll quasi mit der Muttermilch auf. Ein paar Jahrzehnte später haben The Warlocks mit “Songs from the pale eclipse” eine ausgearbeitete Sammlung von bisher unentdeckten Demos und Songideen veröffentlicht. Die erste Single “Lonesome Bulldog” kommt mit Heckshers feierlich-verführerische Stimme um die Ecke, die sich fast flüsternd an die Gitarre und die getragenen Drums anschmiegt. Heckshers Texte bewegen sich zwischen Poesie und Direktheit. Auch das Thema Alkoholmissbrauch wird auf “Songs from the pale eclipse” angeschnitten. Komplexe Arrangements und Harmonie-verliebte Vocals runden das Gesamtkunstwerk The Warlocks ab.

Support kommt von Whistlejacket:

Hailing from East London with a sound to match, London has been whistling along to Whistlejacket. The chorus of bass heavy shoegaze, and souring guitar hooks is reaching new heights in anticipation of the band’s debut album expected after the summer of 2017.

Having supported the showbiz likes of DIIV, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Yuck, La Luz and Bully as well as making appearances at Secret Garden Party, Hamburg Psych Fest and Indouro Festival in Portugal in the recent past – Whistlejacket are now ready to take on the big time themselves.

Admirers of the band include The Horrors’ Faris Badwan who described the band as “Hypnotic and immersive”, X-Rocks Radio and BBC 6Music, with Whistlejacket getting regular air time and being invited to record an interview for the Steve Lamacq show.
