THE ROYAL HANGMEN
The Royal Hangmen LP
Screaming Apple Records
Hailing from Zurich, THE ROYAL HANGMEN started eight years ago to proclaim the gospel of garage rock. First a simple cover-band, they soon found their own style and tunes and finally some attention amongst the international 60s/retro scene. Their first 45 single Mary Jane was released back in 2009 on Greek label Lost In Tyme. Lots of concerts in France and native Switzerland followed thereafter, culminating in a support slot for the mighty SONICS.
It took them some time to record their first proper album, but it was definitely worth the wait. So get on your go-go boots, put that marvellous wax on the turntable and shake your hips to the driving Turn Me On, the frantic Mary Jane, the melodic Shes Gone or Get Out Of My Way and all the other smashing tracks on this record, until you reach the final comedown with the moody, psychedelic "Wake Up". What a trip. If you go bananas listening to bands like the SHADOWS OF KNIGHT, the ZAKARY THAKS, the BAD SEEDS, the CYNICS and the STAGGERS, this ones for you babe!
It's fab! Its groovy - Its THE ROYAL HANGMEN!
