  BAD FOR LAZARUS RELEASE SINGLE AND VIDEO 'CAUGHT IN THE TWIST'
23 May 2014





June 16th heralds the return of psych outfit, Bad For Lazarus as they announce the release of their single, 'Caught In The Twist', off their upcoming debut Album 'Life's A Carnival, Bang! Bang! Bang!', due for release 28th July.

Reception for BFL's first single, 'My Muddle' back at the end of 2012, bordered on hysterical, as they watched the record's video fly to number two on the NME's most popular video chart. Equally, ArtRocker stuck their Single Of The Month flag right through the track, citing the song's effects as such to "pleasure all the neurological senses."

Giving their fans and followers even more cowbell this time round, 'Caught In The Twist' is a fiery frolic of pleasingly scuffed up vocal harmonies, Rich and Richie's trademark multi-guitar meatiness, and newcomer garage ghoul, Andrew Knightley's distinct psycho-surf keys. "When I started the band," says frontman Rich Fownes, "I said I wanted it to be like Buddy Holly meets Slayer. Well, here you go."

As ever, BFL's audio drive, fuzz and thwack is epitomised through 'Caught In The Twist'; like the Beach Boys teamed up with Bela Lugosi and cooked dinner for Sid and Nancy .

"Lyrically Caught In The Twist is a love letter to the way of life that this band bestows upon us; it's not always pretty, but it's about that sense of perspective : we would all daydream about doing what we're doing when we were kids. It's easy to forget that, you can get blinkered and twisted.

"You can look at a band like an emotional and fiscal black hole...but you could look at a child the same way. That is the perspective, we are wading in a pool of madness, and the song is saying thank you for the chance! The song could be called "woah man, I didn't see THAT coming". Rich Fownes.

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
