Here’s Cult 45 kicking out some killer riffs at the TT’s benefit for Rosie’s Place.
Pics from this show here.
Yes! We’ve teamed up with heavyboogiemongers Cult 45 to bring you our first video premiere on Daykamp Music TV! “Dead End Kid” is from On High, which the band released back in January. It puts a clever spin on the ol’ video-inside-a-video trick and tosses in a couple of great cameos. Heck, the beard-no-beard countdown at the beginning is reason enough to click the play button.
Enough jabberin’, go watch this thing already! You may even pick up an idea or two for your next video…
How do you celebrate a new record? Do what Cult 45 did for On High. First, get Chelsea On Fire to reunite for the release show. Then get White Dynomite and Slim Lizzy* on the bill. At the end of the night you can take the stage and pummel the crowd with a fantastic set of heavy boogie. Just like Cult 45 did.
* On the anniversary of Phil Lynott’s passing, no less.
Any band that can pull off a cover a Sabbath’s “The Mob Rules” is OK in my book. So… Cult 45, you’re OK in my book.
Cult 45 represented the horn-throwing underbelly of Boston rock during Preliminary Night #3 of the 2011 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble. Rippin’ guitar riffs, driving bass, pounding drums and wailing vocals are the name of the game here. Cult 45 has all of these in spades.
So, here we are on the eve of the 2011 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble Finals. Head on down to T.T. The Bear’s Place tomorrow night and check out John Powhida International Airport, Spirit Kid and Old Jack as they vie for the coveted Rumble Tiara.
Anngelle Wood has done a remarkable job with this institution. The Rumble is a crash course in Boston’s awesomeness. The 2011 edition has been a celebration of our fantastically eclectic music scene. I haven’t been able to attend all of the shows, but I’ve enjoyed myself immensely on the nights I’ve made my way down to Central Square.
Over the next several days I’ll be posting up some pictures from this year’s festivities. The Autumn Hollow Band are already on display. Watch for photos of John Powhida International Airport, Spirit Kid, Sidewalk Driver, Mellow Bravo, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling and Cult 45.
Tomorrow night should be a lot of fun.
