Godwatt Redemption

Godwatt Redemption - discography, line-up, biography, interviews ...But a singles disc today, albeit a good one, felt like staying in a stoner groove for at least another day, this time from Italy with the fairly unknown (fairly?) Godwatt Redemption......JUST got through listening to this one on the way home, sludgy and plodding as hell, long ass tracks, trebely, slow guitar riffs, drums mixed up way high, and even some vocals. They, according to the information at hand, releasead a "demo" (2006), also "The Rough Sessions" (2012), and "Senza Redenzione" (2013), NONE of which I happen to have......what I DO have, however, is their "statement of purpose" (MY words, not theirs), 2008's fairly ass-kicking (wait for it) "The Hard Ride of Mr. Slumber" (told ya!).....

This is a good album, quaalude rock at its finest (what's a "quaalude", Uncle BigScott62?"....."Go away Junior, I'm fucking busy, make yourself useful and go find my Ativan").....slow, droning doom rock ala Black Sabbath mixed with maybe Sleep, it's pretty damn good, nice n loud and slower than a lot of the stoner stuff, Mark E, can you possibly help out with any of the rest of the catalogue, you being the world's foremost expert on stoner/doom rock (although THIS one rides the fence a BIT closer to the doom-rock side)......the tracks segue together nicely, and the guitar treble is turned up so high it makes the speakers in my truck rattle......perfecto.

Godwatt Redemption - discography, line-up, biography, interviews ...And, as a bonus, they make dopes out of themselves and cover Deep Purple's "Highway Star" for some reason, uh, well, I've heard of better ideas.....but "Black Hole", "Seventeen Ways to Get a Trip", and "Red Meadow" are all slow mind burners, as are, basically the rest. I love you folks in Italy, can any of YOU help out if Mark E can't? Plus I LOVE you BABES in Italy, YOU can come see me ANYTIME whether or not you've ever HEARD OF these dudes.

Review my January posts, I think I have put some awesome shit up for you all this month, and, as always, I want to do BETTER.......upcoming soon, by request are a re-done Blondie rarities, a Gang of Four post, PERHAPS a Siouxsie & the Banshees post (not sure I have enough material to represent, we shall see)......also soon to come, some Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, feeling a few more power pop comp series, I know of one awesome guest post in the works (bands from the DC area), so it's not like we've run  out of ideas quite yet......please contact me with any ideas you may have to make this thing BETTER, as I said before, like "fucking Facebook for the fucking REST OF US"......I'll be doing it until the rest of YOU get sick of my cynicism and all.
