Lay Down Mains/Sonn Av Krusher/Recompas - The Men Machines
This Saturday Sonn Av Krusher will be playing with our friends Lay Down Mains and Recompas at the Drunken Unicorn. This is an album release show for Lay Down Mains, so expect some loud rock n' roll raging from these guys all night long. Of course, expect a full set of power bore drone pummel from SAK, and some great atmospheric wash from Recompas to put everyone in the right frame of mind.
As mentioned in previous posts, Lay Down Mains features Rick Moore from Barrel/Rebar/Galanas Cerdd/Copa Vance/Home of the Wildcats/The Wayne Williams on guitar and Lee Corum from Chapterhall/Some Soviet Station/Copa Vance/Home of the Wildcats on drums. Recompas features Travis Thatcher and Ben Coleman from Judi Chicago, with a lot of gadgets, friends and other great gear. It is shaping up to be quite a night.
August 13 Update: The show was a great success, and not just because the bands were great and we got to see some old friends, but because Rick brought several copies of the never-released Barrel LP. I finally got my hands on one - thanks Rick!
I also recorded the set by Sonn Av Krusher, and Travis from Recompas sent me the recording of their set. Check it out here: Sonn Av Krusher Set / Recompas Set
Unfortunately, I ran out of battery before Lay Down Mains started, but rest assured they were tearing everyone a new one out there, in their totally unassuming way. They have a new album out on Moodswing Records - go get it now at your local record store, etc.
