PSYCHOTIC TURNBUCKLES - DESTROY DULL CITY
Old style, body-slammin' high energy rock and roll returns to the world on March 22nd 2013 with the arrival of the double CD Destroy Dull City collection from psychedelic fuzz rock champions the Psychotic Turnbuckles.
The current holders of the Rock and Roll Tag Team Championship belt are unveiling a collection comprising the bulk of their recorded work.
The package contains the Destroy Dull City EP, the Beyond The Flipout LP, out-takes, rarities, A and B sides from every single released plus two exclusive live tracks from the band's triumphant return to Sydney in December 2012.
Generously illustrated liner notes from a host of luminaries including original manager Mark Fraser and noted underground journalist Steve Danno round off this deluxe release.
The band comprising Jesse The Intruder (vocals), The Grand Wizard (guitar), El Sicoldelico (guitar), The Psychedelic Unknown (bass) and Gorgeous Karl Domah (drums) will re-convene for rehearsals at their headquarters in Pismo Beach, California, before returning to Australia.
The Psychotic Turnbuckles carved a swathe through Australia's rock and roll venues from the early 1980s, relocating from the US after their professional wrestling careers were interrupted by notorious promoter Sammy Duke.
They quickly showed they were the equal of influences like the 13th Floor Elevators, Radio Birdman, the Moving Sidewalks, the Masters Apprentices, The Sonics and The Aztecs by laying waste to the local beer barns and rock hovels.
They shared stages with the likes of The Troggs, the Hitmen, Dark Carnival, Beasts of Bourbon and the Screaming Tribesmen for a decade, fading from the scene as members filtered back to the US.
Their surprise reappearance in Sydney in December 2012 showed the 'Buckles still have the goods to take down any contenders. It sealed a deal with Sydney's legendary Citadel Records - and the rest is history.
