IT’S INTRIGUING THE LADIES AND INTIMIDATING THE GENTS!
It’s red, hot and blue! Disturbing and burping!
Rattling, shaking and shivering! It’s dangerous, sexy and liquid!
IT’S THE REAL SOUND OF POWERSOLO!!!
The Real Sound is a return to the roots of POWERSOLO. But this time they dig even deeper than ever and deliver a string of catchy tunes with crazy lyrical hooks that could have been one hit wonder 7”-singles back in the 50s, 60s or even the 70s. They are the type of songs that would be found on the Las Vegas Grind and Nuggets compilations. It’s music you can dance to, prance to, rock and roll (in the Biblical sense) to, and get into some serious trouble to. Celebrating the times when music had a sense of fun, sex and danger to it. This is the real sound of rock’n’roll. The Real Sound of POWERSOLO!
THE REAL SOUND? WHAT IS THE REAL SOUND?
The Real Sound is the un-thought sound of two brains, one leg and four arms. Digging the middle tone in the trombone smoking zone of the wild beasts of the Jalaba! It’s a “Jurassic Sex Party”! And it’s the “Boom Babba Do Ba Dabba” of the 21st century! It’s the tale of the “Sasquatch” and his “Two Headed Woman” wearing “The Leather Suit”. The “Frantic” tale of the “Sloppy Bird” flying over Paris looking for “Des Filles”. And YES! It’s the tale of the girl with the “Big Lips” tasting the “Sonic Sauce” with her “Salty Lick” and the “New Fashioned Girl” getting a severe “Tequila Whiplash” trying to “Milk That Thang”!
RAILTHIN AND CRISP BROTHERS
POWERSOLO is two railthin brothers. Thee Railthin Brothers. Two wild rock’n’roll creatures from the future living in the past and hailing the present with their unique musical sound – The Real Sound. Once again, the brothers have teamed up with another pair of siblings, the crisp team of brothers, Jesper Reginal and The Great Nalna (The Tremolo Beer Gut), who also produced the It’s Raceday…, Egg and Buzz Human albums. The result is nothing short of legendary. But wait, can it perhaps become even more legendary? That sounds unreal. An unreal sound? No, more than that: a Zound, mothers! The Unreal Zound of POWERSOLO!
THE UNREAL ZOUND? WHAT IS THE UNREAL ZOUND?
Since the first time POWERSOLO recorded for The Finest Recording Organization in The Universe (that’s right: Crunchy Frog), Boss Frog Jesper Reginal suggested that a hip hop producer ought to work on the band’s songs. Of course, it would have to be a producer that had the history, the chops and the smarts to treat the PowerSongs with all due respect and all due irreverence and come up with a record to match the rambunctious juicyness of the so-called original you hold in your hands. The first and only choice was Mister Tue Track. Tue Track is the undisputed king of hip hop for the thinking, drinking and ka-ching-king man. Part of the premier Danish hip hop band Malk de Koijn and several other incarnations, he produces sassy, groovy tracks with eclectic influences from genres other than the obvious. A mix that shakes your ass as much as it shakes your preconceptions about what hip hop should be. A mix that you haven’t tasted before. A mix you can’t get enough of. A mix that POWERSOLO can get behind. In a big way. Tue Track slice and dice a selection of songs from The Real Sound to comprise a stand-alone and utterly original long player album entitled The Unreal Zound of POWERSOLO. An album made for the future, in the present, honouring the past. Out on Crunchy Frog Recordings. Get your mittens on that LP quicksville after you direct your full attention to the masterpiece spinning on your turntable right about now.
Ladies. We give you The Real Sound of POWERSOLO. Enjoy!
