HOT LUNCH is a punk ‘n’ roll band from the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area that specializes in getting loud, getting weird and getting rad. The quartet’s unique blend of brown-acid skate-rock and wah-fuzz proto-metal was born in the bowels of skatanic rituals, biker beer busts and wizard staff meetings. With a head-bludgeoning sound that refuses to take sides (and showers), Hot Lunch are on a hell-bent mission to create the best party soundtrack in the history of all music. Their self-titled debut album was recorded by Tim Green at Louder Studios and is available on all formats by Who Can You Trust? Records (EU), Tee Pee Records and Burger Records (US).
“A blast of 60’s acid rock seemingly unearthed after decades of rock ‘n’ roll mediocrity necessitated its rebirth” – Thrasher Magazine
“A glorious tangle of sixties style psych, eighties punk rock, hairy fuzzy proto-metal and seriously shredding guitar mastery” – Aquarius Records
PAINTED DOLL is the new band formed by comedian/guitar shredder Dave Hill (Valley Lodge, Cobra Verde) and heavy metal legend Chris Reifert (Autopsy, Death). Painted Doll came to life when “a death metal guy and a power pop guy got hammered together at a Goblin concert in Texas.” Soon after, Reifert and Hill began trying to out-deep cut each other with late 60’s/early 70’s Dutch and British psych-pop before Chris suggested the two musicians form a band together inspired by the music they’d been trading. The record’s acid trip-esque cover art was created by Hill himself, who calls the colorful collage “something I would have drawn on my notebook back in high school after too much Robitussin.”
Focused on scuzz, primitive, outcast and punk rock and roll. It’s loud.
