KEITH COOK - neues Album und Single
Keith Cook was the guitarist for protopunk band Debris, with whom he was included in a history exhibit covering the notable rock and rollers from their home state of Oklahoma.
‘Cease’ is the follow up to recent singles; the tongue in cheek three chord rock ‘Child’s Play’ and barnstorming ‘Never Equate’.
‘Cease’, featuring Dave Foster (Nirvana) on drums, and recorded by legendary grunge producer Steve Fisk, is the 3rd single from Keith Cook’s solo album Rock & Roll Riot. Along with ‘Never Equate’, it’s two sides of the same coin written as a double A-side single (like a Beatles or Queen 45). It’s a two guitars, bass and drums rock song, with riffs drawing from punk & hard rock (played through Hagstrom guitars, vintage tube Supro amps like Led Zeppelin used, Big Muff distorted bass plus a massive Melvins style drum kit) bemoaning the gentrification of Seattle in a broad yet incisive enough shot that you could apply it to any place.
All three singles feature on Cook’s upcoming album Rock & Roll Riot, which will be released digitally, on CD and Vinyl on the 29th of October through Riot Records.
Recorded in producer Steve Fisk’s garage home studio, Keith Cook’s Rock & Roll Riot is garage rock in the purist sense of the term. With vintage tube amps, Fisk’s use of classic recording techniques and minimal microphones on tracks, Cook and Fisk capture the raw sound of the riff-based songs that hark back to the simplistic live vibe of early rock recordings.
Cook’s sophomore record is backed by Dave Foster, Aaron Burckhard & Kera Schaley of Nirvana, Steve MacKay of The Stooges, Criss Crass of The Muffs, The Vains, Wayne/Jayne County, Travis McNabb of Greg Sage and The Wipers, Kirk Heydt of Flipper Pop O Pies and Steve Fisk.
