Hot Lunch, Hot Lunch LP
Heavy, San Francisco punk 'n' roll band HOT LUNCH self-titled album features ten tracks of rallying rock which has been described as "gritty blues-rock (that) keeps the tempo driving hard and heavy with generous helpings of amplified tin sludge and plenty of wailing six-string digressions" that "could have easily been plucked out of the burgeoning hard rock scene of the late '60s and early '70s, competing for decibels with the likes of Blue Cheer and the MC5". Following the sudden implosion of San Francisco's heaviest (and quite possibly hairiest) rock band PARCHMAN FARM, singer Eric Shea built the heavy punk 'n' roll quartet HOT LUNCH. With vintage tube amps the size of refrigerators and a behemoth drum-kit, the group entered California's Louder Studios to record their debut album. The resulting, self-titled Hot Lunch is a ten song romp overflowing with heavy, hard-driving guitars, born-to-be-a-breakbeat grooves, throbbing, melodious bass lines and the BAD ASS vocals of Shea (the dude can really fucking sing!). This is scuzzed-up, red hot garage rock and roll that pushes HOT LUNCH to the forefront of the awesome west coast scene of bands currently redefining skate-rock. Fuck the cold leftovers, it's time for some scorching HOT LUNCH! Tee Pee Records, 2013.
