Archie Bronson Outfit @ Magnet Berlin | Thursday, 12.06.2014
Hot on the heels of their new album release Wild Crush on Domino Records, London based pop trio the Archie Bronson Outfit undertake an extensive european tour this month including a show at Magnet club in Kreuzberg.
Wild Crush is the new LP by Archie Bronson Outfit. Recorded back in the bosom of their home town Bath, Wild Crush is an acutely apt title for an album packed with raw-romance, brutal hooks and groovy soul reflections.
In the 4 years since the release of their last LP Coconut, which won plaudits and reverence around the globe, A.B.O. have stripped themselves back and focused their vision. Having waved farewell to founding member D Hobday and welcomed Coconut live collaborator Kristian Robinson (aka Capitol K) on full time analogue synthesiser duty, Wild Crush became a journey of sonic re-discovery and a simultaneous new adventure.
2014 finds all essential ABO check points intact: driving rhythms.. howling romance.. distortion… echo…. rifferarama (tick! tick! tick! tick!) and with baritone sax delivered from long term friend to the band Duke Garwood, Wild Crush takes you aboard their time-travelling, genre-hopping silver machine: across the Atlantic, into the Mississippi blues heartlands, re-fuelling on 60’s proto-punk, up to NY circa 1981 – O Superman, is that you riding alongside us? – and back to rock-riffing 70’s mainstays of both the UK and Krautrock scenes.
