Starcrawler - Starcrawler LPRough Trade
What do you get when you combine elements of theCramps, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne and The Runaways? You get STARCRAWLER. STARCRAWLER are a Los Angeles rock band who formed in 2015 when 18-year old lead vocalist Arrow de Wilde first met guitarist Henri Cash at their Echo Park high school. Shortly thereafter they were joined by the rhythm section of Austin Smith (drums) and Tim Franco (bass). The foursome play with squalling riffs and thundering beats, and their incendiary live shows, fronted by de Wilde’s otherworldly magnetism, are truly captivating. Geoff Travis, founder of Rough Trade, explains the label’s love for the band: “If you thought rock and roll was moribund, had lost its sense of fun and performance and primal power it just means you haven’t seen Starcrawler yet.”
Their debut album was recorded by Ryan Adams on analog tape at his Pax-Am Studio. Ryan’s love for them and his excitement about the forthcoming album has been well documented in his many posts about them from the studio....“This Starcrawler record is gonna peel the paint off your brain”....“Starcrawler are so fucking insanely good.
