Doom Blues and Nasty No-Future-Wave with Synth Folk Trash

‘Doom Blues and Nasty No-Future-Wave with Synth Folk Trash’ The Reverend Beat-Man and the Underground holed up in a swiss chalet for a week and wrote an album.

It’s out on the near legendary Voodoo Rhythm Records label, and in their words it’s this…

REVEREND BEAT-MAN & THE UNDERGROUND is a collaboration work between the PALP Festifal and Reverend Beat-Man, staying one week in Bruson (Valais, western Switzerland) with white wine and raclette and creating music, I then contacted my favourite musicians: Milan Slick an the keys, he and I already have the synth punk duo project Entartete Musik then Beatrice Graf’s Incredible Beats from Ester Poly. Skinny Jim Tennessee’s Benjamin Glaus is one of Bern’s most underrated rockabilly performers, and Athens-based K.Lou took care of our catering and brought us new music from their treasure trove throughout the week. what you hear on this record is a process, a finding of music, among other things, a Doom Blues version of ‘Jesus Christ Twist’ or the amorous cuddly rock number ‘It’s a matter of time’. Most of the songs were written in lockdown where me and Benjamin Glaus played acoustic music ‘slave to the phone’ or ‘banned from the internet’ are 2 of them.

Our poorly heated rehearsal room was above a sheep farm where we rehearsed all day and recorded everything, these are all 1 take recordings.. no overdubs.. everything is recorded live.. and mixed a few weeks later by Matteo Bordin at Outside Inside Studio

this is doom blues or no-wave rock ‘n’ roll from the Swiss mountains

It has some mean tracks, from ‘I Want to Fuck You’ to a new, slightly gothic version of Beat-Mans ‘Jesus Christ Twist’. You’ll feel slightly dirty, but in a good way…

It’s available on Vinyl and CD on Bandcamp
