MICHAEL YONKERS W/THE BLIND SHAKE – Carbohydrates Hydrocarbons LP (reissue) NN002r

yonks2 Coming 2013
Back in print! Nero’s Neptune yields to popular demand, and provides a limited LP reissue of the landmarkCarbohydrate HydrocarbonsMichael Yonkers‘ splattering, maniacal guitar shards and impassioned vocals ride atop The Blind Shake‘s driving riffs and scalpel-sharp rhythm section to create a 21st century high-water mark for both forces. It’s hard to believe that music this tight, cohesive and utterly essential was borne not long after a chance nightclub encounter between an oddball, 60-something musical genius and a much younger, precociously talented rock band but, as they say, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. Cover art by Zak Sally (Low), RTI pressing, Stoughton jacket. Edition of 500 copies.
