Archie Bronson Outfit
Domino Recording Company
Meet Archie Bronson Outfit - a powerful threesome from South London. The Bronson Family are gents
Cleveland, Hobday and Windett. The line up is bass/voice, guitar/voice, and drums, but who's
playing what...I don't know. ABO present their debut release, a 7" single holding "Kangaroo Heart"
b/w "Devils Move" (the CD's got a third track, "Blue Beard"). British psychedelic rock (late 60s
tumbling into the 70s) revisited. Raw and wild.
"Kangaroo Heart" is an explosive song with guitars on overdrive, and a pumpinng rhythm section.
Indeed fierce and dirty, greasy and sweaty, bluesy and noisy. An excellent single with a tremendous
drive. Or, dare I say bounce... The b-side is half the speed and far as intense and catchy. Well,
it is intense, but more in a steady and punchy way. Of a darker nature, and very R.O.C.K. indeed.
Imagine Roky Erickson teamed up with Black Sabbath in, say, 1975.
An exciting debut. Play it loud! Hope to hear more. Soon.
