Great recording of Will and myself (Zan) doing Sundialing on Monday, February 1st, 2010. Band spotlight of the week is on the The Necessary Evils, a Garage-Punk band that formed in 1997 in Austin, TX. Currently, the band seems to be on hiatus with their members devoting more time to their solo projects, which have also received time on Sundialing’s airwaves throughout the years. Their band biography on IN THE RED Records does a great job of summing up their sound: Interplanetary transmissions and the sound of blood lust – get ready for the extreme psychodelic and otherworldly sounds of the Necessary Evils. Their brand of sci-fi inspired fuzz rock stands alone. Founded in 1997 by Steve Pallow (formerly of The Beguiled) and James Arthur (formerly of Fireworks), and rounding out their line up with Kyle John Hall on drums and Jimmy Hole on bass, The Evils have carved a nasty path of destruction over the last few years. Their’s is the darkest, sickest, meanest sound around – truly the product of a disturbed psyche. Steve Pallow’s voice issues warnings and threats throughout their rock n’ roll demolition derby while James Arthur wrangles sounds out of his beat up Electra guitar that range from the sound of metal on metal grinding to that made by a flying saucer. Jimmy and Kyle’s rhythm gives one very fat bottom to this ugly beast. With a nod to 60’s psychedelic music (see covers of The Seeds, Black Rose, White Light and ineptitude kings The Keggs). The Evils make a racket that’s brutal, intrusive and uncompromising. Their song “Play With Fire” from their ‘99 Release The Sicko Inside Me is featured as the fifth song of the broadcast. The rest of the playlist is great with an emphasis on Garage-Punk, Garage-Pop, and Psych-Pop from the 60s, 70s, 90s, and 00s, and can be found under the comments tab under this post.
