|LP - clear vinyl||£20.99||Pre-Order||Dispatched on or before Friday 29th January 2021|
The Carrboro, NC supergroup Speed Stick is an ever-evolving project among
a group of friends’Ash Bowie (Polvo), Charles Chace (The Paul Swest), Laura
King (Bat Fangs), and Thomas Simpson (The Love Language)’whose musical
achievements reach back as far as the 1990s.
But as its live shows attest, the band does not want to rehearse old accomplishments.
On stage, Speed Stick wants to shatter epochs. Step into a world of
thunder where lighting strikes rewire nervous systems. Ride waves with peaks
that precede disquieting calms. Float in spaces where dark and light collide to
set blood afire.
To participate in a Speed Stick show is to enter a space of bodily and psychological
endurance. Off-kilter guitar riffs shadow the raging intensity of drums;
blistering drum beats dance to the feedback of guitars.
