Beech Creeps, a rock-n-roll Chimera (the kind that breathes fire) shake us with their self-titled LP out March 3rd on Monofonus Press. It was recorded in Brooklyn’s Secret Project Robot by Jonathan Schenke who’s worked with the likes of Parquet Courts and PC Worship. The album captures the glory of the Creepsound– at times sublime, crusty, swirling and headbanging. It’s like Mötörhead kicking Superchunk’s ass and Soundgarden cheering them on. Or the Melvins eating the Cure. Real rock and roll with juice and bile and sweat and heart. Check out the first “worthy party-punk rager”

Members include: Ron Llave, formerly of pop band/dance company People Get Ready and electro-world-beaters Yeasayer, PP Coolata of mathy spazz-rockers Ex Models and stoner krautpunks Knyfe Hyts plus Yuka Mofongo, bassman for Doug Gillard and indie darlings, Pterodactyl. Despite being devoted to drinking rum and lazing on hammocks, they quickly became a favorite at venues like Death By Audio and Shea Stadium for their balls out live shows. After releasing Meet the Creeps and The Crashing Booms in rapid succession, Beech Creeps has emerged from the studio with a 39 minute stunner.
