Peoples Temple – “More For The Masses” – [HoZac Records]
Proof that rock is not dead and still rollin! Named after the Jim Jones cult well remembered as the group that organized a mass suicide/murder in South America where 920 people died… damn.
But these dudes (two sets of brothers, William and Spencer Young and Alex and George Szegedy) are based in Lansing, Michigan of all places. Kinda surfy at times, but mostly reminiscent of good ass ’60s and ’70s rock with a hint of grunginess and sprinkled with the blues. Kinda surprised when I found out they formed in ’07, and this just came out in Oct. ’12. Apparently they do crazy shows, but it looks like a super hard jam out sesh to me, which is no problem at all. Yer definitely gonna have to turn this the fuck UP!
3 epic lead guitar, 4 sweet harmonica, 6 kinda Doors-y, 8 rocks hard, 9 kinda grungy, 11 surf city, 12 abstract, all songs 2-5 minutes
