Lord High Fixers ATTN: cardboard adolescent
Probably one of the most fun and catchy bands I have had the pleasure of hearing this side of the millennium. Some of you may be familiar with Tim Kerr the former guitarist for the Big Boys and Poison 13 among others, well this is another in a string of amazing bands he has been involved in.
At this point, Tim’s hunger to experiment being insatiable, Lord High Fixers managed to mutate into a more garage-punk band without losing touch with their past, buried in the blues, and including a nod to the 1960s, as well as to soul and jazz - but always near its blues tradition of loud volume, 1960s feeling, wild distortion, riffs that burn, and Carroll’s snotty voice.
Lord High Fixers did few cover songs, and showed more interest in composing their own material, without forgetting tributes to their favorite artists, covers from bands such as the Supremes, Chuck Berry, Pharoah Sanders, Bob Dylan, The Birds, Jimmy McGriff, Alice Cooper (“18”, “Little Flower of Ulysses"), Subhumanz, The Seeds, Mose Allison and even Lennon/McCartney (“Everybody's Got Something To Hide”), etc. - Extract from Tim Kerr's website
