They say you can take the kid out of the rock, but you can’t take the rock out of the kid…or some shit like that. This is especially difficult when “the kid” in question is CAVE IN’s Adam McGrath, fearless leader and vocalist/guitarist of CLOUDS, an outfit that delivers unbridled action-rock harking back to the mid/late-’90s Man’s Ruin garage onslaught—which, in turn, owes its collective hearing loss to the likes of THE WIPERS, the BAD BRAINS, THE STOOGES, and the MC5. So you can see what kind of lineage we’re talking about here. But wait—that’s not all these Boston gents have to offer: From nasty psych and Southern power grooves to (believe it or not) “Party Grunge” and sax’d-out dub, Legendary Demo has it all. Unlike anything else in Hydra Head’s vast back catalogue, this is truly a revelation.
