Now this is what good garage-punk is supposed to sound like. Burning up from down south in Tallahassee, FL, Switchblade Cheetah recently released their latest lo-fi opus, Chapel of the Bitch, back in May via Workerbee Records and Goat-Fi Records.
The album is led by single “All That Blood” which is a rollicking glam-fuzz rock number in a similar vein to Ty Segall but still altogether Switchblade Cheetah’s own. There’s a moment in the chorus where the vocal drops out for a moment, not unlike a fist-cocking backwards, before the follow through punch of “BLOOD!” Love it.
To help intro Switchblade Cheetah a little better, we had the band’s Brian the Wolf take the SIMGE Survey. Check out his responses while streaming “All That Blood” below.
