The Notorious Hi-Fi Killers : Which Side Are You On? (Rocket Recordings)
« Which Side Are You On? » is the debut album by South East London 3-piece The Notorious Hi-Fi Killers. « Which Side Are You On? » presents the trio’s distinctive take on loud, throttling noise rock blended with manic psychedelia, taking the listener on a journey through ferocious 4-track blasts, analogue tape space rock and intuitive heavy blues. This is the sound of a primal rock and roll band at their most uncompromising and dirtiest. From the one and a half minute biker-punk anthem of « Queen O’ Fuck », through the fuzzed up blues of the Freddie King classic « Going Down » to the 18 minutes of psychedelic bliss of « Near The Final Destination » which crumbles into a mantra of noise, drones and horns, with the added assistance of Alexander Tucker, Duke Garwood and members of Part Chimp. The Notorious Hi-Fi Killers have been a common sight on the stages in their hometown of London and various dimly lit warehouses across the country, playing alongside bands like The Heads, Lords, Parts and Labour, Shit & Shine and White Hills.
