Cardinal Fuzz are proud to present to you - Plastic Crimwave Syndicate - ‘Massacre Of The Celestials’. Steven Krakow (aka Plastic Crimewave) is a dark sonic visionary whose every output is infused of the deepest psychedelic music (or just plain old music) out there. With Plastic Crimewave Syndicate you are treated to a howling, menacing, throbbing freak-out sthat is never for the faint hearted. Aided by skronkin' sax goddess Taralie Peterson (aka Louise Bock/Tar Pet) of avant musical coven Spires that in the Sunset Rise, Plastic Crimewave Syndicate go into uncharted realms on their 4th new epic album, "Massacre of the Celestials." Recorded over the course of a tumultuous year on this small planet, a concept emerged of a story we all know and love--the rise and fall of humanity, and then the post-apocalyptic rebirth of a new furtherly-dystopian mutated world. PCWSyndicate didn't discriminate with the freaky sonic tools needed to craft this molten behemoth of a LP, utilizing: damaged waves of No Waves, free-festival rave-ups that punters will knock down fences to pogo to, monochord Doom ruminations...and could that be groovy post-post-punkin' Funakdelica? These cosmic cats also go to the roots of all: The Blooz--elemental, drugged, n grungey--and like JAZZ, MAN! (free, not expensive, for thee people). Plastic Crimewave (bellows/guiterror), Kosmik Jru (bass rumble), and Jose "The Beast" Bernal (kit smash), keep the freaks a-rollin and a-tumblin on an LP destined to score the end of this feeble Earthen sphere.
