GUITAR WOLF
GUITAR WOLF
Guitar Wolf (Japanese: ギターウルフ) is a Japanese garage rock power trio founded in Nagasaki in 1987. The band is known for songs with piercing vocals and an extremely loud style of noise-influenced punk which emphasizes heavy distortion and feedback. They coined the phrase "jet rock 'n' roll", which they also use to describe their musical style – an energetic cross between the Ramones, Link Wray, rockabilly, 77 punk, and garage rock.
ISAAC ROTHER & THE PHANTOMS
Isaac Rother & The Phantoms call back to an era where rock n' roll was simple and dangerous. The voodoo magic of early rock n' rollers such as Bo Diddley and Screaming Jay Hawkins is seamlessly fused with tough 60's groups like the Animals and the tongue in cheek humor of classic novelty hits like Wooly Bully and Surfin' Bird. Today, with the world of music literally at our fingertips, the camp and ritual of rock n' roll has almost been forgotten, residing mainly in the stories and recordings of the past. Isaac Rother and the Phantoms bring back the golden mystic of this past. They do so with top notch musicianship and hard rockin' original material, rendering them a cut above the rest. Behold… The Unspeakable Horror of Isaac Rother & The Phantoms!

"Isaac Rother is an imposing figure. On stage, he commands a unique and mystifying attention from the audience as the Phantom and his band revive the sounds of rock n roll's nativity in a majestic and awe-inspiring sonic assault. With all the intensity of punk rock and the heart and soul of what first made rock n roll such an exciting movement, Issac Rother & The Phantoms are here to frighten mere mortals with a formidable groove and terrifying ferocity, reminding us all that rock will never die – like the host of the undead, The Phantoms won't stop until they've conquered the world." - Jake Hook, The Alternative Review

"Fronted by lead ghoul, Mr. Rother himself, the Los Angeles-based outfit pool musical influences like the Stooges and Screamin' Jay Hawkins with a love of horror and B-movies to create a sort of gothic doo wop sound that lies somewhere between rock, punk and soul." - PureVolume

"It's farcical theater and greasy retro rock 'n' roll mixed together in a cauldron and served up with a grin and a wink. No mopey indie rock here, thank God! It's nice to see an Angeleno mining such fertile and underrepresented territory." - Jason Gelt, LA Record
