THE LORD CALVERTS
BLOCKHOUSES • THE LIVE ONES • THE FLURRIES
From off the streets of Baltimore, '60s garage-rock legends The Lord Calverts are back! Relocated to New York City, the L.C.s are once again in front of audiences, delivering their own take on true American roots rock: loud, crass, catchy and quick!
Blockhouses is a revved-up rock'n'roll trio from New York City. The guitar-bass-and-drums combo got its name from the Blockhouse in Central Park, a fort built to protect New York City from British invasion. Like that Manhattan landmark, Blockhouses is rock-solid, delivering their own take on New York City rock'n'roll. Think catchy melodies with driving guitars and sweaty live energy. Blockhouses front man Guy Lyons was lead guitarist of The Figgs back in the day. With a batch of new tunes — and a stable of old classics — he formed Blockhouses in 2013 with bassist Christopher Peifer (The Kowalskis) and drummer Bill Wolf. The guys share a mutual love for bare-bones rock and roll -- from the Ramones to the blistering pop-punk of today. Their supercharged first single, "Love To Get You High," is out now.
Beacon, NY's The Flurries play unabashedly energetic three minute rock'n'roll gems... The Live Ones (Drugfront Records) play hopped up three-piece rock'n'roll in the grand New York tradition. Catchy tunes, howling vocals, and a big sweaty beat!
