CARMACYDE GROUP INDEX BANNER

Bombchan

With "Do Me Right", their debut album, Bombchan tips the hat to roots blues luminaries such as Bukka White, Robert Petway, Mississippi Fred McDowell and R.L. Burnside with interpretations of their songs from a fresh perspective, with honesty and such conviction it is sure to get you in the groove. Forging a sound unique to themselves Bombchan's live shows have been acclaimed as "fuzzed-out, over the top, hill country blues with a touch of metal and a ton of rock." "Do Me Right" delivers a fine balance of raw rock energy with the rhythmical punctuation and "oddities" inherent in the soulful, muddy, barrel-house blues grooves of the south. This ain't no Blues Hammer! Recorded live off the floor (by Scott Franchuk of Riverdale Recorders in Edmonton, AB), this early snapshot in the life of Bombchan exists as testament to the undeniable chemistry and years of experience behind the individual band members. Bombchan's powerful vocal styling (vocalist/guitarist Michael B.C. Park) and relentless guitar rhythms are backed by a few of Edmonton's finest: the very prolific singer/songwriter Ayla Brook (AA Sound System) on guitar, having a forum to display the more aggressive side of his chops as he sheds the task of front-man and focuses on sheer guitar wizardry. Grant "Stovetop" Stovel (Swifty's, Pinetop Perkins, Sue Foley) is on drums, a true staple in the Edmonton community with his extensive contributions in Radio as a disc jockey (CKUA / CJSR) and to many other North American bands in need of that steady back bone rhythm; and filling out the bottom end is "Downtown" Karie Brown, a bass player with a diverse background ranging from classical, punk to country.This no non-sense band is "not one to blow smoke up yer ass but guaranteed to knock you out in one punch!"
