THE AMAZING SNAKEHEADS

 

'Amphetamine Ballads' is the debut album from Glasgow’s The Amazing Snakeheads, which will be released on 14th April 2014 on Domino Records. A monument to the redemptive powers of rock 'n' roll - full of rage, romance and dark humour - it is an uncompromising, astonishingly visceral debut album. The Amazing Snakeheads - Dale Barclay, William Coombe and Jordan Hutchinson - are truly a force of nature. On stage, Dale appears possessed by music, rock’n’roll channelled through every sinew in his body. “I genuinely don’t know where the music comes from,” says Dale. “How I play music - live or in the studio - it is what it is and I struggle to know where it comes from. There's been a lot of things written about the band, people say we're angry and things like that - but to me it's just us. There's a hell of a lot of joy in the music.” 'Amphetamine Ballads' is the soundtrack to the dark corners of nightclubs and those dimly lit alleyways off the main drag. The smell of smoke and liquor pervades everything. Recorded at night time at The Green Door Studio in Glasgow, this is a subterranean record – an album that can show you round the parts of a city that come alive after dark.
