The highly anticipated follow up to the acclaimed Dirty, Dirty from 2012 and Jim Keays’ final album – Age Against The Machine – has been released via Sandman Records. (Keays died in June last year after a long fight with myeloma).
Containing 10 more obscure garage-rock classics from the voice of The Master’s Apprentices, the album alsao features the same team behind Dirty, Dirty – You Am I guitarist Davey Lane, producer Ted Lethborg on bass and Brett Wolfenden on drums. The album was recorded live on vintage analogue equipment, just like the early Master’s Apprentices’ classics.
Interestingly, Keays did a version of ‘Hot Smoke and Sassafras’ by Texan psych-rock band Bubble Puppy, who themselves have recently had a number of reunions and were back in an Austin recording studio in April. The band will be doing some gigs around Austin in July and August.
