The Lords Of Altamont




Yesterday, I went to see THE LORDS OF ALTAMONT only because the band played 200 yards from my house. I always thought they were some poser/crap/glam rock & roll band; like a punk rock version of Mötley Crüe. But boy was I wrong!!! On stage, the band played some very exciting hi-octane punk/garage rock & roll that mixes the best of The Cramps & The Stooges (the band’s main influences according to singer Jake "The Preacher" Cavaliere). Moreover, The Lords Of Altamont do have an awesome charisma: tattooed, energetic & very compelling to watch! The singer played this huge farfisa organ and was really wild & crazy. Some songs reminded me of The Joneses and I think The Lords Of Altamont would be the ultimate band to cover The Joneses’ immortal classic “Pill Box”. L.A. Sleaze Supreme!!!

As if this wasn't enough to make an awesome party, the band had brought along 2 professional go-go dancers from L.A. who were very raunchy (but not vulgar)! I really felt in heaven being surrounded by a hot-rocking band and two gorgeous and thrilling beauties who looked like they had just stepped out of a Russ Meyer film poster! If god exists, he did an amazing job creating these femmes fatales! Hail Hail Rock & Roll!!!
