Voodoo Glow Skulls - Southern California Street Music.
What do you get when you combine guttural, rapid-fire vocals, a tough metallic guitar attack, a funhouse horn section and muscular drumming that borders on polka for the insane? It's nothing but the Voodoo Glow Skulls, a great punk rock band that happens to play very fast songs with horns. Voodoo Glow Skulls concocted their infectious mixture of punk, metal, ska and Latino music thirteen years ago and proceeded to distill it into a poisonous brew of propulsive rock n’ roll that has driven audiences wild around the globe. Voodoo Glow Skulls are back with "Steady As She Goes" – an album they are particularly proud of, as they produced it themselves in their own studio. The title track symbolizes the journey of Voodoo Glow Skulls – while the years have been filled with ups and downs, the band faces the future with optimism and their usual twisted sense of humor. "Steady As She Goes" contains twelve raucous tracks, two in Spanish and (in keeping with their tradition) one cool cover, 60s chestnut “Little Red Riding Hood”, made famous by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs. These great new tracks explore everything from racial/ghetto politics ("High Society", "The Rat Traps", "Nada En La Cabeza") to the outrageous fun of the Voodoo Glow Skulls live show ("Voodoo Anthem"), from Mexican mythology ("La Llorona") to the disloyalty of lost friends ("Steady As She Goes").
