After a seven-year hiatus, Madrid’s Hollywood Sinners return with their long-awaited fourth LP. The Spanish princes of garage-rock are still rolling on and rocking out like they’ve never been away on the hilariously titled Khöme Kakkä.
Beginning in 2001, Hollywood Sinners have now released four LPs, seven singles, and have appeared on numerous compilations on esteemed labels such as Slovenly Recordings, Animal Records and their home label, Dirty Water Records. Over the years they have been and continue to be a featured attraction at all the major garage rock festivals in Europe – Fuzzville, Funtastic Dracula Carnival, Wild Weekend, Shout Party, Le Beat Bespoke, Rotterdam Rumble, Suicide Twist, Go Sinner Go, and many more.
The group have just released their long awaited follow up to the epic “Disastro Garantito” (released on Dirty Water back in 2011). The album was recorded at Circo Perotti, in Gijon, Spain, an all-analogue studio where the garage rock alumni include The Masonics, Billy Childish, Holly Golightly, The Cynics, The Urges and countless others and where they have laid down their craft with wizard producers Mike Mariconda and Jorge Explosion.
Edu Sinner (guitar/vocals) explained why such the long wait in between albums: “I started a business in Madrid six years ago called Pandora’s Vox which is a bar and 21 rehearsal room studio for bands, and put all my energy into it. So Hollywood Sinners almost stopped entirely. We were only doing a few gigs each year, and not a lot each month as we all used to do. But now we have a new LP and we are back again ready to rock!”
Yes! The Hollywood Sinners waste no time on this, their fourth LP, in rocketing straight into their balls to the wall, stripped-back, no-frills rock ‘n’ roll and with Khöme Kakkä, Hollywood Sinners, are back with a bang.
Mike Mariconda and Jorge Explosion with their production duties, have pulled the trio together to craft a record that is all business, no frills and a direct punch to the gut of rock ‘n’ roll. It’s a record to scream and shake along to, a beer-soaked adrenaline shot of garage. Power, noise, fun, and rebellion.
" fantastic slab of rock ‘n’ roll that leaves you beaming from ear to ear and ready to flip the record and start it all over again" - Louder Than War
"Khöme Kakkä is a fun throwback to when punk rock was defiant in the sense that it was just a group of guys trying to make some noise. Hollywood Sinners on their fourth album deliver a record full of no-frills, straight-up punk rock that is often absent from today’s punk" - The Spill Magazine
The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 220.127.116.11's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
