2 minutes and 30 seconds of a rolling drum beat, gruff guitars and rough vocals blasting out the speakers of an early nineties stereo. That’s the sound of 51 BLACK SUPER. 11 songs and just 30 minutes to cross the USA, from the Californian home of Weezer and Pavement, to The Raspberries’ or Guided By Voices’ Ohio. 51 BLACK SUPER is straight forward and down to the point. Written and recorded in the urgency of short and intense sessions, this first album reflects the state of mind of its band members : spontaneous and eager to tear it up. ‘Sounds like the Strokes with less cocaine and more facial hair’ a Californian rock critic once said upon first listen. Then he added: ‘A big compliment’, just to make sure.
