NEW SINGLE – ‘ATOM BRAIN MONSTER – ROCK!’
RELEASED – BLANG RECORDS – 29TH JULY 2016
LIVE DATES – JUNE & JULY 2016
Former Spacemen 3 cosmonaut Sterling Roswell is set to release a new single on Blang Records, his first for the label, on the 29th of July 2016.
‘Atom Brain Monster-Rock!’, released on limited edition seven-inch vinyl and available to download, comes backed with the instrumental ‘Atom Brain’ and is hint of what to expect from the forthcoming album later this year. Psychedelic Space Rock at it’s very best, the single is a lurching blank-eyed rock and roll swamp thing dripping fuzz and tremelo over your turntable and sees Roswell calling from the shadows about Obama keeping Cameron’s brain alive in a pickle jar.
In Sterling’s own words, “It’s about a greedy little man that is supposed to be working for the good of the nation, but instead tries to rip off the system that people have worked so hard to build – the NHS and the welfare of the people is being traded off the jet set life styles of a class of pig fucking, oil spilling, gun running Tory terrorists.”
Multi – instrumentalist and multi – talented, any attempt to categorize Rosco AKA Sterling Roswell runs the risk of misrepresenting a genuinely true radical. Artist, musician, poet and producer, since first arriving in the late eighties with Spaceman 3, he has proved to be all of these and more and has successfully embraced a myriad of artistic forms to great effect.
A truly captivating live performer, Sterling Roswell can play solo or with a rotating collective of musicians that include Martin Langshaw (The Perfect Disaster / Spacemen 3 ) on drums and percussion and Claire Harrison on Voltage Controlled Oscillator. He recently toured the UK with Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind, headlined Andrew Weatherall’s Festival in Carcassonne France, Spain, and Portugal and played eighteen US cities in twenty one days from NYC to the LA Psych Fest at Echo with The Strawberry Alarm Clock.
Having more than confirmed that he is THE act to see in this new age of psychedelia, Sterling Roswell will play the following dates in Edinburgh, Newcastle and London. More shows will be announced throughout the coming months.
