About The Slurs

Formed in 2015 by four veterans of the Milwaukee music scene, The Slurs deliver straight up rock and roll as it should be: loud and sleazy. On their upcoming album, Shatter Sessions, the band’s sound is reminiscent of the Stooges, the MC5, and AC/DC. They also draw comparison to the punk-influenced rock and roll of Electric Frankenstein, the Candysnatchers, and Murder City Devils.

From the ragged howl of Slash Me to the shambling, drugged-out love story in Something for Pain, this is rock and roll – cooked down and mainlined.

The Slurs are:

Mike Mattner – drums

Tim Kinyon – bass

Jason Walden – guitars

CJ Olson – vox

 

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
