Acid King Busse Woods on Colored LP
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Acid King bubbled up from San Francisco in 1993 through a fog of revved up riffs, thunderous drums, and a hypnotic vocal howl. They unleashed three EPs and three full-length albums, starting with Zoroaster in 1995, the 1999 full-length Busse Woods, and Acid King III, coming in 2005. Their seismic chemistry transfixed audiences everywhere from high-profile festivals such as Hellfest and Roadburn to iconic shows alongside peers such as Sleep and Mystick Krewe of Clearlight.
Originally released on CD by Man’s Ruin, Busse Woods is now reborn on wax. A further chapter of America's Satanic youth uncoils slowly and doomfully along the backwoods of your tortured mind. Gigantic waves of black sound wash away your hopes and cast you upon despair's lonely beach. Motionless, you lie limp, awaiting the Devil's touch.
More Kasso-inspired tunes are the rule rather than the exception, but a departure of sorts emerged with AK's cover of "39 Lashes" from the Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack. The band has steadfastly resisted doing covers, but they decided to do this one for kicks. Brian handled the talking parts and Lori says there's a whip in the mix, too. " I tried the whip once and I couldn't do it, so a trained professional had to be called in!"
"Acid King's Busse Woods makes a definitive statement of heaviness that more than makes up for their small number of releases. Interesting then, how this enormously dark and heavy CD is characterized by its laid back feel. There is no angst and bombast here, just super large fuzz riffs unfurled with taste and atmosphere...Just put on Busse (pronounced buss-ee) Woods and find out what she can do." - Roadburn
