Cheetah Chrome Solo EP on Limited Edition LP
Punk legend Cheetah Chrome - co-founder of The Dead Boys and more recently Nashville’s Plowboy Records - releases his first ever studio collection of solo material, appropriately titled Solo on Plowboy Records. Solo is a 7-song EP of cuts from a 1996 recording session produced by Genya Ravan (with executive producer Hilly Kristal) he has deemed his “great lost solo album” and a Nashville session in 2010 featuring Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls), Lez Warner (The Cult), and Sean Koos (Joan Jett and The Blackhearts). Solo segues from hard, loud rock to jangly power pop, all anchored by Cheetah’s gruff growl and intricate guitar work. Lead-off track “Sharky” is an instrumental with a touch of surf rock featuring Cheetah on organ and “Rollin Voodoo” rumbles with fuzzed bass and big drums. The EP will be released in step with the film CBGB. Chrome is portrayed by Rupert Grint (from Harry Potter fame) in the movie and also makes a cameo appearance.
