The Amazing Snakeheads Amphetamine Ballads on 180g LP + Download
Domino is proud to present Amphetamine Ballads, the debut album from Glasgow’s The Amazing Snakeheads. A monument to the redemptive powers of rock 'n' roll - full of rage, romance and dark humour - Amphetamine Ballads is an uncompromising, astonishingly visceral debut album. On the strength of early singles and their live shows, The Amazing Snakeheads have established themselves as a force of nature not to be reckoned with and one of the most promising rock ’n’ roll bands to come out of the UK in ages.
The Amazing Snakeheads - Dale Barclay, William Coombe and Jordan Hutchison - look like they sound: all pomade, shades, denim, leather and signet rings. Amphetamine Ballads is the soundtrack to the dark corners of nightclubs and those dimly lit alleyways off the main drag. The smell of smoke and liquor pervades everything. Recorded at night time at The Green Door Studio in Glasgow, this is a subterranean record – an album that can show you round the parts of a city that come alive after dark.
The Amazing Snakeheads never really formed as such - their conception seemingly more preordained than planned. Dale and William had been friends since childhood; Jordan was Dale’s neighbor who became a close friend. While they each played music, they never really harbored ambitions to play in bands – the prospect of aiming high and missing was almost enough to put the trio off even trying. When the band finally got together and started playing shows, their shows quickly gained an infamous reputation.
