What: Celebrity Beatings by Wax Witches.
When: February 8 through Jerko/MGM.
Key notes: Debut album from Wax Witches, solo project of Bleeding Knees Club frontman Alex Wall. Coming out on CD and digital via new Sydney label Jerko (Step-Panther), with cassette coming from LA label Burger Records (Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, OFF!). Recording during downtime from BKC over the past year, “as a way to keep boredom at bay and record off-the-cuff at home.” Wall played nearly every instrument and recorded and mixed all 16 songs at his Gold Coast home before being mastered by Straight Arrows’ Owen Penglis. Follows recent singles ‘Help Me Out’ and ‘Santa Forgot Me’. Includes the “a faithfully pissed-off” Black Flag cover ‘Nervous Breakdown’ and the single ‘Alone’ (stream below). Supporting Thee Oh Sees at the Great Northern in Byron Bay on February 13, with launches in Melbourne and Sydney planned for mid-March.
From the presser: “Fans of Bleeding Knees Club will find much to love here – if possible, Wax Witches is even more snotty, frantic, dumb, lo-fi and badass than the songs on Nothing To Do. Its brat-blast noise-pop and gonzo garage-rock channels Wall’s professed love of California punk and psych culture, from The Descendents through to Ty Segall.”
