2. An early name of Grateful Dead
3. An early name of The Velvet Underground

1. The Warlocks are an American rock band based out of Los Angeles. Their music has been defined as , but much of it spans multiple genres.
After forming in 1999, the ever-changing personnel of The Warlocks meant that the band had already toured nineteen different members before it was slimmed to the classic seven-piece outfit that established their reputation. Consisting of Bobby Hecksher (Vocals/Guitar), J.C. Rees (guitar), Ryan McBride (guitar), Jenny Fraser (Bass), Laura Grigsby (Tambourine/Keys), Bob Mustachio (Drums) and Jason Anchondo (Drums) - their two drummers with four guitarists formation produced a relentless, hypnotic wall of sound that suggested a collision between classic , and The Velvet Underground-style rock and roll.
Front man Bobby Hecksher grew up in the swamps of Tampa Bay, Florida where he was practically raised at a radio station owned his Grandfather and where his mum also worked as a secretary. As a result Bobby was soon eating and breathing rock’n’roll on a daily basis.
Bobby recalls, “My granddad was an inspiration. He created the radio station out of thin air. And from it all these nuggets of rock’n’roll came toward me”.
At sixteen his family left the swamps and moved to LA where Bobby soon found kindred spirits.

    Great stuff! But MAN do they sound like the Brian Jonestown Massacre... Listening to the records in chronological order, and some songs are almost close to plagiarism tbh, not that i mind all that much, can't get too much of BJM... but still, some moments feel almost stolen, hmm.. conflicted feelings

    скажу честно, я у них слушал только 2007 год, и малость прихуел. музыка редкой интенсивности, не то что вся прочая неопсиходелическая поебота, таким и должен быть настоящий американский инди рок.
