ETT - 017 - The Real Energy - Beyond Delay LP

Out Now!!!

Get it here: The Real Energy - Beyond Delay LP

Previously called The Energy:

“It has been said many times and in many ways the what the world needs now is another rock and roll band." This could very well be the one of which the pundits spoke.

500 are made - 500 on black vinyl + The Real Energy Poster Insert.

The Real Energy are a serial killer blues band and they come up with a potent combination of garage squeal and feedback, don't-give-a-shit vocals and a sense of melody that borrows from '60s girl groups and psychedelic pop. The whole thing has a wonderful and natural devil-may-care attitude that can be severely lacking in today's bloated, pretentious and often histrionic rock world. I thought punk was supposed to kill all that? The Real Energy are quite unique at what they do and they are everything but yet another generic and predictable rocknroll band. First of all, most of the songs on The Real Energy's third record are more than three minutes long… The song structures are repetitive but always fueled with sonic and riff-heavy garage punk rock parts which are written intelligently (and I'm not saying that in a pretentious way). Repetitive riffs are always accompanied with background noise and feedback, killer solos and melodies which reflect the psychedelic side of the 60's and 70's garage + glam rock, and you can even hear some glam rock influences. You just get everything you love in let‘s just call it, what it is - rocknroll.

The crisp and exacting music of THE REAL ENERGY has been a long time coming, although the group itself was formed only shortly before the inspired recording of their first album. THE REAL ENERGY consists of four parts: composers Triplett and Bates performing on electric guitar and vocals respectively; Josh Wolf, percussionist, bronze god, pulse of the rhythm section; and bass guitarist Chris “Chris Ryan” Ryan. For the past ten years or so each of these fellows has been pursuing his own private destiny within the confines of the “punk rock jungle.” Their varied apprenticeships include stints with infamous groups from past decades and more recent sorties such as the short-lived but illustrious “Ultimate Spinach.” As is so rarely the case, the whole of THE REAL ENERGY is greater than the sum of its parts, and the newly formed amalgam threatens to undermine the foundations of the rock power elite.

Thus treads heavily the titanic THE REAL ENERGY, casting a long shadow upon the contemporary rock wasteland, aspiring to spill its seed on barren ground, and at the same time, struggling to make sense out of the flotsam and jetsam of its eclectic musical heritage. With a solid first album under its belt, and with an ever-expanding reputation as a dynamic performing group, it would appear that THE REAL ENERGY’s place on the American musical scene is assured.
