Out this Friday is the first full length LP from Hidden Volume Records. Object To Be Destroyed by The Improbables. This is glorious stomping ripping fuzzed out garage madness. When I was mentioning my favorite labels a few weeks back , Hidden Volume was on that list. Let me elaborate a little more about that. Scott from Hidden Volume Records is one of the coolest guys I have ever met. The weekend Scott put together at Field Trip South is something I will never forget. Scott made me a part of The Hidden Volume Crew and I loved every minute of it. Scott has a vision, he gets things done, he’s a doer and a good friend of mine. He works like a crazy man, responsible adult with a grown up job, Dad, in The Stents and runs my favorite record label, Hidden Volume.I’m telling you he deserves more praise than I could ever give him. Object To Be Destroyed by The Improbables is the first LP put out by Hidden Volume. I suggest you pre-order yours today.
The Improbables initially formed in mid-1990s South Jersey out of a mutually and subsequently expanding love for Link Wray, Bo Diddley, the Cramps, Billy Childish, the Damned, Estrus Records, and the English Freakbeat comps. Spurred at the time by an oddly thriving Atlantic City independent music scene, the band honed their frenetic live set on the stage of the now defunct McGuire’s Erin Bar and at a variety of Philadelphia venues. The Imps saw numerous lineup shifts over the ensuing years, disbanded for a while, and since reforming have established themselves as one of Philly’s premier rock’n’roll trios. They have played with the likes of the Lyres, Lilys, and the Detroit Cobras, as well as with Hidden Volume labelmates The Stents and Louie Louie. In 2014, Hi-Vo released their “Bad Vibrations” (HV007) single and a follow up split single (HV0015) in 2015 (with The Stents)—both quickly sold out.
Equal parts 60-70’s garage, soul, psychedelia and punk, the band’s songs recall and preserve those moments in the life of rock ‘n’ roll when it was able to be self-aware without being self-conscious, and when a good time was inevitable.
Object To Be Destroyed” 12 songs of highly toxic fuzz and thunder that recall everything from early MC5 and The Yardbirds to The Mickey Finn and maybe even The Photon Band. The sound is Beck-ian waves of blistering guitar meets early 60s ballads meets late 60s heavy rock—yep, this one has it all. This is the SWIRL edition (in Oxblood Red and Bone White), comes with digital download card and full color insert.
Includes digital pre-order of Object To Be Destroyed. You get 2 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released.
