The Buttertones Overdrive Surf Garage – New Video – Sadie’s A Sadist

Keep your grapes peeled and your ears to the ground because The Buttertones are ripping it up.

With the loungey groove of Chicano Batman and as the band themselves say: “a sound that takes everything good and true about American music before the Beatles prettied it up (surf, sweet soul, the boss saxophone-overdrive garage of the Northwest wailers like the Sonics) and matches it to punk energy, post-punk precision and the kind of personality that blows the circuit-breakers at a backyard party.”

Sadie’s A Sadist is from their forthcoming record Gravedigging (out March 31) and I have a feeling this one will be high on the Best of the Year list.

Domestic now, but spent mid-teens to mid-twenties playing drums in a glam rock band in Toronto. Since then I have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
