Get down on the git down! Solid Brown is a soul trash rock´n´roll deathbeam album full of dirty soul and and proto-punk rawk titles by our favorite Brooklyn, NYC crime family. Their constant switching of the lead vocals, their love & fights makes the live show an experience of the anarchic GHETTO WAYS adventure.
Yes, this is a black, yet brown garage rock record in its primal sense! The gospel-fervour, the roaring guitars, the raucous bashing breaking-ranks drumming, the stunning soul lead vocals and heartful screams and undeniable thunderous rhythm...
Suspected of poaching in the STAX records box, getting OBLIVIANS, STOOGES, CRIME, DEAD BOYS on the one and DIRTBOMBS, BELLRAYS references on the other hand it´s not possible to steer the GHETTO WAYS too far in any direction, which solely speaks for them. It´s a kick in the balls. It´s naked and real.

"Loud, unrestrained and inconsiderate music, their songs are rougher than savages." —OX MAGAZINE (Germany)
“A KILLER trio outta Brooklyn whose raunchy set completely floored me, kinda like a more soulful version of Oblivians.” —LOWCUT (Denmark)
“GHETTO WAYS are banging out some new kind of primal rock, like you smashed the old rock machine and put your sound together out of the broken pieces.” —ROCK OF JAPAN (USA)
