Pure Bastard Rock

by Geraldine

Geraldine plays high energy, honest and dirty rocknroll. They combine the best elements of early punk rock with Chess blues, (think Sonny Boy, Little Walter, and Elmore James and you're on the right track) early soul, and and a dash of British invasion st

Album Notes
Bringing non-stop rocknroll to all corners of the U.S. is what Athens, Ohio's Geraldine lives for. They have been touring extensively for the last two years; playing anywhere and everywhere that real, raw rock is appreciated. Every trashy rocknroll-hell hole in the country-from dive bars to strip clubs to roadhouses of every kind- has probably played host to Geraldine at one time or another. The band also makes regular stops in Mexico proving their brand of bluesy punknroll can get a crowd moving regardless of native language.

Geraldine's recent visits to the Southwest gave them the opportunity to record with trash-rock engineer extrordinaire, Jim Waters. Waters' credits previous credits include The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Drags, Boss Hog, Bob Log III, to name a few. In short--he's the perfect match for Geraldine-as can be heard on their debut release on Orange, appropriately titled "Pure Bastard Rock."

Known for their high energy live sets, you'd be hard pressed to find any band that could match Geraldine on a good night. This four-piece really knows how to mix up the finest bits of their musical upbringings into one strong shot of thunderous rocknroll. Geraldine's sound takes early Chicago blues and combines it with the roar and fury of 70s and 80s punk rock. Add in the stomp, swagger and soul of British Invasion and 60s garage rock, and you've got it. The result of this raucous mixing of all the right elements is the real deal, folks. Geraldine plays rocknroll as it should be -- loud, honest, dirty and with SOUL!

These guys have played and toured with the likes of The New Bomb Turks, Neckbones, Bantam Rooster, Whitestripes, The Go, The Nerves, Royal Trux, Quadrajets, The Humpers, Nashville Pussy, and countless others. They were recently chosen to share the stage with The Bellrays, Ernie K. Doe, The Woggles and more at Sleazefest in Chapel Hill NC, and have been showcased at trashrock festivals around the country. They also host their own annual blowout in Ohio known as Blackoutfest. Geraldine's recorded output includes a few singles on Anyway/Revolver (who have also put out past recordings by Gaunt, New Bomb Turks, Hellicopters, and Guided By Voices), and numerous compilation appearences. Now the band has found a home on Orange, which is proud to bring "Pure Bastard Rock" to a stereo near you.

GNARLY rock n roll
good shit from ohio. a shame they broke up...i think. saw em once and they went on after a quasi indie band who had a bunch of cheesy christmas lights and other foiliage. geraldine came out and played in the dark.
best songs: when the rooster crows;last dime to the table. crank it!!!


Really Good Stuff
I was crusing the site when I ran into this CD. It sounded good and I bought. I'm very pleased. Nice rockin noisy sound. Reminds me a bit of the Cows and the first Babes in Toyland album. Got a country twang too and throws in a ballad for variety. Sonically satisfying if you can appreciate some fuzz and don't mind dirty production. I love to see these guys live.
