Royal Hangmen- Hell Yeah 7”. When you think about Swiss garage rock, you probably think about bands like The Sevens, Nightbirds, Come n’ Go and Bad Generation. But the newest band leading the pack, by far, are the Royal Hangmen. On their second 7” ‘Hell Yeah’, they dial up 4 searing tracks of 60s-styled garage rock spewing with fuzzed-out guitars, thumping drums and a liberating Hammond organ. They do a pretty good job of capturing the sounds of ‘65 and ‘66, mainly through bands like the Shadows of Knight and early Stones as well as throwing in a few screamers that remind me a little of the revival bands like the Morlocks and the Fuzztones. Vocalist Vasco Saxer has the attitude and pipes to sell lyrics like “She Told Me Lies” and the guitars always seem to have just the right tone and work really with the organ. Their last album on Screaming Apple was really good, but this new 7” is on a whole ‘nother level. Great follow up! Import from Germany.
