TRACK PREMIERE: HAMMERED SATIN “SILVER STREAK”
In the grand and greasy tradition of obscuro Euro glammers like Mothers of Track, Clutch and Dave Dean, L.A.’s own Hammered Satin turn in this grinding salute to the easy rider, complete with start-it-up motorcycle sound effects. As one might expect from a band that opened for the mighty Giuda, it’s got everything a good glam song demands: riffs, rhythm, soaring guitar solos and lots of spots to yell HEY! (And it’s a nice intro to a revamped lineup now including guitarist Beth Boyd from the Flytraps and drummer Victor Penalosa of the Zeros and the Flamin Groovies, who join Noah Wallace, Conor Behrle and Dan Sandvick.) They’ll play March 8 at Harvard and Stone, but you can get their “Silver Streak” single digitally now. (It’ll hit vinyl this summer on Rad Cat.) And Hammered Satin’s Noah will DJ with Don Bolles at their Velvet Tinmine glam night at the Monty on Fri., Mar. 2, for the official Burger-A-Go-Go afterparty!
