Superhot Records – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Metal, Doom, Grunge
Rated: ****


Knebworth, home to some legendary gigs and festivals. But also home to a trio going by the insane moniker Trippy Wicked & The Cosmic Children of The Knight. Aah yes, we’re in for some wild times! It must even be crazier then that other band two of the members belong to: Stubb. That also shines through in the fact that the guys produced a concept album with music from all hard rocking affiliated genres. Instead of telling tales of death, demise and doom these guys do things differently and tell of a mad adventure: one weird and twisted night from the moment one decides to go home and actually getting home. After a recent interview with Bob Mould it immediately made me think of the Hüsker Dü album Zen Guerrilla. Not in a sonic sense ofcourse; for we are treated to some grade a grooves here with metallic overtones, progressive structuring and heavy hitting stoner. It’s extremely diverse, psychedelic and tricky. Cause the beauty is evident from the get-go; the apparent brilliance takes a while to sink in. My ears are still ringing from Going Home…
