Psychedelic-punk-blues damaged garage skrunk, 60 cycle hum, free thunk, fortified with metallic orange and purple crunk!!!
Thee Arthur Layne started in the Fall of 2011 with four good friends needing to create a ritual space to play music and explore sonic landscapes. The sound that was conjured from those first electric sessions was raw, heavy, and a fascinating blend of the loves and influences that form the sensibilities each of the players.
The core of Thee Arthur Layne's sound is a perfect example of taking elements of what has come before and creating something raw, unique, and intriguing. You get heavy numbers that shimmy and skid over punk and blues and 1970's hard rock– with a dose of broken soul to create a sound that’s altogether lovely and terrifying.
Call it wizard rock, basement psych, proto punk, rustbelt underground rock, whatever, this is sure fire fucking rock n roll!!! The sort that never had stage props or groupies or stupid reviews to bolster the image or rock and roll over its content and primal urges.
