In need of the king Riff!

I was wondering today what would my people expect when visiting the Secret Vinyl Conspiracy?

I thought about great covers. I thought about good music. And I thought about that tasty smoking vinyl sound of course.
So I started thinking about one great cover. Tons came to my mind.

And then I started thinking about some phat riffage. And it all SUDDENLY came clear : FU MANCHU's "Godzilla"!

This 10" released on Frank Kozik's Man's Ruin Record label (did I ever tell you I was a Man's Ruin completist?) is one great slab of see-thru plastic.

As everybody know it, "Godzilla" is a BLUE ÖYSTER CULT cover, but the 2 other cuts are pure FU MANCHU at their best, so you know what to expect : hellrising groove and some of the heaviest riffs.

I really like that record and would never trade it for any other guitar-driven craze.

I have to mention that Mr Homme contributes some additional percussion, that it was recorded at Rancho de la Luna and that EARTHLINGS?' geniuses Drake & Catching engineered this baby.


ENJOY the ride!
