Artist: The Dark Colours Since 1685
Label: Self-released, 2013
When I first downloaded 'The Preacher Don't Care' from The Dark Colours Since 1685 via Aaahh Records, I didn't know that they had released their full album before. I found two albums released on their bandcamp, including 'MDCLXXXV' where 'The Preacher Don't Care' is in.
Five raw rock and roll/garage ear-kickin' songs come up as the opening, 'Midnight Train', shakes your body like the old days. Some bottles of beer, heavy smoke, and little bar where the picture of rock and roll God - Stones, Stooges, Ramones, you name it - hung up on the wall. It is the best picture you can have in mind when noisy dirty riff in all these songs lick your ears, up-beat tempo and sing-along-able hooks pump up your blood. Finally, without any nonsense of publicity, they are one of the oldschool rock and roll defenders, the ancient-riff fetish, and to this kind of band we should pour out our gratitude: the root is saved once more.
