Amazing Snakeheads Vinyl Records
Amphetamine BalladsAt a time when most of what passes for alternative rock sounds desiccated, Amphetamine Ballads feels raw and potent and alive.” – The Guardian
“The Amazing Snakeheads’ debut album Amphetamine Ballads is not for prissy pants, it growls and grimaces across filthy blues like a pub fight in Nashville.” - Noisey
“Amphetamine Ballads showcases a group with good taste, and the ability to cook up an adrenalised racket or a melancholy fog. […] As long as boring bands exist, this kind of piss and vinegar will always be welcome.” - NME
Domino Records is proud to present Amphetamine Ballads, the debut album from Glasgow’s The Amazing Snakeheads. A monument to the redemptive powers of rock ‘n’ roll — full of rage, romance and dark humor — Amphetamine Ballads is an uncompromising, astonishingly visceral debut album. On the strength of early singles and their live shows, The Amazing Snakeheads have established themselves as a force of nature not to be reckoned with and one of the most promising rock ’n’ roll bands to come out of the UK in ages.
Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland the Amazing Snakeheads — Dale Barclay, William Coombe & Jordan Hutchison — look like they sound: all pomade, shades, denim, leather and signet rings. Amphetamine Ballads is the soundtrack to the dark corners of nightclubs and those dimly lit alleyways off the main drag. The smell of smoke and liquor pervades everything. Recorded at night time at The Green Door Studio in Glasgow, this is a subterranean record – an album that can show you round the parts of a city that come alive after dark.
The Amazing Snakeheads never really formed as such — their conception seemingly more preordained than planned. Dale and William had been friends since childhood; Jordan was Dale’s neighbor who became a close friend. While they each played music, they never really harboured ambitions to play in bands – the prospect of aiming high and missing was almost enough to put the trio off even trying. When the band finally got together and started playing shows, their shows quickly gained an infamous reputation. On stage, Dale appears possessed by music, rock’n’roll channeled through every sinew in his body. Announcing themselves in the summer of 2013 with a one-off 7”, a ferocious 84-second long strut called “Testifying Time,” the band’s reputation was quickly solidified. And now with Amphetamine Ballads set for release this summer, The Amazing Snakeheads will deliver on the promise on those live shows and early singles!1. I’m A Vampire
