LORDS OF ALTAMONT
are a rock and roll band from Los Angeles, California. The band mixes the sounds of '60s garage and psychedelic rock, American punk rock, British rhythm and blues and glam combined with B-movie biker exploitation imagery. Past and present line-ups of The Lords of Altamont have included members of The Bomboras, The Fuzztones. The MC5 and The Cramps. As of 2017 the band has released six albums on various labels including the newest, The Wild Sounds of the Lords of Altamont, on Heavy Psych Sounds Records.
The current lineup consists of Jake "The Preacher" Cavaliere, lead vocalist and Farfisa organ, Dani Sin, guitar, Rob "The Garbageman", bass guitar, and Steven 'Knuckles' Van der Werff on drums.
The story of the band has its proper start in late 1999. Veterans of the SoCal music scene Jake Cavaliere and Johnny Devilla, late of the instro/surf juggernaut The Bomboras, were looking to form something new. Max Eidson, Doran Shelley, and Gabriel Hammond rounded out the original lineup known as "The First Five". Their first show was at the legendary venue The Garage in Hollywood. Through personnel changes and various challenges over the last 17years The Lords of Altamont have continued to release albums and play for fans around the world. High points include touring as the support act for their primitive rock n roll idols The Cramps and counting Michael Davis of the MC5 as a past member.
A high-energy live show, in-your-face riffs and a “fuck you” attitude!
The Bitch Queens sound isn’t just plain 1-2-3-4 Punk Rock. Next to the straight beats and three-chord verses there’s plenty of room for some finesse. Here you’ll find a ton of influences on display: It’s a street fight with the Stooges and the Backyard Babies, while next door the Dead Boys are drinking beer with Turbonegro. They have been on the road since 2008 and have proven themselves in countless shows and a bunch of tours through Europe and Japan. With Mascara and glitter oozing through their veins, there may be no other Swiss formation that can kick more ass on stage or throw a better afterparty than the Bitch Queens.
