MAC SABBATH

It was the Year of Our Lord 2013, and I was devouring a cheeseburger in a Chatsworth, CA franchise of a certain multinational fast food conglomerate which shall remain nameless. A crazed skull face painted, dirt-bag, clown sat down beside me. This Skeletor reject of Uriah Heap introduced himself as Ronald Osborne and was familiar with my work. I was informed that Ronald, Slayer Mac Cheeze, Grimalice, and the Cat Burglar, were performing secret rock shows in the bunker-like basements of the local restaurants. But the time had come, he said, to bring drive-thru metal up from the “underground,” and he asked if I would consider becoming the manager. BAM! Abruptly we were thrown to the sidewalk. (Apparently the daytime manager was not informed of this activity) I looked over at Ronald, watched him brush off the sodium chloride and GMO remnants of my UN happy meal. Before I knew it, I was in a burger stand bomb shelter, witnessing Black Sabbath music, hilarious fast food lyrics, smoldering clown heads with laser eyes, a giant purple gumdrop bass player, and Tony Iommi with a giant cheeseburger head. I was confused, amazed and can’t ever remember feeling so………happy!

SPEEDEALER

Texas rock n’ roll.

LUNG

Lung has a sound that is dark and commanding, evoking the driving sludge of early grunge with layered sinister undertones. The band is Kate Wakefield, a classically trained opera singer, and Daisy Caplan, formerly of Foxy Shazam, Babe Rage, and Ayin. Playing shows from Nelsonville Music Festival to famed DIY venues like 924 Gilman Street, Lung have made their presence known and developed the reputation as a “must see” band. Since their first performance in April 2016, the pair have played over 400 shows across North America, with a European tour under their belt. Their sophomore album: ‘All The King’s Horses’ landed them the title of one of Daytrotter’s ‘Top 100 bands for 2018’, and worked the crowd into a frenzy at their SXSW 2018 Official Showcase.

When able to tour, Lung lives out of the van for most of the year. The band chooses to play in mostly all-ages, non-bar venues because it’s a part of their conviction that all people deserve access to art/music. “To me, an ideal show is a collaborative effort between everyone present. Communication and exchange of ideas, musical and otherwise, drive the experience and can take everyone involved to some pretty fabulous places”, says Daisy Caplan, drummer of Lung. Touring heavily in 2019, Lung traversed Germany, Eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, co-headlined an East Coast tour with punk legends ShellShag and were poised to headline a two month run, including dates at Treefort Music Festival sharing the bill with versatile, nomadic bassist CJ Boyd when the Coronavirus hit the pause button on the world. In the unexpected downtime of 2020, Lung managed to author an entirely new album while finalizing the mastering of an already-completed full length.

On April 1st, Lung released a split LP with Dayton rockers Skrt, and plan to release their third full length album in the fall. Keep your eyes open for tour dates to come in summer 2021.

“Powerful, sinister indie rock from Cincinnati, Ohio.” — MACROCK MUSIC FESTIVAL
