Album Review

Former Drive Like Jehu members Rick Froberg and John Reis (also a member of Rocket From the Crypt) and drummer Jason Kourkounis of Delta 72 shred rock & roll to pieces on the Hot Snakes debut. Automatic Midnight, an album full of noisy guitar and dominating rhythms, hardcore thrash, and Swervedriver atmosphere, starts off with the charged-up, frenetic live wire that is "If Credit's What Matters I'll Take Credit." Throughout the rest of the rapid-fire record, Hot Snakes go from the dark, showdown sound of "10th Planet" to the slightly Sonic Youth-circa-Daydream Nation grind of "Light Up the Stars" and on through the chant-along anthem "Our Work Fills the Pews." The album finishes off with "Let It Come," a hard/soft dynamic, shout-and-holler ride that would fit well alongside At the Drive-In. Always intense, always destructive, the Hot Snakes, like Black Flag, play their rock & roll all-out with their sights set on anything or anyone in their path.

Biography

Formed: 1999

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Hot Snakes consist of guitarist/vocalists John Reis and Rick Froberg, drummer Jason Kourkounis, and bassist Gar Wood.

Meanwhile, drummer Kourkounis had been affiliated with the Delta 72, but he may or may not have changed his name to J Sinclair for the new group. Confused? That's likely how...
