"After last year's already legendary reunion shows, New York City's infamous garage/punk-blues/noise kings the Chrome Cranks are once again ready to roundly kick the world squarely in its soft, pathetic, and pain-deserving ass--this time with two more hotly anticipated performances: at the Cake Shop in New York on May 28 and the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on May 29.The shows are tonight (5/28) at Cake Shop and Saturday at Knitting Factory. More details and a video below...
2009's visceral and devastating shows in New York and Europe by the Chrome Cranks' best and best-known lineup--vocalist/guitarist Peter Aaron, guitarist William Weber, drummer Bob Bert, and bassist Jerry Teel--were a revelation for long-time fans as well as those who'd missed the band during its 1990s heyday. Indeed, many raved that the Cranks are better now than they were the first time around. Since the reunion the group has remained together, working on material for a new album that promises to be every bit as blistering--if not more--than the quartet's pivotal '90s releases."
