Guitar Wolf

Most Guitar Wolf Fans express their feelings with words like “awesome!” and “bad fuckin’ ass,” and with good reason: Their music just doesn’t lend itself to measured critical reflection. This was clear as soon as they came out in their signature black leather and sunglasses. Drum Wolf and Bass Wolf established a rhythm first, and the crowd was getting rowdy before Guitar Wolf (aka Seiji) began playing. Seiji has as much rock star charisma as it’s possible to imagine, and impressed us with his heroics, aiming his guitar at the crowd like a machine gun during “Machine Gun Guitar.” His stage patter, although difficult to make out, was also entertaining: “Motherfucker … [inaudible] motherfucker!” …

Seiji’s Ramones- and Link Wray-inspired playing is amazing, but the band’s overall guitar tone is perhaps the most distinctive aspect of their live performance — a crushing, ultra-distorted rumble not quite like any we’ve heard before. -[Nashville Scene]

Guitar Wolf‘s US tour included an appearance at Matador 21, a stop at Santos Party House on 9/23 for date with Peelander-Z, and a stop at Gonerfest 2010 where they met up with Oblivians, Ty Segall, So Cow (who played NYC last night with The Thermals), and many many others. The above review comes from Gonerfest, but the below belated set of pictures come from the madness that ensued at Santos Party House.

Peelander-Z are currently on tour, but will return to NYC on 11/20 to play Santos Party House with Starscream and current tourmates TsuShiMaMiRe. Tickets are still available.

More pictures from Santos are below…
