The Cleveland tag-team of Tom and Scott Eakin--formerly of The Dark, The Guns, and Knifedance--return with a sonic musical implosions influenced by the Detroit sound of the Stooges, MC5, et al., as well as Motorhead, and every other hard rocking and hard drinking outfit around. The latest lineup features Tony Erba of Face Value, H-100’s, 9 Shocks Terror, and Gordon Solie Motherfuckers on bass, and Aaron Dowell from Marky Ramone and the Intruders on guitar!
Of interests to collector scum: Grand Theft Audio is planning a Guns and Dark retrospective CDs for release soon.
SCENE MAGAZINE 3/28 said: “...it’s actually two records squeezed onto one disc...the first album has a visceral edge to it that suggests that the band isn’t exaggerating when it bills itself as ‘dark and twisted Cleveland Stoogepunk’...the second half of the disc kicks out greasy garage rock jams with all the sweaty fervor of Nashville Pussy or Mudhoney!”
MARK MURRMANN at BlankGeneration.com said: “...the vocals sound like a rusted circular saw cutting through sheet metal and the guitars do a great job of sounding every bit as menacing...when Step Sister hit the gas peddle, they really hit it.”
MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #217 said: “They’re following a twisted road music-wise: jagged guitars, lurching rhythns, dark lyrical content. I actually quite admire these boys!”
