“Space Probe Taurus wrote some of the best riffs and songs early Monster Magnet never did!”
This April, acclaimed hard-hitting acid rockers Space Probe Taurus congregate with fellow psych worshippers Ripple Music to release their latest foray into the world of biker-flicks, lysergic rock ‘n’ roll and feral fuzz.
Ladies and gentlemen, may we present for your listening pleasure ‘The Iguana’, taken from their soon to be unleashed new album Mondo Satan – https://soundcloud.com/ripplemusic/09-the-iguana-space-probe-taurus-ripple-music
Originally formed as Snake Machine in 1992 it wasn’t until a name change and shortening of their songs in ’97 that the band settled into doing what they do best; preaching the gospel of dirty garage rock. Swedish style.
Often compared to the likes of Mudhoney, The Stooges, MC5 and Blue Cheer – the latter of whom SPT paid tribute to with a ripping cut of ‘Second Time Around’ on Black Widow Records’ Blue Explosion – their music is influenced by late ’60s psych rock and low-budget B-movies like Psychomania and Angels From Hell. (An obsession that quickly led on to the band contributing music to the 2005 snuff documentary Actress Apocalypse and I Am Vengeance in 2012.)
Mondo Satan is the band’s follow up to their self-titled debut album from 2008 and will be released worldwide via Ripple Music on 28th April 2015.
