Hound Gawd! Records release the new Morlocks album titled, Bring On The Mesmeric Condition. The band was founded by Leighton Koizumi, singer for San Diego's most outrageous garage rock revival band, Gravedigger V. Through break-ups, break downs, personnel changes, changing cities, and shifts in popular culture, The Morlocks have continually grown stronger. Surprising, then, that in 1999, Spin Magazine printed an inaccurate story declaring the death of their energetic, charismatic lead singer Leighton Koizumi. Needless to say, Leighton (far from being dead) continues to lead the charge, a duty he has held since the band's debut LP Emerge (1985). The Morlocks have continued to perform and make records, a number of which have been featured prominently in movies, television shows, and video games. Now, the re-vamped and resurrected, the Morlocks are ready to spread their wings like a Phoenix rising from the ashes. Currently based out of Düsseldorf, Germany Leighton has enlisted a who's who of European fuzz masters. Starting with Rob Louwers on drums (Fuzztones, Q-65, Link Wray), Oliver Pilsner on bass (Fuzztones, Cheeks, Montesas, Magnificent Brotherhood), Bernadette on guitar (Sonny Vincent, Humpers), and Marcello Salis (Gravedigger V, Hangee V). Recorded by Alaska Winter at various secret locations in Germany, including stops in "The Black Forests" of Freiburg, the seedy underbelly of the Rhine (Düsseldorf/Köln) and East-meets-West (Berlin). Mixed and mastered by the notorious Jim Diamond of Dirtbombs fame, to give it that special "Motor City" grit and grease that is required on a Morlock record. Alas it´s been a while since the release of The Morlocks Play Chess (2010), Bring On The Mesmeric Condition features something never before offered on a Morlocks LP: all original songs!
