Slovenly Recordings welcomes Berlin, Germany’s suave rock’n’roll true-believers SLANDER TONGUE to their stable of international beat group sensations! On their debut, self-titled LP we have a heady brew of solid gold Real Kids vibes, with guitar solos that don’t allow for the passing of urine during between-song pauses.
Think of Johnny Thunders sharing a ride with Fred “Sonic” Smith, while Ian Hunter and Chris Bailey are drunk in the backseat howling along to a beat up tape of “Goat’s Head Soup.” Birthed at a sonic orgy in the V.I.P. closet at Berlin’s famed Wowsville haunt, Slander Tongue slithered out to the crowd as a four headed beast with its ass planted firmly and forevermore at the bar. With lead duties vociferously handled by Automatic Axel of Bikes / Modern Pets, and propelled by King Khan and his Shrines sticks man Johnboy Adonis together with local roll-idols Klaus H. and Chico M., Slander Tongue has got its rhythm stripped down to the bare essentials, and their bluesy boogie set to wiggle ya from a grimy dancefloor to the boudoir.
After a double-45-debut on WILD WAX RECORDS and BACHELOR RECORDS, SLANDER TONGUE realized their debut LP through SLOVENLY RECORDINGS in February 2020. Their brandnew single “Ride / Lockdown” is to be released in February 2021.
