A BlankTV Premiere Presentation:
Lecherous Gaze - "New Distortion"
The history of Lecherous Gaze goes back to 2001 when guitarist Graham Clise and bassist Chris Grande started the hardcore punk band, Annihilation Time. After several personnel shake-ups, drummer Noel Sullivan was brought into the fold as the band toured relentlessly across the US and Europe. Steeping themselves in the Hendrix-tripped guitar-god worship of bombastic 70’s rock and the primordial 60s rockin’ rawness of Chuck Berry, Clise and company’s hard-core of Flag and Sabbath worship congealed into a sticky sweet nug of potent hard rock hash.They soon enlisted the help of long time friend, Zaryan Zaidi of the band Char-Man to join the Gaze as their new front man. With his raspy Beefheart/Howlin’ Wolf delivery coupling with the aggressively dark tones of Alice Cooper, Zaryan gelled perfectly with the frustrated and heavy sonic assault the band had been building up for release since the break up of Annihilation Time. October 2012 sees the release of the debut full length 3 years in the making; which with its maelstromic mixture of heavy rock riffage, punk snarl attitude, and Zep-like attention to detail, comes across as a heshers record collection melted together into one crushing slab of volcanic rock and roll.
