MATT FRAZA BAND
Firehouse 13, Providence, RI
Firehouse 13 is in the middle of a war zone and the inside is dark and dirty, but at least they have a stage and a PA system. Vertical Twin is playing when I enter. They are a bit older of a band than I’m used to seeing. They are a little old to be Green Day and a little young to be The Who, but I see where they get their power trio influences from. Vertical Twin plays high energy rock ’n’ roll and put on a good show, the singer is funny and entertaining, it’s a great way to start the night, though I may have missed two earlier bands. Monument Thief take the stage next. Monument Thief is a Providence based bass and drums duo, but don’t compare them to Lightning Bolt! They play straight up rock and the bass sounds like a guitar player without solos. It’s really good alternative rock that reminds me of my childhood. I’ve had a few drinks by now and I’m ready for a great band to top off a cool night. sadly, the Matt Fraza Band is unable to deliver the goods. Boring Dave Mathews, Jimmy Buffet type generic garbage. Hey, guitar player, stand up, this is a rock ’n’ roll concert, man. I’m afraid if I see their whole set I’ll fall asleep at the wheel and I don’t even have a car. At least I have an excuse to get on the bike and head home early. (Terry Boulder)

Outlaw in Peru – OIP
Outlaw In Peru claim to hail from Providence, but they could just as well come from outer space. There are a few biker rock kind of songs that cruise along in a cool way. What I’m really digging here are trippy Steppenwolf or Hawkwind sounding gems, the really long songs that let the psyche guitar rip. Outlaw In Peru worked with one of my favorite lyricists Mike Mountain on much of this record and its cool to hear his words in a different soundscape and a different voice. Let your brain be the venue and check this album out with headphones and whatever it is you take to relax. Enjoy the trip!

These three fugitives from justice, have been jamming together for a year now. They met in a peruvian penal colony, singing in the prison death metal choir. Breaking rocks in the hot sun, they fought the law & the law won.
Mark Suburbanite was arrested for giving cannabinoid donuts to police when he worked the drive thru at donas clavada. He bats left handed, likes to cuddle, and provides that fat fuzzy bottom.
Tu-lo was incarcerated for sleep jaywalking and not identifying himself to police. ZZZzzz was not the name monogrammed on his footie pajamas. He collects hand stamps, loves dogs, sunsets & destroying drum kits.
Jose was driving 20mph on the highway, when he was pulled over for going too slow. He refused to respond when police knocked on the window, singing “I hear ju knockin but chu can’t come in”. He was tazed and confused for so long its not true, wanted Doritos, never bargained for 10-20yrs.. Jose collects wigs, likes ballroom dancing and coating his guitar strings with honey, to slide smoothly up the neck. Extra buzz comes from the bees in his bonnet.
Michael Montagano wrote to them in prison. The contents of his letters forming the lyrics for most songs. He is the Bernie to their Elton. Performing with the band Mike Mountain is his day job.
OIP play long jams, interspersed with tenor poetry, thick fuzzy green sweaters, old movies playing in the background while the beats flow. Influenced by Bunnydrums, Earthless, Mike Mountain, Harsh Toke, Hawkwind, Can, The Sword, Shabbas, Derek Trucks, Dust & Phillip K. Dick….
Chilling at their hide out in Central Falls, the gang just released their jams to the world. Double bock stoner rock with a thick fuzzy coating. Slippery guitar, fuzz bass, heavy drums. They cannot show their faces in many places, unless it’s guitar pose faces, or orgasm faces… on the run & looking for fun…Contact our FB page if you would like a date. Law enforcement need not apply…
