There’s a lot of genre-bating in music,maybe it’s that part of the man brain that wants to put the right size screw in its special drawer.
Well Nunchucker will tell you can just fuck that whole thing off.Influences?steal from anywhere,steal from the best-and make it yours.
It’s the whole Rock and nothing but the rock,no lubricants,no water to wash it down with…dry mouth? tough you are about to eat rock.
Nunchucker is riff based Rock n Roll that draws on anything that will serve the song-it’s about melodic solos (not a who’s fastest gym workout) real chords not some fancy stretchy thing with extra fingers,dirty grimy sleazy backstairs fucking riffs and crafted songs that will ear-worm into your brain.
Lyrics that invariably rhyme,songs that don’t go on for 20 minutes -(get to the fucking point already )about no compromise rocking the hard life and not succumbing to the bullshit that non-rock n rollers call their paltry lives.
This is the classic rock you been praying for brothers and sisters-get your boots on…..and…
Chuck out the Nuns – motherfuckers.
London Rock n’ Rollers NUNCHUCKER represent a bridge between the Classic Rock of cherished memory and a new fresh take on those roots of Rock and Heavy Metal.
Genreless, their songwriting craft is without peer in our era.It takes in PUNK,SLEAZE,BOOGIE,GREBO,STONER on its merry way but overall it’s a service to riffs and melody that makes these songs stick to you, sews them into your skin like a well loved jacket patch.The guitar solos alone are crafted,written ear worms..none of your 8 million notes a second blurt-outs here, these solos are dredged up from the ether.
Chris Tate’s vocals have that smoky edge..a laconic snake like feel that reeks of misbehaviour.
The lyrics range from sex laden trials and tribulations of the wandering soul to the more esoteric with dashes of humour-like life.
Ultimately these are memorable songs that sit comfortably next to the classics. ….This is the classic Rock n’ Roll you’ve been praying for Brothers and Sisters!….
The band coalesced in the naughties around a notorious and short lived Sunday all day drinking club called ‘Lazy Cow’-frequented by various Camden Town actors, comedians and musicians..it would get going at lunchtime but the impact would usually spin into the following week.
Nunchucker started writing back then but abandoned things after a few songs..after a long hiatus in other bands a couple of the songs resurfaced last year-writing and recording began again and ‘Motherfucker Superior’ is the result…a relentless hummable nugget of big choruses melodic solos and classic raw n roll.
‘We went to the riff goldmine…turns out it was deserted and gold still lying about all over the place…so we filled our pockets, then our boots too’-Chris
‘EVERY BIT AS SNOTTY AND ILL-MANNERED AS YOU’D HOPE’ – MAXIMUM VOLUME
TIGHT AS A GNATS CHUFF NUNCHUCKER DEAL IN FULL BORE, NO NONSENSE ROCK N ROLL THAT HARKS BACK TO LESS COMPLICATED TIMES, WHEN HARD ROCK HELD SWAY OVER THE EARTH. DOWNRIGHT AND DIRTY, BOOTY SHAKING BOOGIE THAT WILL LEAVE YOU IN NEED OF A GOOD SCRUB! ROCK ON NUNCHUCKER!
