James Williamson & Deniz Tek: il disco

165

Si erano incontrati per la prima volta nel 2011 durante il concerto tributo a Ron Asheton degli Stooges. James Williamson e Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman/The Visitors/New Race…) avevano bissato quell’incontro nel 2013 a Sydney durante il reunion tour degli Stooges realizzando un EP di cover (‘Acoustic K.O.’) proprio della seminale band americana. Ora il 70enne Williamson e il 67enne dottor Tek decidono che è venuto il momento di fare sul serio pubblicando il disco ‘Two To One’ che sarà fuori il 18 settembre via Cleopatra Records. Il tutto viene anticipato da ‘Stable’.

Williamson: “It was really a lot of fun working with Deniz to make a no-frills, good old-fashioned guitar album. Took me back to Raw Power and Kill City days. Deniz comes from a very similar approach to music that I do, both of us have had many years of experience in Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan”.

Tek: “Raw Power shaped my path as a young guitar player. It was great to partner up with James to make this album. Everything fell into place beyond expectations – the songs, the band, the production, and even the timing. I am very happy with it”.
