Sky Valley Mistress Cover The Stooges
It's no rumour that we love a bit of Sky Valley Mistress here at Manchester Rocks. Having already done a great desert-baked stoner rock version of Black Sabbath's Paranoid, the band have now smashed through a rendition of The Stooges' classic, Search And Destroy, which you can see below.
Recorded and mixed at Den Studios by Nick Gizzi, it sounds as feral and as brilliant as the original.
Says Manchester Rocks on their recent headline show at the Night & Day Cafe:
"Tonight at the Night & Day the benefits of their road dog mentality are clear to see; they’re tighter than a duck's arse yet unshackled and free-wheeling all the same. This may just be the best performance I've ever seen them unleash. It's terrifying just how forceful a live act they are. Maxwell is tonight possessed by the wild child spirit of John Bonham, he’s the beating sheer heart attack, the screaming pulse to the opening one-two or The Lion and Smoke Fairy. They are simply sensational, all gruff, stoner riffs built on top of a bed of jagged, sinister blues shuffles and quilted by Kayley Louise's hellion falsetto. The way they merge the two songs together with a complete lack of mercy is staggering. In the final throes of the latter she lets out a staggering ten second plus scream; the power and beauty behind it unrivalled."
