The Fleshtones

Often tagged as garage rock revivalists, the Fleshtones mix the fuzz guitar and Farfisa organ sounds of that genre with rockabilly, '50s and '60s R&B, and surf into a potent retro stew the group likes to call "super rock." The group formed in 1976 in Queens, New York with vocalist/keyboardist Peter Zaremba, guitarist Keith Streng, bassist Jan Marek Pakulski, and drummer Bill Milhizer and aimed to return rock & roll to the simplicity and unselfconsciousness of the '50s and early '60s. (The group was often joined on-stage and in the studio by sax player Gordon Spaeth, who passed on in 2005.) The group fit nicely into New York's punk and new wave scene, and an early single, "American Beat," attracted the attention of independent label Red Star and, in time, IRS. The group's debut EP, Up-Front, was released in 1980 and was followed by its first full-length album, Roman Gods, and Blast Off!, an unreleased studio album recorded for Red Star in 1978.

Hexbreaker, widely regarded as the Fleshtones' finest album, arrived in 1983. The band continued to record through the '80s and released Powerstance in 1992 and Beautiful Light in 1994. (Powerstance also marked the debut of new Fleshtones bassist Ken Fox, who replaced Pakulski in the lineup and has been with the group ever since.) While the group's popularity dipped under the radar in the last half of the '90s, in 2003 the Fleshtones bounded back when they were signed to the potent indie label Yep Roc Records and released one of their best albums, Do You Swing? An equally solid follow-up, Beachhead, was issued in 2005 and was produced in part by Detroit garage rock kingpin Jim Diamond. In 2008, more than 30 years after the Fleshtones formed, they released Take a Good Look, proving their ability to be just as raucous as they were in the good ol' days, and a few months later, the group dropped its first Christmas-themed release, Stocking Stuffer.

The band brought in Lenny Kaye to guest on guitar for 2011's Brooklyn Sound Solution, a change-of-pace album dominated by covers and interwoven guitar work, and in 2012 the Fleshtones tipped their hats to their Spanish-speaking fans with a four-song EP recorded en español, Quatro x Quatro. The Fleshtones returned to typically raucous form for 2014's Wheel of Talent, a set recorded in Spain, Detroit, and Brooklyn. Fleshtones side projects have included Keith Streng's band Full Time Men, which featured R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck; Peter Zaremba's Love Delegation; and the Master Plan, featuring Streng and Milhizer collaborating with Andy Shernoff of the Dictators. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Hexbreaker their finest album? I don't think so. Roman Gods!

They are playin @ a small garage band style club in Baltimore May 30th
Too bad Pandora doesn't have access to more of their catalog. The Fleshtones have released many good records over the years, particularly "Laboratory of Sound", "Beautiful Light" and "Roman Gods". A new (2010) collection of their early material is available too - "It's Super Rock Time!:The IRS Years". I saw them in '85 and was instantly hooked.

Don't miss seeing this band live!! They still tour a lot, especially across Europe. It is hard to believe that after all of these years, they are still flying under the radar, but that makes for very fun and intimate shows.
I saw these guys last night at a local bar in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. I've never heard of them before, but let me tell you, they put on a dynomite show and I will go and see them every time they are in town. The Fleshtones play with very high energy and crowd interaction. They played on top of the bar, invited members of the crowd to sing along into the mic, and even let some play their guitars and bass while they danced around.
