"Blue Coyote Revives Rock Power Trio"

ARTIST: Blue Coyote

TITLE: “Thrown to the Skull and Bones” (Drunk Moose Records)

In “Death Car,” the first track on Blue Coyote’s new CD, “Thrown To The Skull and Bones.” the first sound you hear is a revving, roaring engine. That certainly sets the tone, as the three players Greg Platkin (bass and vocals), Rick Stearns (drums) and Jeremy Hall (guitar) do a fine job at reviving the timeless tradition of the rock power trio.

Recorded at Rat Fink Studios, this is an unholy cross between Cream, Mountain, BTO and Blue Cheer. From the aforementioned “Death Car,” “Dirty, Mean and Nasty (which is) and the slow grind of “Graveyard Shift,” the threesome know their way around a song — and their instruments — and play with uncanny power and passion. Blue Coyote is a biker festival dream band, or just play the CD and go crazy on your own.

In late 2004, Greg Platkin, Jeremy Hall and Rick Stearns got together and jammed in a basement bar, and by the time the last chord rang out, they'd made it their mission to breathe new life into rock music. Taking inspiration from Jimi Hendrix, Cream, ZZ Top and Rush – like any good power trio should – they rolled up their sleeves and cranked their amps. Since then, Blue Coyote has been tearing up stages all over New York with an old-school rock sound revamped for the modern era. They have opened for the likes of Pat Travers, Blackfoot and The Outlaws at the Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, as well as headlined the First Annual Kingston Mardi Gras Celebration and the Rosendale Street Festival. They are frequent headliners at The Basement, Snappers and Keegan Ales of Kingston NY, as well as Brooklyn's Trash Bar. Their songs are about what they know: hitting the highway on a Harley, love gone wrong, destroying household appliances, and blowing the doors off a packed club full of screaming fans.

With 2011's THROWN TO THE SKULL AND BONES, this power trio's musical prowess and artistry have reached new heights. Ferocious riffs, breakneck solos and mighty grooves saturate this unholy marriage of hard-rock bravado and naked exposure of society in decay. From the rousing opener "Death Car" to the dexterous "Dirty, Mean and Nasty," from straight-up rockers "Low Hustle" and "Bad For Once" to emotional epics "Wildfire" and "Zero Hour," this album spans a broad range of styles, influences and themes.
