Bedroom Rehab Corporation's got a recipe for success
If John Wetton loaned his "Starless and Bible Black"-era bass tone to Adam Wujtewicz, who in turn placed it carefully in a guacamole bowl and pureed it with Geezer Butler's brain, you'd have the principal sound and fury of the New London duo Bedroom Rehab Corporation.
Underpin this recipe with the lean but molten, always-in-the-pocket drums of Meghan Killimade, then dry rub with some funny lyrical concepts reminiscent of Fear - "S.S. Hangover" being a particularly appropriate anthem. Finally, place Wujtewicz in front of a mic to roar in leonine fashion, and the whole thing distills into gleeful and sardonic, two-minute bursts of musical anarchy.
BRC is about to enter the studio, so a show Friday at the Backstage Rock Bar in Groton, along with support acts Red Blade and Fall From Below, is the time to catch them live for the time being.
