Before Black Pistol Fire even began performing, drummer Eric Owen stripped himself down to his skivvies, preparing himself for a loaded live session. And, yes, he is donning golf gloves. Coupled with the high energy guitarist and life-long friend Kevin McKeown supplied, the incredible duo flooded the KEXP studio with a sound so explosive it left DJ Cheryl Waters stunned. Black Pistol Fire’s sweaty Southern garage rock is capable of incorporating both bluesy tracks and jam-band jangles, and they vacillate well between wild guitar solos and drastic shifts in time-signatures. Having spent most of their time moving between Canada and Texas, the duo has just re-located to Austin for the time being and are celebrating the release of their second album, Hush or Howl, by touring with Wolfmother. Beware their caliber and up your arsenal by watching this explosive live performance:
