SUZI QUATRO To Release New Album “No Control” March 29th via SPV/Steamhammer

 

suz
Even in the highly adrenaline-fuelled music business, it’s rare to find a bundle of energy on a par with Suzi Quatro. The American rock vocalist has successfully worked as a musician for more than fifty years, delivering with unbridled energy her greatest hits such as ‘Can The Can’, ‘48 Crash’, ‘Devil Gate Drive’, ‘If You Can`t Give Me Love’, ‘She`s In Love With You’ or ‘Stumblin In‘ which made her an icon in the 1970s, and wowing her fans again and again with her new material. So it comes as no surprise that she’s not thinking of retiring. “I’ll retire when I go onstage, shake my ass, and there is silence,” she says, fully aware of the fact that that moment is still a long way off.

 

Suzi Quatro presents eleven new songs (plus two bonus tracks) on No Control. The majority of the material consists of collaborations with her son from her first marriage, Richard Tuckey. Suzi explains: “This was our first attempt at writing and recording something together. The creative progress began with ‘Don’t Do Me Wrong’. And, through this unusually beautiful English summer of 2018, we sat outside, acoustic bass, acoustic guitar, iPad recording app, and lots of paper, throwing ideas back and forth.” With amazing results, as the new album proves – to Suzi herself not only on a musical but also on a personal level.

 

For example on ‘No Soul/No Control’, the first single to be released which features the message “Don`t let go of yourself for anyone”. Suzi: “This is my personal mantra. All you have in this world is you.” Remembering the conception of the number, she says: “We were busy as hell, buried in the songs. Richard had a new idea and showed me. It was very unusual and I liked it. A very basic guitar and drum track was put down for me to work on the melody and lyric. I went into the living area of the studio and about 15 minutes later, it was done. It flew out of its own accord, as the best songs do.”

 

The same applies to numbers such as ‘Macho Man’ (Suzi: “It’s a no-brainer that this is an opening live song. You cannot help headbanging to it, it just grabs you”), ‘I Can Teach You To Fly’ (“a definite throwback to the sixties”), ‘Easy Pickings’ (“I’ve been playing this riff on acoustic guitar forever, at least the last ten years. Then all of a sudden, it became a song”) and ‘Love Isn’t Fair’ (“Got this idea sitting in our Hamburg home. I wanted to create a Blondie-meets-Mavericks song, and I think I accomplished that”).

 

The perhaps most unusual track on the album is called ‘Strings’ and has developed into a true little masterpiece during the studio recordings. Suzi: “This is all about the strings that tie our lives together. Great riff. I drove everyone mad singing nonstop in this weird voice ‘Strings’. I couldn’t get it out of my head, and – hallelujah – it came out in the recording exactly as I’d imagined.”

 

You can tell how proud Suzi Quatro is of No Control. Pride and delight at a career which has lasted for five decades and has maintained the creativity of the American rock icon to the present day. Says Quatro: “I’ve never stopped releasing through the years. Back To The Drive in 2006, In The Spotlight in 2011, Quatro, Scott & Powell in 2016. These albums were thought about and planned out in great detail. I am proud of all three releases, very proud. But my new album No Control is its own animal.”

 

The new album “No Control” will be released through SPV/Steamhammer on March 29th 2019 as CD DigiPak, 2LP Gatefold, download and stream.

ATTENTION, SPUDS: SMOOTH NOODLE MAPS Deluxe Reissue PRE-ORDER!

DEVO ’Smooth Noodle Maps’ Deluxe 2LP/2CD Sets

devosmooth

Long out of print and never reissued, this year FUTURISMO invite you to snake through the chaos with a Deluxe limited edition of DEVO’s 1990 album – Smooth Noodle Maps!

 

 

An underrated gem, Smooth Noodle Maps might oddly be the most anticipated of all DEVO’s reissues. It’s title being a direct reference to the brain was perhaps an irony to fans left underwhelmed at the time, yet over the years this album has become warmly regarded as a hardcore fan favourite. Whether you’re a true believer or have just come to your senses, Smooth Noodle Maps will show you the way!

 

 

Inspired by the concept of chaos theory, a theme inherent in de-evolution itself, Smooth Noodle Maps paralleled DEVO’s own dissolution of order, yet the albums tight conceptual elements (the art featured animations of chaos motion developed by a real lab) and arthouse pop make this a record hard not to love.

 

 

Though it may have foreshadowed a hiatus for DEVO, Smooth Noodle Maps is a joyous enigma, a record demonstrating a stronghold of captivating tunes such as ‘Stuck In A Loop’ and “A Change Is Gonna Cum’, undoubtably hits in another time and space, whilst simultaneously playing off the arch humour and observation found on ’Jimmy’ and ‘Post Post-Modern Man’, all dusted with an intelligence expected of the great D-E-V-O!

 

 

This year, FUTURISMO give every truly discerning DEVO fan the out of print release they’ve been been craving, the follow up to last years Total Devo Deluxe – a limited pressing of Smooth Noodle Maps Deluxe. Each gatefold LP set includes 2x180g limited edition coloured vinyl in the choice of ‘Brain Drain’, ‘Postmodern Chaos’ or ‘Donut Glaze’ as well as a 2xCD gatefold digipak version. Included alongside the original album are remixes, demos and unheard tracks unearthed from the archives. The records come in a die-cut gatefold sleeve that enables an interchangeable cover, contains a huge double sided poster with new liner notes by Gerald V. Casale, the LP version also contains a sheet of cut-out finger spinners.

 

 

Attention super fans! Ultra-limited bundles come with a squishy Smooth Noodle Brain!

devobrain

DEVO’s Smooth Noodle Maps Deluxe is an essential addition to the collection of any spud stuck in a loop. This March it’s time to get smooth…only while stocks last!
