Swedish psych-drone heavyweights are the next in the Fuzz Club Session series…

Conjuring heavy drones and sinister garage-psych freak-outs, Stockholm outfit The Janitors have been a formidable presence on the European underground since they formed way back in 2004. Channelling the free-wheeling spirit of Hawkwind with equal smatterings of Sabbath and Spacemen 3, the band are masters of taking hold of a gnarly fuzzed-out groove and beating it within an inch of its life. Probably not for the faint of heart, their druggy wig-outs are totally relentless and unforgiving.

For the uninitiated, perhaps we should turn to the late Hunter S. Thompson who famously wrote: “Buy the ticket, take the ride… and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well… maybe chalk it up to forced consciousness expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.” Those words serve as a perfectly apt instruction manual – or warning, perhaps – for entering The Janitors nightmarish world and the ticket, in this instance, happens to be the band’s forthcoming Fuzz Club Session LP.

Officially due for release January 18th, the session sees The Janitors pummeling noise sounding better than ever and now the secret’s out, you can get a taste of what’s to come with the first video for ‘Here They Come’, originially released on their 2014 EP Evil Doings Of An Evil Kind. The video sees the Janitors do what they do best: dealing in crushing psychedelic drones with a subtle Eastern influence to create something that’s both hypnotic and heavy as f*ck. You can watch the video and pre-order the LP below…
