Keith Cook has released Rock & Roll Riot via Riot Records.
Cook was the guitarist for protopunk band Debris, with whom he was included in a history exhibit covering the notable rock and rollers from their home state of Oklahoma.
Recorded in producer Steve Fisk’s garage home studio, Cook’s Rock & Roll Riot is garage rock in the purist sense of the term. With vintage tube amps, Fisk’s use of classic recording techniques and minimal microphones on tracks, Cook and Fisk capture the raw sound of the riff-based songs that hark back to the simplistic live vibe of early rock recordings.
Cook’s sophomore record is backed by Dave Foster, Aaron Burckhard & Kera Schaley of Nirvana, Steve MacKay of The Stooges, Criss Crass of The Muffs, The Vains, Wayne/Jayne County, Travis McNabb of Greg Sage and The Wipers, Kirk Heydt of Flipper Pop O Pies and Steve Fisk.
