AXMINSTER'S new EP Bada Boom! skips over the details and gets right to the point.
This Boston-bred band cranks out rock hard, in-your-face songs cut from the same 70’s vinyl grooves that slammed on the jukeboxes they fed loose change into when they were just kids.
Shaking the medallions of bands like Aerosmith, Montrose, Sweet, and Deep Purple, “Bada Boom!” punches out songs with a dagger-between-the-teeth, tongue-in-cheek backbone.
AXMINSTER lit their fuse into the Boston music scene back in the early 80's, getting consistent airplay on major over the air radio and raves from the press. The band had a voracious appetite for live gigs, and slugged its way around the region's club scene, sharing sweat-filled stages with the likes of Metallica, Extreme, Twisted Sister, Lita Ford, Molly Hatchet, Ten Years After, Foghat and many others.
The New EP was mixed by Grammy Award Winning Producer/Engineer Bob St. John who has worked with such artists as Extreme, Collective Soul, Duran Duran and Dokken to name a few. “Bada Boom!” was mastered by Adam Matza at Magic Ears Mastering who has mastered tracks for Steven Tyler, Nuno Bettencourt, Dweezil Zappa, Mary J. Blige and others. The basic tracks were recorded at Genesys Recording Studio by Veteran Engineer Andre Kolarevic.
Following up 2022’s EP Tightrope, with a bit of swagger and lot of fun, "Bada Boom!", is honest rock n' roll, packed with a windows-down & volume-up allegiance to a time when rock n’ roll wasn’t perfect, sex was safe and motorcycles were dangerous.
