Spencer Robinson and The Wolf Spiders’ first single off of their upcoming LP, Beneath The Surface.

by Daniel Barron



Limber up, punk, ’cause this song has whiskey-flamed breath and it’s ready to tussle. “Drink Gasoline, Spit Fire” is a hard rock jam recounting an evening of booze-fueled brawling and comes off of Spencer Robinson and The Wolf Spiders’ upcoming LP, Beneath The Surface, which arrives in November from Rusty Knuckles Records. Sepulchral-toned Robinson made his musical debut (sans The Wolf Spiders addendum)¬† last year with the EP release Standing at the End of the World, a scuzzy gem whose sonic shades recalled Nick Caves and The Bad Seeds and Tom Waits.


From the band’s bio:

Spencer Robinson spent years playing in the legendary Los Angeles garage band The Lords of Altamont, playing with incredible bands like The Who, X, and The Cramps, just to name a few. Their incredible live shows left audiences in ruins.

His new band, The Wolf Spiders, includes founding member of The Lords of Altamont Johnny DeVilla, Tom Hernandez from The Superbees, and Piper Ingram from The Honeymoon Screams and Kissy Suzuki. This is something a little darker, a little grittier; music for drinking, crying, driving, and dying.


Ready to knuckle up? If you enjoy what you hear, Spencer Robinson and The Wolf Spiders will be supporting The LA Kitchen along with PLEXXAGLASS, YUME, and bedbugs on Wednesday, October 25th at the Hi Hat, presented by Defend LA and Beating Lights. Get your tickets here.
