Laundronauts Come Clean
THE LAUNDRONAUTS - "THE LAUNDRONAUTS COME CLEAN" Spincycle Records presents this debut album by The Laundronauts, recorded and produced in Detroit by legendary rock producer Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Romantics, Love Me Nots, Von Bondies, Dirtbombs). Jim Diamond's analog studio, Ghetto Recorders, has attracted artists from all over the globe who are looking for "that" sound. And The Laundronauts have made full use of "that" sound on "this" album! Barely two bars into Stephen J's searing guitar on the first track, "Stain," and already you know you are in good hands! Then come thirteen tracks of blistering garage fuzz, ultra-catchy mod-pop, and wylde beats! The Laundronauts want to entertain you - with their infectious music, their clever lyrics, their energetic live show, their matching white modsuits, AND WITH THIS 13-SONG ALBUM! WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING . . . 'A giant washing machine of kickassery whomping and rattling around the stage, and one wouldn't hesitate to witness their fury live!' - Douglas Mackenzie, Discorder Magazine 'Only a dead fish could resist their rambunctious brand of garage punk and mod-infused rock 'n' roll!' - Mike Devlin, Canwest Global 'The Laundronauts are not only fun to watch, they also rock the party with dancey beats and witty lyrics that make you giggle!' - Bettina May, An Occasional Man Magazine 'The Laundronauts are my fave new band . . . so much fun!' - Jeremy Baker, The Zone 91.3 FM 'Brims with a Sonics-style energy!' - Bryce Dunn, CITR 101.9 FM 'An awesome sound!' - Earl Clifton, Earl Clifton Radio WHAT THE FANS ARE SAYING . . . 'You guys really F**KING rocked Victoria last night!!! Had your vinyl spinning most of the day and look forward to seeing you guys live again!!!' - Jason Schultz 'The record is mind-blowing and the sound is incredible. Thanks again, guys!!' - Scott Polachuk 'Thanks for last night, Laundronauts - U RAWK!!!' - Angela Hagensen 'I heard your stuff and I've decided: you are AMAZING! I always had a fondness for The Pretenders ode to Laundry, Watchin' The Clothes, but you guys put that song to SHAME!' - Ruth Galko WHAT THE BANDS ARE SAYING . . . 'I thought I'd heard them all . . . until I found the BEST! Or, at very least, my current favorite, The Laundronauts! How on Earth could a band whose entire oeuvre apparently consists of clothes-washing metaphors be so COG-damned entertaining?!' - Dr. Pinkerton, Consortium Of Genius (COG), New Orleans, LA 'You guys are so impressive!' - Nicole Laurenne, The Love Me Nots, Phoenix, AZ A 2010 REVIEW FROM DISCORDER MAGAZINE: 'Imagine, if you will, standing on a black background, three men in spotless white suits, eyes round and black in white-rimmed sunglasses, faces forbiddingly expressionless like those of soldiers or gangsters. These are the Laundronauts. The music is garage-rock, full of fuzzy guitars, '50s style backup vocals and dirty bass. It is raucous but focused, especially on those instrumental surf-rock tracks that showcases the band's musical presence, making sure you know they can rock out even without their chosen lyrical theme, which is laundry. Yup, laundry. Their songs are about the lonely spin cycle of love, the charms of lovely Launder-Annette and trying to keep clean in such a dirty world. With some bands of this ilk, things get gimmicky, but listening to the album, it's easy to just enjoy the rock 'n' roll and have the occasional chuckle at the lyrics. Really, they're like a giant washing machine of kickassery whomping and rattling around the stage, and one wouldn't hesitate to witness their fury live!' - Douglas Mackenzie.
