Always hard-working, never stopping, totally on fire, Molten-Metal Vegas teen rockers, Control the Chaos are blazing up with late spring and summer show dates!!
“We are extremely busy with live performances, getting ready for the official launch of our FULL first album and being back in the studio again, working on even more music. On top of that, we’ve got video production work to address as well and several out of state trips coming up. It’s absolutely crazy,” states Ed Fassio, CTC band manager.
Since September of 2008, Control the Chaos has been making significant headway on the local Vegas and west coast music scene. With a travel schedule that includes LA, Salt Lake, Portland and Seattle, the band’s popularity continues to grow nation-wide, and with the addition of a lead vocalist in March of this year, the band’s musical progression is just as equal.
“There is an intensity that’s building. It’s pretty awesome and we’re having a ton of fun,” says Brandon Rojas, CTC’s vocalist.
“It’s an every day, every minute thing with this band. We literally, eat, breathe, shit and rock. That’s what we do,” added Hector Gomez, drummer for the band.
Control the Chaos upcoming schedule includes many ALL AGES and FREE performances, including shows at Vegas’ Premier All Ages venue – “The Farm” and Hollywood’s world-famous “Whisky a Go-Go”. Late April, the band performs in front of guitar legend, Zakk Wylde from Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne. The show is a competition of bands paying tribute to Sabbath and Ozzy tunes and will be held on the legendary “Fremont Street” in Las Vegas on April 30th at the El Premier Rock Club.

In 1989 Tim Karr released his excellent debut album “Rubbin’ Me The Right Way” and for all intents and purposes disappeared until 2005 when he hooked up with Gilby Clarke and reappeared with Triggerdaddy’s “Stereosonic Meltdown”. One could call Triggerdaddy a supergroup, at the very least a Sunset Strip Supergroup as it is rounded out with Gilby Clarke pulling double duty as producer and guitarist, Eric Singer on drums, and including the talents of such performers as Johnny Griparic (Slash’s Snakepit), Muddy Stardust (L.A. Guns, Starfuckers, Gilby Clarke Band), Brian Tichy (Billy Idol), Teddy Zig Zag (Guns n’ Roses), Ryan Roxie (Glamnation, Slash’s Snakepit, Alice Cooper), Chad Stewart (Faster Pussycat), and Jon E. Love (Love/Hate).
The music on “Stereosonic Meltdown” is heavily influenced by such 70′s artists as T Rex, David Bowie, and Alice Cooper. As a matter of fact the first time I heard ”Gimme Sum Skin”, “Enemy”, “Shape of Things 2 Come”, and “Can’t Get High” I had to go back and look to see if Alice himself didn’t help out on the vocals. On “Jesus Cowboy” and “Price of Love” both have a strong Bowie influence and “Jesus Cowboy” is definitely one of the standout tracks on this album. Another standout is “Peach” which would be hard for one to guess is a cover of Prince, there is another cover of Marc Bolan’s 20th Century Boy but this song has been covered so many times it is hard for me to get excited about another cover version of it.
I know it has been 4 years since this album was released, but I am hoping there will be a followup because I am definitely looking forward to hearing more music from Tim Karr and/or Triggerdaddy. All in all “Stereosonic Meltdown” is a damn good album for something I found by complete accident while browsing through CDBaby.com.
