Sun God Replica play 2 sets from 9.30pm
Like the Sun Gods of old but remade in plastic
‘Sun God Replica formed when Link McLennan (singer, songwriter and guitarist for the Bakelite Age / Meanies) and Lochie Cavigan (Bakelite Age) decided to take the best elements from 60’s/70’s heavy rock'n'roll and fuse them into a heavy garage psych band.
They opted for a three-piece line-up deciding that it was a nasty and pointy shape. Besides, Cream were a three-piece. They then recruited former Monochromes member Tim Pickering (aka Lance Swagger) on bass. In 2011, they recorded their debut 12" LP Primitive Clockwork at an old morgue specially converted into a studio for the album by former Monochromes frontman JJ Symon. The record received much critical praise but the Sun God Replica boys knew they couldn’t rest on their artistic laurels. Not if they wanted to create a Sun God sonic pandemic. Along with engineer Loki Lockwood the produced The Devil and the Deep, a nugget of rockin’ n riffin’ gold.’
