Space Probe Taurus to release new album Mondo Satan this April viaRipple Music | Listen and stream ‘The Iguana’ now
This April, acclaimed hard-hitting acid rockers Space Probe Taurus congregate with fellow psych worshippers Ripple Music to release their latest foray into the world of biker-flicks, lysergic rock ‘n’ roll and feral fuzz.
Originally formed as Snake Machine in 1992 it wasn’t until a name change and shortening of their songs in ’97 that the band settled into doing what they do best; preaching the gospel of dirty garage rock. Swedish style.
Often compared to the likes of Mudhoney, The Stooges, MC5 and Blue Cheer – the latter of whom SPT paid tribute to with a ripping cut of ‘Second Time Around’ on Black Widow Records’ Blue Explosion – their music is influenced by late ’60s psych rock and low-budget B-movies like Psychomania and Angels From Hell. A dual obsession that quickly led on to the band contributing music to the 2005 “snuff documentary” Actress Apocalypse and revenge thriller I Am Vengeance in 2012.
Ripple Music is a California based independent record label founded in 2010 by Todd Severin and John Rancik. The company encompasses a record label, a music publishing business, a marketing, promotion and sales team, and a Distribution for heavy independent bands (Heavy Ripples Distro).
