Blitzen Trapper - London

Multi-talented cult legends BLITZEN TRAPPER have added a genre to their mixed bag of tricks: musical theatre. The band produced the stage musical WILD & RECKLESS in Portland in 2017. While the theatrical production itself has not been staged outside of Oregon, the band is currently touring Europe with the album of the same title. They tore apart the East London on April 12 with their unique fusion of alt country and art rock, giving the small Hoxton venue a sold out, explosive performance.

The story of the rock opera they produced last year may not have been part of the show, but the imagery of lost hope and the American highway transported the audience right into the backseat of a tortured soul wandering through the Western United States. Fittingly, the new tracks REBEL and WILD & RECKLESS are fantastic motorway anthems.

There was plenty of older material in the setlist, with the audience providing a word perfect a sing-a-long to BLACK RIVER KILLER from 2008’s now classic FURR.

The show was not without it’s snafus, including a broken guitar string and Erik Menteer having problems with his keyboard. But with their laid back PNW humour, the band gave the epic rock show performance the comfort of a backyard hangout.

The band will continue to play Europe for one more month before heading back to the US. WILD & RECKLESS is out now in Europe on British indie label Lojinx. Out on heavyweight vinyl LP, CD & digital.
