Monster Magnet - Watch Me Fade

Dave Wyndorf and his MONSTER MAGNET henchmen did completely rearranged "Last Patrol" in 2014 and named it as simple as "Milking The Stars: A Re-Imagining Of Last Patrol". The "reimagined" album version was not strictly a remix of Last Patrol, but the songs feature new recordings and arrangements and gave it a weird 1960s vibe.

Now MONSTER MAGNET go back even further to 2010 and their "Mastermind" album. Even if you know the LP inside and out, I'm sure that you and me won't be prepared in the slightest for what "Cobras And Fire (The Mastermind Redux)" will give us but I am almost sure it will be some familiar elements that drifts by and are swallowed whole by thundering psych orgies.

"Cobras And Fire (The Mastermind Redux)" will be released in different versions of course. There will be two really Strictly Limited "Napalm Records Mailorder Edition", One that is limited to 200 Gatefold 2-LP Copies in RED 180g Vinyl + Exclusive MONSTER MAGNET Slipmat. The second is a 300 Gatefold 2-LP Copies in WHITE/BLACK SPLATTER 180g Vinyl. And yes there will be a standard BLACK version!

MONSTER MAGNET is an American stoner rock band. Hailing from Red Bank, New Jersey, the group was founded by Dave Wyndorf (vocals and guitar), John McBain (guitar) and Tim Cronin (vocals and drums). The band first went by the names "Dog of Mystery", "Airport 75", "Triple Bad Acid" and "King Fuzz" before finally settling on "MONSTER MAGNET", taken from the name of a 1960s toy made by Wham-O, which Wyndorf liked when he was a child.

Today's tune "Watch Me Fade" is taken from "Mastermind" (Delux version) and the upcoming "Cobras And Fire (The Mastermind Redux)". The tune features one of my favorite musical combinations: heavy, old school organ and fuzz guitar. When I hear that sound I want to sing like some mad preacher. The lyrics started out as a love song but wound up being a paranoid rant about living in the 21st century. I'm sure somebody out there can relate. And ... it's only 3 minutes and 6 seconds which has to be some kind of record for MONSTER MAGNET. Rock on,” says Wyndorf of the track.
