Simon Stokes & The Black Whip Thrill Band - The Incredible Simon Stokes & The Black Whip Thrill Band (1973 us, superb hard/blues rock, vinyl rip) Flac 24-bit/192 lossless


I can happily say that the music almost lives up to it, as this is truly one of the best biker rock records ever made.  And this guy has to be one of the best hard rock vocalists ever—if you are looking for a quick way to blast paint off the walls, just crank and endless loop of one of Mr. Stokes’ howls. 

There are a couple dumb songs on here but, for the most part, this thing rocks with a solid seedy, cynical vibe to it.  My picks would be “The Devil Just Called My Name”, “Waltz For Jaded Lovers”, “Should Have Married Peggy Sue”, “The Wolfpack Rides The Night”, and “Hot Summer Night In The City”, but the whole LP is pretty solid for this sort of scummy hard rock. (glorifytheturd.com)

  3. Hard-rock singer/songwriter Simon Stokes was a loner as a kid. He was raised by his grandparents in Reading, Massachusetts and had trouble sleepwalking at age ten. His grandfather introduced Simon to music by taking him to see the Harry D. Stokes Orchestra on a regular basis. Stokes was also highly influenced by blues music; he avidly listened to local disc jockey Sid Symphony and saw such blues greats as Hank Ballard and Big Mama Thornton at live all-night concerts. Simon won the top prize in a local songwriting contest and subsequently moved to Los Angeles in his early 20's. In 1965 he started recording several singles under such alternate names as the Flower Children, Perpetual Motion Workshop, and Heathen Angels. Stokes worked as a staff writer at Elektra Records. He formed a band called the Nighthawks and signed up with Elektra the same day as the MC5. Simon recorded his debut album "Incredible Simon Stokes" for Spindizzy Records in 1973. His follow-up album "Simon Stokes & the Black Whip Thrill Band" was banned in the United States because of its offensive cover art which showed women being bound and tortured, whips, chains, pulleys, mysterious devices with cranks. The foreground shows a man (who looks like Simon Stokes) pulling on a rope attached to a hogtied woman suspended from some kind of transport system. A masked man is seen whipping the woman. She is covered in marks from the whip. In the background, men dressed as monks can be seen doing things to other captive or suspended women. It has the general appearance of a medieval torture dungeon (with some anachronistic details). Oddly, none of the women are naked. The woman in the foreground looks like she could have come straight out of a Buck Rogers serial. With his highly distinctive rough'n'raspy gravel voice, often harsh lyrics, and raw, gritty, trashy hard-rocking bluesy sound, Stokes soon amassed a sizable underground cult following (he's especially popular with bikers). He co-composed the score for the boxing documentary "The Fighters." Simon's songs are featured on the soundtracks to the movies "Outlaw Riders," "Vice Squad" (Stokes penned the lyrics for the amazing theme song "Neon Slime"), "Wanted: Dead or Alive," "Poltergeist III," "The Hard Way," "A Kiss Before Dying," "Bad Channels," and "Slaughter of the Innocents." Stokes took a regrettably lengthy nearly two decade hiatus from recording after releasing the album "Buzzard of Love" in 1977. In 1996 Simon reemerged and collaborated with legendary 60's hippie guru Timothy Leary on his album "Right to Fly." More recently Simon Stokes recorded the country-rock album "Honky" in 2002 and the bluesy "Head" in 2007.

  4. Now to the album itself "Simon Stokes & the Black Whip Thrill Band"
    The first track, The Black Whip Thrill Band' specifies where the march towards SIMON STOKES goes. Rough blues with country and rock and roll influences. Is supported by the voice of the whole SIMON STOKES, who has a very dirty organ, what to sing his part a little whiny character, he comes across very rough in combination. While'The Devil Just Call My Name 'is a purebred and very sad country song, you know at'Angel Ride On' immediately where you are it. Blue Laced, provided with typical biker Lyrics Rock'n Roll with very horny piano in the background. Also next track is playing homage to the bikers, with simple but hard blues, provided with a catchy Leitriff.'The Wolfpack Rides Out Tonight'. 'The Boa Constrictor Ate My Wife Night' load is a pure, lined with Barpiano Funsong (They even believe the fun of hearing, the musicians had when recording) of the basic mood most likely with'Nelly The Elephant' of the TOY DOLLS compare. Was definitely a live bomb. The B-side starts a little quieter, but by no means smooth with the rough blues'Good Times They Come', back packs ideal for the text matching Tearful in the vote at the SIMON STOKES. 'Waltz For Jaded lovers' is a traditional blues. Only piano, drums, bass and vocals. Relaxed beautiful. The highlight of the disc is for me personally submit the following'Should Have Married Peggy Sue'. Stylistically einzuorden (I would count the number already 70 Heavy Rock). draw here SIMON STOKES and his band all the stops. Especially the sound of the lead guitar is amazing and beautiful. 'She's Got The Voodoo' is a great tribute to one of the best bands of all time CLEARWATER REVIVAL -CREEDENCE, particularly as regards the Instrumental Group. `Hot Summer's Night In The City 'claws back to the heavy rock. Here are also the very slight radio equipment. The last track of the album called'Ballad Of Lennie And George' is again more Country, quiet, but very far from the kitsch. Also contribute to the joplin guest vocals. Here are also the very slight radio bonds. The last track of the album called'Ballad Of Lennie And George' is again more Country, quiet, but very far from the kitsch. Also contribute to the joplinartigen guest vocals.
    A BUY recommendation can I say merely because of that one rarely gets such a combination of oblique lyrics, gritty sound and this stark cover artwork. There are no official CD release, a bootleg is not known to me. For a well-preserved one LP Spindizzy Records ‎– KZ 32075 (would have to 40, - € lie down.)
