Out here in the perimeter there are no stars, no beginning, no end, only Earthless. Easily confused, in name only, with Seattle drone trio Earth who are entirely absent of climax or variation, the San Diego instrumental power rock trio Earthless is all climax, a sonic explosion from start to finish of guitar riffs & improvisation. What I witnessed at Psycho California Fest at the Observatory in Santa Ana was an intense, unrestrained performance lead by frontman Isaiah Mitchell who basically masturbated for close to an hour stroking his 50’s soft “V” stratocaster ejaculating solo after solo, while drummer Mario Rubalcaba (OFF!, Rocket From the Crypt) and bassist Mike Eginton basically provided the lubrication. No foreplay here just an all out sonic bombardment of Hendrix infused guitar porn that was all money shot. Check out their latest release From the Ages (2013 Tee Pee Records).
