The Sardinian stoned-and-fuzzed-out garage punk group Loose Sutures is back with “Sado Sex for Dummies,” their third LP, slated for 26 May via Electric Valley Records.
This new album marks Loose Sutures’ first studio outing as a trio, and to make this raucous ride more intoxicating, the Italian three-piece invited a few special guests, including the heavy rock royalties Nick Oliveri and Alain Johannes.
The first single, ‘Highway Shooter,’ is now available on all digital and streaming media.
“There’s no way out, you’re gonna die and you know that! So just run as fast as you can and kill as much as you can. Based on a true story, ‘Highway Shooter’ is Loose Sutures’ first single from ‘Sado Sex for Dummies.’”
Assembled in 2019 by four roughnecks, Loose Sutures plays classic ’70s riffs with a pinch of modern punk attitude, conjuring a blend of stoner and garage energy and displaying an abundance of evil beats, venomous fuzzes, and raunchy lyrics.
Loose Sutures’ music has been praised by fans and critics for evoking a dark and seductive atmosphere reminiscent of cult exploitation movies.
Depicting killer profiles and kinky love stories, the Sardinian group presented their self-titled debut LP in March 2020 via Electric Valley Records. They followed it up with the sophomore album, “A Gash with Sharp Teeth and Other Tales,” the following year via Electric Valley Records; it later saw a Japanese edition in the Spring of 2022.
Introducing the newly recruited Giuseppe Hussain (who replaced Gianpaolo Cherchi, guitars/vocals), the album is “a journey delving into lust with filthy guitars, stoned rhythms, and creepy voices escorting you deep inside the sticky core of what you fear yet desire at the same time.”
Loose Sutures again encountered a lineup change in 2022 when Giuseppe Hussain left the band, leaving the band to operate as a trio. It was a setback, but they refused to let it hold them back. Longtime fellow Marco “Grey” Manca joined to take care of the role of Giuseppe on the “High Heeled Barbarians Tour” around Europe the same year.
“Sado Sex for Dummies,” as the name hints, is a complete handbook to satisfy the needs of the pervs, sadists, and killers out there. An invitation to indulge in fuzz-drenched, punk-‘n-roll violence, this third record from Loose Sutures has no shortage of lurid stories.
While there is a touch of evolution, the album has not strayed too far from the band’s established hard, fast, and crude sound. To add more spice to some songs, the album features a couple of guest musicians, including the legendary Nick Oliveri and Alain Johannes.
