Crushed Out is an explosive hit of surf-garage momentum and rock & roll from Brooklyn, NY consisting of Frank Hoier on guitar and vocals and Moselle Spiller on drums. After four national tours and a well-received EP, 2010′s Show Pony, the couple, formerly known as Boom Chick, have released Want to Give, on Nov.6, 2012 on their own Cool Clear Water imprint.
Want to Give is a pure guitar/drum adrenalin rush – plenty of fuzz, tremolo, riffs, chunky chords, slide and Black Sabbath power chords. The songs are tight and lean; no fat, no studio fairy dust.
Along with early features in NYC publications (Village Voice, New York Post), Crushed Out’s early supporters included So-Cal skate bible Thrasher Magazine and Element Skateboards, who used several of the band’s Show Pony EP songs in their skateboard videos. Their song “Ghost of Bo Diddley” (as Boom Chick) was also featured in ESPN’s X series, The Kids.
Want to Give explodes out of the speakers, delivering on the promise of Crushed Out’s EP and live shows. It’s a testament to Frank and Moselle’s ecstatic love for early American rock & roll, surf guitar and country blues — what Bob Dylan called the “atomic era” of rock & roll.
