JC Autobody is an autocult enthusiast and Rust Belt native from Indiana whose sixth release, “Turbo,” will hit the streets on October 31st, 2018. The 10-song album will be released on limited edition vinyl and will appeal to fans at the intersection of shock rock, glam rock, heavy rock and gentle doom.
Songs like the title track Turbo will conjure up the emaciated ghost of Marc Bolan, while others like Dark Passenger and Horsepower bring to mind sounds akin to Sabbath’s “Master of Reality” and The Osmond’s early 70s Crazy Horses swan dive into heavy metal. Still, others like Analog Scum serve to rattle listeners with the unsettling sounds of a face-melt scene taken straight from the world of VHS trash cinema.
The album ends with a late night rager at Bigg’s Arcade, a fictitious Asteroids-n-pinball rat’s nest in blighted East Central Indiana, with pounding New York Doll’s-style piano to finish out a night of hedonistic Hoosier gloom known only to those of us from the Rust Belt.
Recorded in a garage and mix and mastered by the area’s top-rated mechanics, JC Autobody’s “Turbo” will sleep on your couch, drink all your dad’s beer and take you on a thrill ride through a heavy metal parking lot that you’ll never want to end.
