Sidecar Bandits release LP record 'Get on the Bus'


The Los Angeles rock crew known as Sidecar Bandits (feat. Sam the Armenian Comedian) have released their new LP record album, titled, “Get on the Bus.” The album is comprised of 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been released on the New Volume Music record label. A pared-down, straightforward debut with raw, classic rock grooves and a punk-rock tonality, “Get on the Bus” showcases Sidecar Bandits as a tongue-in-cheek group with a performance-art mentality and tons of creative soul.

Not unlike old-school alternative favorites, the Frogs, Sidecar Bandits are largely based on a vocal performance that would have made Andy Warhol proud. These vocals are performed at a high level of intensity by Sam the Armenian Comedian, who gained fame as an interviewee and regular telephone guest on the World Famous KROQ's flagship “Kevin and Bean Show.” Their combination of guitar, drums, Sam the A.C. and various other unlikely instruments produces a sound and style that is not only wildly engrossing, but also surprisingly intellectual in a Stooges-meets-Velvet-Underground way, their themes often inculcating social awareness on a variety of topics.

Sidecar Bandits is an alternative rock n' roll band led by Joe Kane, a singer songwriter who plays guitar, bass, and keyboards. The band includes Randy Collins on drums and Sam the Armenian Comedian on vocals. Their first LP, “Who R U,” was influenced by the guitar-driven sound of the White Stripes and Alice Cooper. Their lyrics speak about the social norms of a changing world dependent upon technology and self-gratification. Both “Who R U” and “Get on the Bus” have been drawing attention from both local and college radio. The three piece band have created a passionate sound of social awareness and raw humor.

“Get on the Bus” by Sidecar Bandits is available online worldwide.
