Another Band Of Mat Bethancourt: CHERRY CHOKE

After Josiah, The Beginning and Kings Of Frog Island, Mat Bethancourt is back with Cherry Choke. With this band returns Mat back to the sixties.
Cherry Choke released recently their debute album. These are two 7" singles from 2008.  (Released 99 copies each) 

CHERRY CHOKE Rumored to be named after a victorian prostitute with a very unique talent Cherry Choke play hard rockin’, ultra heavy, Blue Cheer/Hendrix inspired, psychedelic rock. Their signature sound of molten guitars hyped up on cheap and noisy effect pedals, heavy Gibson bass and sonic drum attack offers an acidic orgy for the mind and body... add a singer who rasps with a garage band's untutored authority and you have got yourself one hell of a group... Cherry Choke
March 2009 saw the release of their debut album via Elektrohasch Records with two limited edition 7” singles (only 99 copies of each) on Blackhand Records already released back in 2008. A mid atlantic blend of bubble-gum garage punk and mystical psychedelic acid rock n soul abandon this power trio are armed with a white hot live set and razor sharp tracks. Cherry Choke will blow your dirty little minds...

Peter, try Winzip. I don't understand why it doesn't work.

both zips dont work!

Insane Riez said...

I tried both links. They are working fine. (Even the extracting of the files)

Seriously, the shit dosent work, this is what winrar gives me, im on Windows:

! C:\downloads\Cherry Choke - Evil Deceiver 7''.zip: Cannot create folder Cherry Choke - Evil Deceiver 7''\Evil Deveiver 7"
Die Syntax für den Dateinamen, Verzeichnisnamen oder die Datenträgerbezeichnung ist falsch.

maybe it's the " in the subfolder's name(Evil Deceiver 7"), which Windows won't do. dunno.

and the other 7", does not have a file ending, i dont know whether it is zip or rar, but both dont work anyways, same error as above.

by the way, does this band have an album out by now?

Maybe you should try winzip instead of winrar. But to please you here are some new zip files:



And yes, Cherry Choke has released a full length album called Cherry Choke!

Thanks for the reuploads, but the same error occured. I came to the idea to unzip it online and it worked fine at http://wobzip.org/

thanks for the tunes, sounds great. need to check out their album!

I'm glad you finally succeeded. Still it is a question for me why it didn't work in the first place.

I will post the Cherry Choke album soon!
