KEITH COOK
Rock & Roll Riot
Riot Records
Release: 29 October 2021

KEITH COOK releases new album ‘Rock & Roll Riot’, out now on Riot Records.

Keith Cook was the guitarist for protopunk band Debris, with whom he was included in a history exhibit covering the notable rock and rollers from their home state of Oklahoma.
 
Cook has released 3 singles in the lead up to ROCK & ROLL RIOT’s release: ‘Cease’, bemoaning the gentrification of Seattle in a broad yet incisive enough shot that you could apply it to any place, the tongue in cheek three chord rock song ‘Child’s Play’ and barnstorming ‘Never Equate’.
 

All three singles feature on Cook’s upcoming album Rock & Roll Riot, which has been released digitally, on CD and Vinyl through Riot Records today.
 
 Recorded in producer Steve Fisk’s garage home studio, Keith Cook’s Rock & Roll Riot is garage rock in the purist sense of the term. With vintage tube amps, Fisk’s use of classic recording techniques and minimal microphones on tracks, Cook and Fisk capture the raw sound of the riff-based songs that hark back to the simplistic live vibe of early rock recordings.
 
Cook’s sophomore record is backed by Dave Foster, Aaron Burckhard & Kera Schaley of Nirvana, Steve MacKay of The Stooges, Criss Crass of The Muffs, The Vains, Wayne/Jayne County, Travis McNabb of Greg Sage and The Wipers, Kirk Heydt of Flipper Pop O Pies and Steve Fisk.
