It's rare to see people really get down at a rock show anymore, but Los Angeles' The Creation Factory is intent on changing that. The ferociously fuzzed-out garage band, channels the sounds of the 1960s, with psychedelic beats and freakout instrumentals.
The five piece have debuted their 45" single Let Me Go / You Got It, which is a two-sided vinyl that captures the groovy sort of sounds that people don’t hear anymore. The group uses authentic 1960s gear, and an era-appropriate look, to create blues-infused rock designed to get a crowd's feet moving.
The Creation Factory was formed in 2014 when Shane Stotsenberg, of the Mystic Braves, pieced together a style-infused gang of psychedelic bandits, including band members Iggy Gonzalez (also of the Mystic Braves) on drums, Neil Soiland and Gabriel Pacheco on guitar and Peter Maffei (of The Electric Magpie) on keyboards. Stotsenberg himself provides bass and lead vocals.
While the musical appeal of The Creation Factory's hard to ignore, Stotsenberg insists the band's also out to show fans what they've been missing. “I’m trying to revive music and expose it to a younger generation," he says. "I'm going backwards to go forward."
While the past is firmly on The Creation Factory’s side, it’s the future that truly belongs to the band.
