Sweet Chariot
Sweet Chariot
Sweet Chariot is a San Francisco and Oakland based band with members who prefer old gear and cold beer. Their timeless rock ‘n’ roll is a blend of pickled pub rock and greasy biker boogie trimmed in the smoky tones of West Coast canyon-twang.
Sweet Chariot comprises singer/guitarist Eric Shea (Hot Lunch, Mover) and Planes Of Satori drummer Chris Labreche – both dudes from the bygone band Parchman Farm. They also landed bass player Doran Shelley, a former member of The Cramps and Nik Turner’s Hawkwind. Ride The Blinds’ frontman Chris Guthridge completes the band with shared singing duties and top-shelf lead guitar playing.

Michael James Tapscott is one half of internationally acclaimed fringe folk darlings, ODAWAS, and the lead singer-songwriter of the Bay Area country-folk group, CHINA THE BAND, but also an entire universe unto himself.

Taking psychotropic paths through forgotten exotic literature, extrapolating mysticism from the shag-toothed street peddlers, his is a world of wonder that seethes just below the surface of yer perspective skull jellies. Stitched together from an electric eclectic sonic palette where synthesizers sigh next to the jingle-jangle buzz of 12 steel strings and the plitter-patter purr of cybernetic drum circles.

And here is Michael, eyes wild and green, with his hand outstretched, some secret curling across his lips as they part, and he asks, "Would you to take a journey, old friend?" Assuming you didn't throw up, then hope that's OK. Be excited about where we can go together, regardless of where we might be.
