Los Angeles psych-rockers Hearty Har—led by brothers Tyler & Shane Fogerty and Will Van Santen—released their latest track “Radio Man ‘56” on September 15th.
“Radio Man ‘56” is my take on the birth of Rock n Roll in the '50s. The lyrics of the song are about a high school kid who comes into contact with an alien...(who is then) abducted and shown “the way” and feeling of the music. He is abducted by the music if you will. I also wanted (to) invent a new dance move “The Alien” as an homage to the many new dances of the '50s and '60s. In order to replicate the sound of early Rock n Roll, I sang into old microphones and pre-amps in a couple takes to get that gritty warm sound.” — Tyler Fogerty
Hearty Har's “Radio Man ‘56” is an infectious jam from another age, and possibly another dimension. Listen and dig my friends.
