Babylon Shakes: featuring former Smashed Alley vocalist release 'Veleveteen Libertine' video
First official video release from Virginia's own vintage sleaze upstarts, Babylon Shakes.The band has a new 5 song EP that will be released in early 2018. This trio is comprised of Chris Clark- guitar and lead vocals, Gary Jordan- bass and vocals and Jeff Mortimer- drums, percussion and vocals.
Babylon Shakes is a project that combines the rollicking funk of vintage Aerosmith, the reckless punk edge of the New York Dolls and a good dose of straight up Hanoi Rocks.
Lead vocalist and guitarist Chris Clark is no stranger to sleaze rock. As the songwriter and frontman for bands like Smashed Alley and Last Call Messiahs, he delivers catchy, dirty rock n roll songs with a distinct Hollywood rasp. Babylon Shakes rhythm section includes veteran musicians Gary Jordan and “Morty” Jeff Mortimer. Each with over 30 years of experience touring, recording, and performing live. Make no mistake despite the extensive experience, they haven’t slowed down one bit since they began playing music at an early age. They each still play with a chip on their shoulder with much still to prove, feeling energetic and ready to Rock! These two have rocked the stage together countless times with bands such as Kage, Bought by Blood, and most recently Last Night’s Villain. Their dedication to their musicianship and stage show is as entertaining as it is musically euphoric to the audience.
