Former Debris guitarist Keith Cook releases a new single, ‘Never Equate‘, on 15th June, through Riot Records.
The single features Dave Foster, a one-time member of Nirvana on drums and was recorded by legendary grunge producer Steve Fisk, It is the first single from Cook’s forthcoming solo album Rock & Roll Riot.
Cook worked in the tradition of two guitars, bass and drums as pioneered by Buddy Holly, who he is related to, with riffs drawing from punk, hardcore, metal & noise. He played through Hagstrom guitars, vintage tube Supro amps (like Led Zeppelin used), Big Muff distorted bass plus a massive Melvins style drum kit.
After moving to Seattle, Keith Cook was the bass player for Jimi Hendrix’s old bandmate Sammy Drain, and the guitarist for the protopunk band Debris who were included in a history exhibit covering the notable rock and rollers from their home state of Oklahoma.
Now as a solo artist, he’s preparing to release his new albums backed by players from bands such as The Stooges, Nirvana, Wipers, Flipper, The Sonics and many more.
