Heart Attack Alley - I Put A Spell On You - Live at the Gunsingers' Ball, Wine Cellar

From Auckland, New Zealand, comes the incredible stomp blues trio, Heart Attack Alley. With a sound reminiscent of Suicide and the early Cramps, they are the hottest export from New Zealand. Heart Attack Alley is a three-piece band born out of a love for blues, an obsession with death, and an addiction to playing live. Deceptively simple, emotionally and sonically raw, and featuring tough, original songwriting, their music combines Dr. Karl Steven’s unstoppable “voodoo harmonica,” Kristal G’s pulsating rhythm guitar, and Caoimhe Macfehin’s unrestrained, immediate vocals. Described as the “demon child of Polly Harvey and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins,” their style has earned them a reputation for performing “the original devil’s music; seductive and psychotic” (Cheese On Toast Review; Trixie LaRue Music Review).

In the two short years since they formed, Heart Attack Alley has played everywhere from street corners, dingy bars, and occupations to blues and alternative music festivals. They have also provided high-profile and well-received support for Wanda Jackson and a sell-out national tour with Kitty, Daisy & Lewis. At home in Auckland, people jostle for a chance to watch them perform; Heart Attack Alley has become “the hottest ticket in town” (Volume Magazine). They have now recorded their first 7″ for Voodoo Rhythm Records, featuring a cover version of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell on You” and their own “Cryin’.”
