“Strum Sum Up”
Magna Carta MA-9094
King’s X bassist/vocalist’s newest solo album.
dUg Pinnick (King’s X, Poundhound), metal music’s very own Sly Stone, finds inner peace through his visceral, loose, jam-heavy new solo effort, “Strum Sum Up”. Like a slice of Pinnick’s raw essence, “Strum Sum Up” is so free, so instinctual; it’s Pinnick, as you’ve never heard him before. This raw, wah-wah-injected groove machine is powered by the stellar talents of Wally Farkas of Galactic Cowboys fame, Army of Anyone’s Ray Luzier, Billy Idol’s guitar wizard Steve Stevens, Hal Sparks, 11’s Alain Johannes, Kellii Scott, David Henning, and Pinnick himself (on guitar).
“It’s the realest thing I’ve ever done,” Pinnick says.
But don’t take our – or Pinnick’s – word for it. Give “Strum Sum Up” a spin and let its explosive, groundbreaking songs hit you like a ton of musical dynamite.
