Every now and again, a band comes along that compels you to move heaven and earth to see them play live – 3AM are one such band.
“3AM it’s the solo project of Chino Burga (La IrA de Dios, La Garua, Necromongo, Los Entierros, Black Saqras, Espira) based on riffs, loops and a lot of tremolo.”
I guess it’s fair to say it was that, whole “lot of tremolo” that initially grabbed my “trembling earballs”!
I first heard 3AM courtesy of the ‘Disappear / Waves‘ split with Sula Bassana, it literally blew me away. I needed, and I mean NEEDED more. Thankfully there was the “UFO Blues Tapes” LP release to quell my raging vinyl-lust.
