Doctors Of Madness
Make It Stop!
Doctors Of Madness drop Make It Stop! their first single in 40 years.
19 July 2019 saw Doctors of Madness release the first single from their upcoming album, Dark Times. Make It Stop! is a blistering attack on the world shift towards right wing extremism and sees Richard ‘Kid’ Strange joined by Susumu (bass) and Mackii (Drums) Ukei of Japanese thrash glam punk band Sister Paul, with backing vocals from Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, fierce young protest singer Lily Bud, violinist Dylan O Bates and percussionist Andy Gallop.
Strange hurled the Doctors of Madness onto an unsuspecting world back in 1974 and, three records later and numerous mind-expanding gigs later, they imploded in 1979. They were the band that influenced more future bands than they sold records, and anyone who saw them would be plagued by dreams or nightmares for years afterwards.
They were psychedelic proto-punk and had a vision of a noir cyber-punk, dystopian future; imagine William Burroughs joining the Velvet Underground and you get the picture.
The single is available for streaming and download
If Make It Stop! is anything to go by, Louder Than War can’t wait for the album, which is due for release in September.
