about

If anyone could equal the MC5 and Stooges at their insane best, it's Nixon Now. There's so much fuzzed-out, punked-up riff-crazy power on this disc that you'll feel like brother Wayne Kramer or Fred "Sonic" Smith, whirling with their guitars like dervishes at an early MC5 show, convinced that rock was going to change the world and that the lifestyle would simply PREVAIL.
From the starz n' stripes bellbottom-clad chick on the front to the song titles to the friggin' group name fer crissake, Nixon Now are the Compleat Package, classic underground white-knuckle hard rockers with guitars set on kill. This is all packed into 15 easy-to-swallow short sharp dollops of distortion and excitement, a mere one of which could provide enough energy for an entire album by most bands, not to mention light up the city of your choice on New Year's eve. .
Kevin McHugh, stonerrock.com.com

Hamburg´s hipshakers Nixon Now are one such example of the MC5 legacy and, to tell you the truth, they do the two-minute-and-change supercharged fuzzbomb better than the originals. The one thing that can be said for Nixon Now is that the exude that rare rock n´ roll energy that is so friggin´ hard to capture on a studio recording. Altamont Nation Express actually sounds like the band going Chernobyl in front of a rabid, sweaty and panty-throwing audience. It´s all stun guitars with Kamikaze divebomb solos, Keith Moon-like percussive abandon and pre-Punk snotty spit n´ fuck you attitude. You´ll most certainly dig Nixon Now if the MC5 appeals to you,

Bippin' an' boppin' and telling a dirty joke or two
In walked this chick and I new she was up to something
And I kissed her right there out of the blue


I said, "Hey baby, meet me I'm a tough guy
Got my cycle outside, wanna try?"
She just looked at me and rolled them big eyes and said,
"Ooh, I'd do anything for you, 'cause you're a rocker"

That's right

I'm a roller too, honey

She´s a motorcycle she´s a limousine
She´s the fastest thing around and i´m in deep
