“Greg Platkin, Jeremy Hall and Rick Stearns are Blue Coyote, a Red Hook band that has a sound straight from classic rock radio. The band formed in 2004 at a basement bar and plays a sound straight from the best of the biggest power trios in rock history: the Jimi Hendrix Experience, ZZ Top, Cream and Rush.”
“ARTIST: Blue Coyote TITLE: “Thrown to the Skull and Bones” (Drunk Moose Records) In “Death Car,” the first track on Blue Coyote’s new CD, “Thrown To The Skull and Bones.” the first sound you hear is a revving, roaring engine. That certainly sets the tone, as the three players Greg Platkin (bass and vocals), Rick Stearns (drums) and Jeremy Hall (guitar) do a fine job at reviving the timeless tradition of the rock power trio. Recorded at Rat Fink Studios, this is an unholy cross between Cream, Mountain, BTO and Blue Cheer. From the aforementioned “Death Car,” “Dirty, Mean and Nasty (which is) and the slow grind of “Graveyard Shift,” the threesome know their way around a song — and their instruments — and play with uncanny power and passion. Blue Coyote is a biker festival dream band, or just play the CD and go crazy on your own. Visit Bluecoyoterocks.com.”
