Large Marge / Press

“Large Marge is a US band located in Lake Charles - Louisiana . Large Marge music combines a mixture of vintage Hard Rock , Heavy Blues Rock and Southern - don't forget they're from Louisiana ! So don't be surprised to find low and fat fuzzy riffs highlighting their tunes . The band also shows in most of their songs an amazing energy allied with incredible grooves . You 'd be convinced when listening to the powerful " Black Coffee " , "Elevator " with its syncopated rhythm or "Slipshod " feeding us with massives and heavy riffs coupled with angry voices . Large Marge has just issued its first eponymous release that you can buy via CD Baby . You can also stream a couple of their LP songs on their Facebook page . Really worth a listen ! ”

“Large Marge is a rock band hailing from way down south in Lake Charles, Louisiana and appropriately play music they call SwampFuzz. Just what the hell is SwampFuzz you ask? After listening to Large Marge several times I think I have the answer. SwampFuzz is mixture of retro late 60's and 70's hard rock with plenty of VERY heavy blues rock influence with plenty of psych elements and a bit of southern twang to it. The heavy riffs are extremely memorable and will certainly have you groovin' while listening to them. All of this music is accompanied by excellent rather raw and angry vocals that work perfect for the style of music. Of course the music is definitely distorted and fuzzy but has modern production values and you can tell it was not recorded in the 60's or 70's even though the band captures the retro style perfectly in both songwriting as well as instrumentation. If I had to name some favorite tracks, I would have to say Black Coffee and Elevators........”

“It’s ass-kicking Southern heavy grooves, dual-riffing, screams and yowls and no shortage of feedback to dirty it up, and the more I hear Large Marge’s self-titled, self-released debut full-length, the more it earns its Johnny Weills-era Alabama Thunderpussy comparison. That’s a good thing. The dudely Louisiana-based foursome are pro-produced and do right by the mix to keep Aaron Myers’ vocals subsumed beneath his and Luke Duke’s guitars, making them sound even bigger. “Black Coffee” isn’t a Black Flag cover, but by the time they get around to the psychedelically ranging “Stoned Waltz” and “Up in Smoke,” I’ve forgotten that and the rest of my woes.”
