Minneapolis’ Gasoline Silver are a rawk band drawing influences from ‘70s American punk and a bit of British blues rock. Being a traditional power trio, they like to rock hard and this live clip today gives you a great idea of their overall aesthetic. Frontman Ron Franklin has three prior solo albums to his credit and for his latest endeavor, he’s teamed with Andy Hertel on drums and Josh Misner on synthesizers. Pulling the bass sounds from keyboards instead of a guitar immediately brings to mind the soul sounds of Stax, but also draws on British ‘60s beat like the Small Faces. Gasoline Silver’s self-titled debut will release 7 September via Victorian Pictures.
