It took them a while to record their very first full length, but when they did (at Serakos Studio, Warsaw, spring 2006) it turned out to be really worth waiting for. The record was called “Lazy” and well... it really was. The title illustrated Elvis’ attitude towards the so-called reality and their music. The world rolled on, the boys played more gigs and finally there came the time to reveal what was going on in their heads.
On “Favourite State Of Mind” the sound is full of space, stylish and the non-obvious guitars are accompanied by multi-layered vocals. Inspirations ranged from The Who, David Bowie, T. Rex to Turbonegro and some more recent swampy stuff from the US. The band employed unconventional recording techniques and sound experiments that could give certain purists a nervous drool.
Elvis Deluxe applies a strong rock’n’roll punch to your jaw that will make you hear colours and see the divine beauty of their music. After the record was finished, the line-up changed slightly. Mechu was replaced on guitar by Bert Trust. This old mate of Elvis’ used to play in Warsaw stoner bands Castor Fiber and Oregano Chino, which makes him a perfect fit for Elvis Deluxe in terms of fascination with roots rock and dirty sound. The dudes have charisma and have the skills and even though they’re taking it easy, they take it seriously.
The years of long going friendship and jamming together made them only tighter and hungrier for good shows and the road adventures. They will roll slow and if you stand on their way... well, you can be sure to roll with them...
