Exclusive Premiere: Chief Ghoul, ‘Roll Baby Roll, Kill Baby Kill’
With little more than an acoustic guitar and his powerful vocals, Lee Miles (a.k.a. Chief Ghoul), is nearing the release of his third full-length album, the aptly titled III.
With the awareness of folk greats like Jack Elliott and Woody Guthrie, Chief Ghoul uses raw, garage rock-fueled music to tell his stories. Today (March 10), Diffuser is ecstatic to give you a taste of what’s to come with III in the form of the new track, “Roll Baby Roll, Kill Baby Kill” -- listen to it in the audio player below.
"This song is my ode to the exploitation films of the '60s and '70s," Miles explains. "They were gratuitous and they were awesome. Not too many movies get made like that anymore and I actually think that’s a good thing."
He goes on, "Sex, drugs, six-shooters, women, bikes, monsters and all things uncalled for -- that’s how I feel about this song. If this just isn’t how they make them anymore, I think that’s a good thing, too."
We haven't heard music like Chief Ghoul's in a long time, thanks to the hints of the Black Keys and Jack White on top of the stripped-down authenticity of a Greenwich Village coffeehouse. Needless to say, III is an unforgettable listening experience.
