The psych rock punk hybrid of Pancho and The Wizards - hear "Rot" from the EP "Cemetary"




































Pancho and The Wizards out of San Luis Obispo, Calfornia are a kind of psych rock punk hybrid and their EP "Cemetary" is a slice and dice collection of alternative rock that is sometimes hard to pin down. It definitely is not classic punk but pulls in big metal sounds on top of their punk aesthetic like on the track Mausoleum. Then there is Reoccurring Cave that almost feels like a version of Black Sabbath meets surf punk. Dumpster Fire pushes a bit more garage rock / 90's college rock tones. 

And then there is the track Rot, a blistering 3 minutes of punk blending in all the aforementioned sounds. Cool. Oh, and kudos to the musicianship on this album and the vocal performance. I feel more good things coming from this band (or are they a punk collective??-- look at all the past members on their Bandcamp).
