Louisville band Coliseum has released four albums of blistering rock that falls somewhere between punk and noise; the latest is the massive Sister Faith. The band's choice of Eddie Money's "Shakin'" was pretty perfect: It's such a gloriously simple song that it could only benefit from such an intense treatment. Coliseum took it up a notch by asking Bruce Lamont to bring in his saxophone and give the whole thing some extra color. (Experimental music fans will recognize Lamont from the bands Yakuza and Bloodiest; Led Zeppelin fans from his portrayal of Robert Plant in the unstoppable tribute band Led Zeppelin 2.) Bonus points to Coliseum for being inspired by the greatest crank-call series in the history of such things, Longmont Potion Castle.
