Leaving Yoko Ono at the Door
The Last Republic - CCTV
Can anyone remember Justin Hawkins from The Darkness? Yes? Great! Now
let him front Muse while they trip out on One Night Only. If that sounds
like a terrible combination then congratulations, you got it in one!
I am really digging this - Mojo Fury seem to be one of the better bands which are emerging from the heavier Spazzy Math Rock scene at the moment. The comparisons to acts like Pulled Apart By Horses and Future Of The Left are fair, with their heavy distortion underpinned by melodic lines. 'The Mann' seems to really hit the spot between being raw enough to contain the bands energy and produced enough to make it easy listening - that's a skill which many producers seem to be lacking nowadays. I really hope to see these guys live at some point - I get the feeling that, although they are bloody good on record, they will blow you away live.
I really want to like these guys purely for the effort they've put
into their promo - it's always nice to receive a well sprayed disk and
a press release on anything but low cost photocopy paper. Unfortunately,
since The White Stripes came blasting out of the garage rock scene ever
Despite all this negativity, the EP does have a few enjoyable moment, but so do the majority of EP's I receive. Back to the drawing board guys - and leave Yoko Ono at the door.
