Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Mullet Monster Mafia - Power Surf Orchestra
|If you like The O'Hara's at all, you'll like this. It's loud, intense, dark, and the rock solid dangerous surf is complimented with trumpet. The Mullet Monster Mafia's music is not melodic, but the power and menacing are so strong that you might well not care about that.|
Picks: The Wallrider, Swamp, Sinister People Secrets, Freshwater
Track by Track Review
Dark double picked stereo delay enhanced guitar, raw trumpet, and a solid surf beat and bass carry off a shore grinder. "The Wallrider" is not very melodic, but it has lots of danger.
Grumbly bass, grand stereo chop chords, harmonic chords, chants, dark glissandos, and solid drums and subliminal bass combine with trumpet for a large and dangerous track. "Swamp" is riff based, not really melodic, but is without a doubt loud and dominating, and some of the muted fills are just superb!
Double picked intense, with big drums attitude, and grumbling danger. The relentless power and energy will wear you out! Punky, but more surf than spunk! The trumpet creates an avant gard feeling. Great drums!
"Freshwater" is a slower number, but certainly not a less powerful or loud one. Two guitars compliment each other, trumpet flatters the song, and the drums and bass are strong and hit hard. Cool track!
