CD Reviews

Good raw rock--'Just how it should be.'
Padraig Keogh | Ireland | 02/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fine example of how rock music should be played. With John's N.Irish accent adding to Pat's guitar solo's on the "flying V" and Tommy banging away at the back, the gap left by "Mama's Boys" has never been filled. The "boys" appeared on Irish TV in 1997/98 with a new band called Celtus--nothing since. "Plug it in" is an excellent CD for anyone who appreciates rock music the way it used to be, Hard and Loud!"
Great CD!

"Some of you out there might remember Mama's Boys from back in the mid 80's. They had some hits on MTV with songs like "If The Kids Are United" and their version of "Mama We're all Crazy Now". They are a group of 3 very talented brothers from Ireland (Pat, Tom, and John McManus) who have put together some great songs. My favorite songs on the "Plug It In" CD are "Runaway Dreams", "Straight Forward", and "In the Heat of the Night". I'm not sure what this group is up to these days, but I highly recommend this CD for anyone out there who likes some great metal and hard rock that gets you moving!"

"Great hard rock from 3 Irish brothers. I played this LP until it was worn out. Great to be able to get a digital copy now. These guys were so tight and inspired. The way real hard rock is supposed to be. Pat's guitar work was insane at times. I saw them open for Ratt and Blackfoot in 1984 and they blew them all away. Also saw them play a full set at a little club in Champaign , IL a few days before that. Sadly Tommy the drummer died from leukemia and John and Pat no longer play rock and roll."
