"Man, what a surprise this CD turned out to be. It looked so cool (great looking band on the cover) that I really thought it would not be that good musically. Boy, was I wrong! These 60's Mod looking guys (and one very cool looking girl) have the look and the sound down. What sound? Try combining Booker T. & the MG's, The Ventures, Love (they cover "She Comes in Colors" very well) and The Prisoners (obscure but great garage band from England) and you have The Omega Men sound. "The Spy Fi Sounds.." is great garage rock n roll that's 60's based, but produced in modern yet not too polished fashion. And fashion is what this band displays to the max- not only in the coolest mid to late 60's threads (Austin Powers watch out!), but in choosing carefully their highly talented influences. The band performs 15 tracks- 11 originals and 4 covers (including an excellent version of "Beat Girl" by The John Barry 7). Their original material rocks and swings (as in the swingin' A Go-Go 60's) with soul (very good Hammond organ by Susan Mackey), jangle-full guitars (by Rhythm guitarist Mark Ebeling)and raspy-raw vocals (by singer/guitarist Jonathan Sipes).Check out the surfy "Theme from XKE", the cool mod-fest that is "My favorite Dean Martian" and the growling vocal number, "Mania for Blondes"! Why this band did not score either of the two Austin Powers movies is beyond me. Guess Mike Myers was given the wrong package by his film music supervisors. "The Spy Fi Sounds of The Omega Men" is the one, baby!"
