CD Reviews

Exciting. influences. madness
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Great disc. Combines jazz influences with surf, noise, rock, etc. Exciting at times, melodic too. All the renditions of classic Mancini tunes do justice. Check out "A Shot in the Dark" and "Mr. Yunoshi" for fast paced stuff, but there's variety. Only problem: on one or two songs they indulge in Sonic-Youth-esque noise that distract the listener from the overall song. but don't let that stop you. Check this out. Plus, one of the band members is Dave Brubeck's son! But there's not much of a musical resemblance. A fun CD, unabashedly cheesey at times (Peter Gunn meets Baby Elephant Walk for the finale. Hilarious and entertaining). Think Jazz meets Laika and the Cosmonauts meets Morphine. Enjoy! David Brodie"

"Whoa! What a breath of fresh air! This is without a doubt the greatest new musical purchase I've made in years. Inovative and just damn entertaining. A couple of these guys are frequent Tom Waits backers, which is why I bought the CD. I wasn't prepared for this. This is fun!"
