 The Mooney Suzuki rocks! It’s really as simple as that. You want “garage rock”? Forget The Strokes, The Vines and that whole crew. This is the real deal. “In A Young Man’s Mind” pumps hard, has an impossible to forget hook and deserves to be all over the airwaves. “Electric Sweat” blends AC/DC and The MC5 together in new and exciting ways. To top it off, these guys have the songwriting chops those other bands dream of having. One listen to “Oh Sweet Susanna” and you’ll be singing it all day. This is pure, unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll that no one knew survived the Woodstock era. Hendrix’s ghost weaves through “It’s Showtime Pt. II,” Keith Moon could’ve been drumming on “I Woke Up This Mornin’” and Eric Burdon wishes he had written “Natural Fact.” Electric Sweat is an underground future classic brimming with energy and fire. Maybe now that Columbia Records has caught on, the rest of the world can get an earful, too. If you’ve ever loved rock ‘n’ roll, get this now.
