ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review from Whisperin & Hollerin - Aug 2nd 2008

'MCP BAND, THE'
'Above the Waterline'

- Genre: 'Blues' - Release Date: '2008'

Our Rating: 8 out of 10 stars

The MCP Band embody everything that an American bar band is supposed to be. Drunk on its own alcohol-fueled, blues-soaked rock, the MCP Band delivers authentic blue-collar grit with no studio slickness or limp ballads to water down the dirt. In other words, this is heady biker music with no compromises.

Unlike many of the roots and Americana acts out there, the MCP Band knows that the real deal should rock like hell. "Borrowed Time" scorches the walls with mean, bluesy riffs and raspy vocals; however, true to the group's classic-rock leanings, the track is melodic, wonderfully catchy. Even more gnarly is "Poor Tomorrow," packing heat with throbbing bass lines and driving guitars. "Breathing Life" is raw electric blues; you can imagine the smoke coming out of the amps. The MCP Band must be a potent live creature because this CD definitely has an exhilarating live vibe to it; listening to it, it feels like you're only inches away from the lads, soaking in all the feedback.
The MCP Band have energy to burn, and this record is relentless in its quick pacing. Beginning with the rollicking boogie piano of "Particular Condition" to the heavy chunks of shrapnel on "You're the One," the MCP Band just keep moving, and we're partying along with them.



Review from Overground Underground June 17, 2008

The MCP provide entry way into an ‘adventurous way of life’

Reviewed by Sabrina Tinsay

The MCP Band/Above the Waterline


The MCP Band is a natural, capturing an adventurous view of life, the band and keeps their audience listening. In the song titled “Won’t Let Go,” the inviting guitar solo opens the door for many to dive into a wine of rock and blues. One may find him or herself swaying back and forth, kicking up their old town boots to dance the night away with MCP’s “E Funk.” In the song titled “Centerville,” it is apparent that MCP’s raw talent is uniquely clever: “In a refuge we call sleep…it seems that we were solid.” What a wonderful way to start the weekend filled adventure; surely listen to the MCP Band’s righteous tunes.

Boogie rockin' party music from New Jersey

A top notch slice of grubby-jeans and t-shirt, blazing, guitar-pop, roots-rock from New Jersey. That's no put down. When it's done right, there's little better music played on this planet, and the MCP Band does it right.

Started in 2001 with "Rock 'til you drop" attitude, singer-songwriter, Matt Coffy, who has warmed up for acts like Foghat, The Guess Who, Bob
Weir among others, the Band has blazed new sonic journeys into the roots rock revival scene. This music is the kind of thing you'd expect to hear walking into a blue-collar bar for a Miller High Life on a Saturday night in a suburban town. The guitar solos are fluent, the riffs jangle, and the rhythm section rolls along like a strong shot of hooch.

A fan once described them as ….. The Black Crows met John Cougar's "Scarecrow" while at a medicine show revival held by Warren Zevon and Dan Baird in
outer space…."

Filling out the rest of band, on Bass is John Pope who somehow arrived at playing with Matt now and again for over 20 years now. Jay Singer, whose guitar speaks several languages, majors in rousing a crowd with his insane tone and passionate playing. And the man who keeps the whole ship of fools together, Chuck Tumulty on the drums, beating the daylights out those eardrums if you get too close to him during a live set.

The band has been playing in and around the NJ and NYC bar scene for the last five years. With a trail of steady gigs behind them, whether it is O'Donoghues On First in Hoboken or Kenny’s Castaway in NYC, the band continues to soldier on, winning over new music fans. Besides the 100 or so, varied classic cover songs the band has under there belt, they have become comfortable with playing entire sets of their own songs in front of audiences.

With the debut of 2007 CD entitled “Above The Waterline”, you’re hearing the boys just like you would hear them on stage. The production was recorded basically live, its raw, practically unedited playing, is not your ultra safe adult-alt-country-rock processed material. It’s been well received by reviewers and fans alike. Recently, the title track on the CD, Particular Condition, has received attention over at GarageBand.com. Winning “Track on the Week” and maintaining a “Top 20” status in the Americana genre. That tune has beat out 100’s of other bands on its way up the charts. With Great songwriting, the album is chock full of amped up melodies to get your arms flaring and your head bobbing.

Their high spirited and unhinged live shows are an incredible blend of talent, guts and pure inspiration for those who dig the roots of Rock and Roll. The bands getting ready to party, so bring your friends, get out on the dance floor and they'll learn ya how to have a great time!
