Album Notes
MISTER NEUTRON LOVES YOU draws on the group's devotion to the aggressive rock tradition of The Who, The Jam and Stephen Malkmus, plus the deviant instrumental tendencies of Los Straitjackets. To this they add a pinch of lyrical zaniness inspired by Canada's Dave Wilcox, They Might Be Giants and Cake, not to mention decades of immersion in Monty Python.

Who is Mister Neutron, you ask? Who are the savage young brutes who have stolen the hearts, minds and wallets of America's garage-rock community? Mister Neutron is Damian Fanelli (guitar, vocals), Tony Fanelli (bass) and Drew Paradine (drums).

This action-packed, 19-track CD features 18 originals, including "Naughty Bits," "Soledad O'Brien," "Go, Stinky Monkey!," "A Mod Proposal" and "Mrs. Neil Armstrong," which is about falling in love with the wife of the famous crewcutted astronaut.

MISTER NEUTRON LOVES YOU is four years in the making and 57 minutes in the listening. And everyone who hears their music repeats the same refrain: "To hear Mister Neutron is to fall in love with Mister Neutron."



P.S.: This line is here in case someone searches for Mr. Neutron (a common misspelling of the band's name).

19 great songs, 19 great sounds.
With a tight trio of talented musicians behind its sturdy, steady sound, Mister Neutron Loves You takes you in 19 different musical directions, all of them leading back to the roots of great rock 'n' roll. Especially strong are the blues and surf tracks that make you realize just how good these genres can be with the right people playing the instruments.

With a tight trio of talented musicians behind its sturdy, steady sound, MISTER NEUTRON LOVES YOU takes you in 19 different musical directions, all of them leading back to the roots of great rock 'n' roll. Especially strong are the blues and surf tracks that make you realize just how good these genres can be with the right people playing the instruments. The instros like "Danger: Diabolik" are surf/spy goodies, so you can tell they are leaning in that direction.

This is the first and lesser known Mister Neutron album -- more indie rock -- like a less-frantic They Might Be Giants. Yes, this one has vocals. They evolved into a powerful surf instro combo for the next two outings.

New Jersey address, Austin sound
I was surprised to find that the album was NOT the They Might Be Giants-inspired eclectic, free-form piece I came to expect from initial offerings, but something completely different. While tracks like the surf-rock “Danger: Diabolik” and mod (what else?) “A Mod Proposal” are obviously meant to stand out, much of the album sounds like the Gulf Coast, quasi-jam sound of Cowboy Mouth. Even songs like “Soledad O’Brien” and “Atomic Supermen,” which
lyrically attempt to harness some of the originality of Flansburgh and Linnell, end up sounding like really good New Monsoon or Carbon Leaf tracks. Their hearts and influences may be in Cranford or NYC, but their sound’s all Austin City Limits and Bonnaroo.

Fun, witty and brilliant!
OK, I must admit I haven't felt this giddy since high school. I Love Mister Neutron! They're fun, witty and brilliant! I've been listening to this CD for about two weeks now and I feel like I have an intimate relationship with Mister Neutron and keep having thoughts like you and me. Damian is a genius on the guitar. Every day, I have a new favorite song. At first I was hooked on "Hydroplaning," then "Pretty Green Thing." Now I can't get enough of "Atomic Supermen." After hearing this CD, I really don't mind calling Damian "czar" and promise no hoop earrings ever again! So, if you're ready to listen to great music, get in a good mood and possibly do some dancing, then buy this CD and enjoy the ride!!!!

An interesting rootsy style
This Cranford, N.J.-based trio fronted by brothers Damian and Tony Fanelli plays an interesting rootsy style that blends straight-ahead garage rock with roots and surf elements, with Damian's nimble and tasteful guitar playing deserving extra praise. They also wrap the whole package with a hefty dose of oddball and irreverent humor as evidenced in songs like "Atomic Supermen" and "Go, Stinky Monkey!" The record sprawls across 19 songs, which might be a bit too much for an initial dosage, but there are several songs here that are worthy of attention.

PHIL DIRT, KFJC Radio and reverbcentral.com, Santa Cruz, Calif.

Excellent musicianship and writing
Five of the 19 tracks on this first release from Mister Neutron are instros, one blues, one country and three surf. They are a fun band with a sense of humor and excellent musicianship and writing. "Danger: Diabolik": Harsh double-picked guitar driven by a surf beat play a slightly spy surf instro with power and energy and a great melody. The splashy nature of the song, the powerful delivery and the excellent melody create a great vehicle for the curl. "Naughty Bits" has the edgy twang of Chiyo and the Crescents' "Pink Dominoes," but is a blues intro. Spunky and fun, with punchy percussion and flashy guitar.
Gaminiam and his Orientals' catchy "Come With Me To The Casbah" gets a tuff surf treatment with edge and a basic rock 'n' roll gruffness. Often called "The Casbah" or "Casbah," this is a fun little riff rocker that Los Straitjackets do so nicely. Softly rising from a bass run into twang chords, "10'll Gretsch You 20" sports surf whammy and ringing chords, and a friendly melody with just a touch of worry. A very fine yet simple piece that's a pleasure to listen to. On the modern side, but very cool. "Whirligig" is a splendid country instro with rich tone and a sorta Buck Owens and his Buckaroos vs. Cat Mother and the All Night News Boys sound. Catchy, bouncy, fun and very enjoyable!

Mister Neutron will appeal to music fans with varied taste.
“Mister Neutron Loves You" is Mister Neutron's debut on Austin, Texas-based Deep Eddy Records, which fell in love with the eclectic trio after working together on the "Garage Justice Vol. 1: Austin vs. New York City" comp. It's easy to see why. Mister Neutron refuses to be pigeonholed and likes to mix things up. A quirky but well-rooted combo of mod ("A Mod Proposal"), power pop ("Special Boy"), surf-rock ("Danger: Diabolik"), rockabilly ("Pretty Green Thing"), They Might Be Giants-like nerd rock ("Atomic Supermen") and shades of Stevie Ray Vaughan-inspired Austin blues-rock ("Soledad O'Brien"), Mister Neutron will appeal to music fans with varied taste, an open mind and a silly sense of humor.

AL MUZER, The Aquarian Weekly, New York/New Jersey

Mister Neutron draw on a wide variety of influences.
Masterminded by guitarist/vocalist Damian Fanelli with brother Tony on bass and drummer Drew Paradine working up a fine froth behind him, Mister Neutron draw on a wide variety of influences, including (but certainly not limited to) Weezer, Fountains of Wayne, The Spent Poets, They Might Be Giants … Horton Heat, The Jam, Link Wray, The Who, The Beatles, The Bongos, ELO, The Kinks and World Party. Genre hopping from twisted-lyric gems about celebrity stalking on “Soledad O’Brien,” to lasting love via Egyptian mummification, a lovesick nerd’s “Robot Arm,” bathing a Stinky Monkey, a race of “Atomic Supermen” who turn on their maker, special rules for a “Special Boy” and the “Waterworks” sure to come when she gets the news – the group also hang 12 on the surf-tastic “10’ll Gretsch You 20.” Good stuff.

CHRIS JORDAN, Home News Tribune, East Brunswick, NJ

Muscular guitars and bluesy rock riffs.
What kind of music would They Might Be Giants make if John {Linnell} and John {Flansburgh} were on steroids? The result of this curious – and dangerous – experiment would probably sound like Mister Neutron. … Muscular guitars and bluesy rock riffs frame smirk-inducing lyrics from this power trio that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

JIM TESTA, The Jersey Journal, Jersey City, NJ

A solid foundation of rhythm.
Mister Neutron is a real departure – original, quirky, funny and catchy. Tony and Drew anchor Damian’s guitar and vocals with a solid foundation of rhythm – never obtrusive but always solid and bouncy.
