ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Emerging from the primordial soup of the collective unconscious and bursting upon the American musical scene with all the force of a truckload of pork chops, the Mold Monkies are here. And they won't leave.

Begun as an experiment in power pop by shadowy Northumberlandese punk-pop fixture Nick Appleby (Chopper, The Absolute Zeros) and other guy Russell Shaddox (Buzzbaby, Biff and the Squids), the Mold Monkies quickly evolved into an exploration of Spinal Tap's aphorism that "there's a fine line between stupid and clever."

"It's noisy, it's goofy, it's hyperenergized," said Russell, his TV-glazed eyes slowly gravitating back toward the siren song of a CSI marathon. "But most of the songs have a genuine melody, which is an increasing rarity in today's mainstream pop landscape. So we're proud of that, or something."

Nick agrees, nodding his head slowly. Traumatized by the creation of the new CD, for weeks he has been unable to articulate any words except "Pat the bunny."

"Our formative cultural environment was the late 70s and early 80s," said Russell, clearly enraptured by the sound of his own voice. "Growing up in England, Nick loved the 'punk' and 'new wave' scenes that were all the rage with the youngsters back then. Meanwhile, I was in San Antonio, listening to a melting pot of power pop, prog-rock, punk, new wave, Celt-rock and Philly soul. That's why I am confused now, and look to Nick for direction and moral guidance."

"Pat the bunny," Nick agrees.

Overcome your natural repulsion. Purchase this fine musical product. Find out what The Mold Monkies are all about, because if you don't, you won't know. What they're all about.

Fantasticly Original and Full of Life
This is very probably the most original CD I have listened to this year, it is supurbly put together, there is not a single track that I dislike and it is so refreshing to hear an album that has been though about in terms of lyrics, music and overall atmosphere.
This is an album you will not be able to ignore, sounds fantastic at all times of day in any situation, (within reason, obviously wakes or cremations would not benefit from such lively music)

The instruments are skillfully played, the tempo is just right, and full marks for the vocals. Beautifully done MM!
Like the Cramps crossed with Jullian Cope on Acid, this is a must have CD, 'Nixons Nose' alone is worth the asking price.
Thanks for a great bit of music, keep it up!
Stop reading, start buying.
