ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SON OF SKOOSHNY is a spin-off featuring former SKOOSHNY frontman Mark Breyer and producer–collaborator Steve Refling.

In his teens, Mark interviewed Ray Davies of the Kinks and Marc Bolan of T. Rex for legendary Crawdaddy magazine.

In the 90s, The Sunday Times of London called an album by his former band Skooshny "an irresistible era-defying classic."

The following has been written about Mid Cent Mod by SON OF SKOOSHNY:

"Brilliantly Lyrical Janglerock from Son of Skooshny":
"Mark Breyer is one of the best underrated rock tunesmiths and lyricists of the past four decades." "...this guy is keeping the literate janglerock flame burning as strongly as any songwriter is these days." "...richly tuneful, jangly, anthemic, deviously lyrical rock." "Both lyrically and musically, this is a genuinely amazing album."
— New York Music Daily (USA)

"...a damn fine example of roots oriented pop." "...a full rich sound." "...a touch of that SoCal sound that flows beautifully from one verse to another..." "Each tune tells a vivid story, the production is flawless and that’s about all you need here…." "Highly Recommended." — Power Popaholic (USA)

"Emotive and evocative…fresh and pleasing….” “The melodies bred by the songwriting engage and at times bewitch around the infectious pop stroll…poetic hues.” “A tender and provocative wash of melodies and vocal harmonies embrace ears and thoughts...elegant sounds and enterprising textures...seduce and richly satisfy….” “deep melodic colour and an emotive potency that stirs thoughts and feelings....” “...strikingly composed and delivered….” “...magnetises ear and senses…ever compelling vocals....” “an outstanding encounter igniting the passions….” “sizzles on the ear whilst lyrics and their delivery spark further use of imagination….” “a rather tasty and exciting release…suggests even greater things are ahead from the LA hailing Son of Skooshny.” “8/10" — The RingMaster Review (UK)

Many thanks to these reviewers as well as to Plastico Elastico Radio Show in Spain and beyond; Radio Free Americana in the USA and overseas; and all the others for the reviews, airplay, videos, mentions, and support! Please support them as well!

The following has been written about Lovers Leap of Faith by SON OF SKOOSHNY:

“Skooshny...specialised in quirky, intelligent power pop with razor-sharp lyrics, complex song structures and big fat rounded guitars. Fast forward to 2010...[Mark] Breyer has teamed up with several long-time collaborators to bring us Son of Skooshny.... If memorably hook-filled songs are your bag, then you need to get your fill of this!” — Phil McMullen, The Terrascope (UK)

“Skooshny made swirling psychedelic pop music with the most distinctive of lead vocals. Now the man responsible for singing and writing most of those songs, Mark Breyer, is back. His new venture is named Son Of Skooshny and the new album is Lovers Leap Of Faith. All the old magic is in place....” — Terry Hermon, Bucketfull of Brains (UK)

"…a vibrant and pleasing collection of guitar pop and sixties teased/seventies spiced melodic rock songs.... All songs leave one enthused and bristling for much more.... Lovers Leap of Faith is a fine album that shows melodic pop does not have to be obvious, unoriginal, or sterile." — Pete, The RingMaster Review (UK)

"No filler here and a very worthy album that rewards the patient listener." — Power Popaholic (USA)

The following has been written over the years about what SKOOSHNY was:

“Contrary to popular rock’n’roll belief, flash isn't everything. Case in point: It's quite conceivable that no band in rock’s hoary history was less flashy, more self-effacing than SKOOSHNY. The name itself, widely disliked even by the band’s strongest supporters, is Russian for ‘boring.’

“This modest band, with its equally modest official recorded output, consistently produced music of rare quality: spectral harmonies, labyrinthine song structures, and playful, literate lyrics that transcended the low-budget productions to which they were constrained to resort.

“For years a small but devoted coterie of fans, collectors, and writers has remembered SKOOSHNY fondly. Now the opportunity is here to discover a fine, potentially brilliant band lost in limbo.”
