ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Mangoes are Bret Bingham and Tim Morse.

Bret Bingham's music has appeared on multiple television and cable shows including Access Hollywood, Fox's Brimstone, E True Hollywood Story and MTV's Made. The Mangoes is his first release since 1996.

Tim Morse began his instrument instruction at a young age and started composing immediately upon picking up the guitar. He later moved onto the piano and studied as a music composition major, writing extended pieces such as a string quartet and two piano sonatas. During this time he performed with various rock and fusion bands and played on many recording sessions. Tim is also a published author and his book Yesstories has sold over 20,000 copies worldwide. His latest book Classic Rock Stories was published by the St. Martin's Press and was recently featured on the Howard Stern show. He continues to write for music magazines such as Mix, Guitar World, Vintage Guitar, Keyboard and Bass Player. Tim's first album of original music was entitled Transformation. Transformation was well received by the Progressive Rock community and recognized as an original voice, in the tradition of bands such as Yes and Genesis, yet recorded and performed with a modern edge. Tim's 2012 solo album is called Faithscience.

Headed for a Fall
By The Mangoes

Billy and his band ("Billy and the Kidz") have been struggling on the road, playing a series of miserable gigs. At a grimy truck stop Billy gets a text message telling him that the band has been dropped from the label and the tour has been canceled. Disheartened, Billy and his roadie Pablo return home only to discover the lovely barista Candy singing as she prepares their drinks. Seeing her potential Billy is able to convince her to join him in California for a possible career in music. They score a minor dance hit with the song "Stupid Chorus" and happily become romantically involved. However, Candy quickly tires of Billy's domineering Svengali ways. She wants to pursue a new musical direction and tells him she needs to end their relationship. Candy quickly hooks up with a sleazy A&R man and Billy is devastated. He becomes obsessed with Candy and begins stalking her. Ultimately she puts a restraining order on him to end the harassment. Candy goes onto greater success with hit after hit while Billy becomes more bitter and disenchanted. In his dilapidated home he stares at Candy's face on the cover of a magazine and ponders his uncertain future…

Power Pop meets Progressive!
The Mangoes CD is like a well stocked kitchen with all the ingredients and spices a chef would need for a grand 5 course meal. The Mangoes have cooked up a storm of an album that music fans should eat up! There are elements of Power Pop (ala Jellyfish, Bourgeois Tagg) and Progressive Rock (ala Toy Matinee). But one will also hear influence from the likes of David Bowie, Supertramp, Todd Rundgren, Queen, Pink Floyd and certainly The Beatles. But there are also surprising bits, such as "Barista Girl" that sounds like the stepbrother of "Besume Mucho", then they followed by a Santana-esque "Samba Mambo". One of the stand-out songs is the quirky "Stupid Chorus", which is a humorous take on fad hits songs by many of today's female artists. It could be a hit for Katy Perry! In fact, this CD is so fruity it would make a perfect soundtrack for a Quentin Tarantino film. Buy it. Eat the whole thing!

Delightful
A clever combination of witty music and lyrics with stellar musicianship. Nice prog-colorations of various music styles. Real musical substance lies beneath the glossy surface. This is as enjoyable for the casual listener as it is for the serious musician. Fun for all!

Refreshing
This is one of the most refreshing cd's I've heard in a quite some time. Every song is different, with something for all moods. There are elements of classic rock, progressive rock, art pop, ballads, jazz and even club dance. I highly highly recommend it.
