Album Review

This Green Bay, WI, band's second album is an unholy stew of sloppy, early-'70s Rolling Stones, Midwestern bar band sweat, Detroit proto-punk, and bits of '60s garage rock and psychedelia floating around here and there. Bluesy, boozy guitar rock (with harmonica) is at the base, but given a raucous, snide punky attitude in its execution. In a way, it's music that belongs to no real era; certainly it's revivalistic of some genres, but it doesn't fall neatly into either a late-'60s/early-'70s hard rock groove or a later punk-ish tributary. For some listeners, that description makes them sound like manna from heaven. But it's actually kind of ordinary and unremarkable, even given as hard as these guys are obviously trying to be raunchy and outrageous. The throaty vocals are artless, and what's worse, the production half-submerges them in the mix. Perhaps that was an intentional decision, but when you're working territory many bands have already dug into, lyrics can do something to make you stand out from the crowd. The result is a pretty blurry affair, both in sonics and conception, that like a blurry motion picture doesn't register sharply on the senses or the memory.

A proto-punk garage band that formed at Southwest High School in Green Bay, WI in the late 1990s, the Mystery Girls developed a ramshackle, passionate and almost blues-based sound that seems to belong to the mid-'60s as much as it does the early 21st century, although it wouldn't be quite accurate to think of them as a throwback band. A debut album, Mystery Girls, was released on both LP and CD by Trick Knee Records in 2002, followed by Something in the Water in 2004 from LA-based label In the Red....
