The Mooney Suzuki - "CBGB OMFUG Masters Live - June 29, 2001" CD

Bearing abso-fucking-lutely no resemblance to their namesake (look it up if you don't know by now), New York's Mooney Suzuki are all primal garage rock, with a liberal tip of the proverbial hat to the great 60's pre-punk rousters like the MC5. Tracks like 'Oh Sweet Susanna' are raved-up slices of bluesy power-pop-rock, complete with big choruses (and even bigger riffs). If you dig on stuff like Thee Headcoats or even The Brian Jonestown Massacre, check out these wild boys, too. (MVD Audio)
