Mercury Boy
Get it Goin’
Jafzi Records
May 2003

You are going to love the album art. The sci-fi theme is very well done! By the appearance I almost expected a jump back 20-years to the 1980’s true retro/electro rock. But to my surprise, a wall of well tracked guitars in my ears…upbeat head bobbin’ rock’n roll! However, I would even venture to say their sound touches the pop-punk sound, mixed with well thought out vocals, and a killer sound! This 4-song EP wouldn’t stop playing in my CD player.

Mercury Boy is a power trio with a strong happy twist. I even hear elements of the B52’s; dare I compare. I guarantee you will enjoy this record, over and over again. For a very straightforward rock album, the creativity level is very high binging in sounds and elements of familiar styles that catches the ear and maybe even triggers memories. Who knows? What I do know is you have to listen to these guys. If they come through your town, go see them! I hope I get to some day!

Favorite Track: 2, “Bus Driver”
