the MOJOMATICS "Down My Spine" 7inch

When this Italian duo first started making the rounds a few back they were lumped into the two piece BLOOZEPUNK thing but you could tell by listening to their songs that they definitely had an ear cocked to something a little more "pop" in mind. Here they sound like some damn catchy early 70's regional hit AM radio classic with all the frills and sweetening. Both songs bring a swing and a hook like if Brian Wilson only lost half his mind and kicked Mike Love out 20 years before the regular world found out he was a total dick and decided all that time spent in the studio was time wasted so he stripped down the band to some bare essentials and went on tour with the Troggs as the opening act.
