Mardo (House of Restitution Records)
The eponymous debut, Mardo [House of Restitution Records] is just pure rock and a whole lot of fun. Mardo dishes out twelve in-your-face, all-original rock tunes with the exception of a Huey Lewis tune. All the instruments are performed by these talented brothers, with the bonus of a sax solo by Les Pierce on their Huey Lewis cover. All the instruments are performed by these talented brothers, with the bonus of a sax solo by Les Pierce on their Kinks’ cover. Mardo is one of those records you just gotta have playing while picking up chicks in gridlock. Burn yourself a copy, toss it in her car with your phone number on it, and say, “I know these guys.” Score City, brother.
Phil’s Personal Ear-prick Picks: "Poor Paul," "Hey Girl!," "Anyone But Me," "Son, Catch a Thief," "Told You So," and "I’m the One."
