A-BONES / MYSTIC EYES Split 7″
A-Bones/Mystic Eyes- Split 7”. Bashing out garage rock years before it was fashionable and rockabilly-influenced sounds as if the Stray Cats had never happened, the A-Bones are a Brooklyn-based five-piece that approached the sloppy greatness of rock & roll’s past with a beer-addled enthusiasm that had nothing to do with “oldies” or “nostalgia” and everything to do with the primal impulse to play music that’s fast, loud, wild and fun. This split 7” with the like minded Mystic Eyes is another example of their ability to create riveting rock ‘n roll without really sounding like any other band. Both bands take on a Sonny Bono classic here and neither of them sound anything like the originals which is the sign of a really great cover in my book.
