I was just recently introduced to this band..And me being a big fan of most of the bands on Doghouse records, I was optimistic about hearing these guys. It's not punk, It's not hardcore, And I am NOT calling it emo. Its just flat out rock and roll, no but's about it. All four songs are good..I.

I was just recently introduced to this band..And me being a big fan of most of the bands on Doghouse records, I was optimistic about hearing these guys.

It's not punk, It's not hardcore, And I am NOT calling it emo. Its just flat out rock and roll, no but's about it.

All four songs are good..I can say I was kinda thrown off at first by the first few seconds of "million dollar messenger boy" but it soon picked up into some good rocking stuff.

The only problems I have are with the singer. It would boost my liking of this EP up there if he would just sing a little louder, and at times his voice becomes a little too whiny for me, but the rest of the band is stellar with the perfect mix of the crunchy, and clean sounding guitar not to mention awesome bass lines and good drum work.

I would compare them to the likes of great bands such as Errortype:11, The Get up Kids and even J-church. It's just some good rock and roll and it's a nice CD to put in to get away from all punk and hardcore..(which we all need to do sometimes).

Hey, Rich.... ^^^ that's you. Anyway, yea, I dated the singers sister for a few years and I feel too close to the whole thing to understand just how big Radar Mercury was. Either way, great CD... too bad they broke up.

The singer is now doing a project called Andaluca. It's pretty mellow; a definite departure from Radar Mercury. Hopefully he gets back in a rock band.

Wow, I'm amused that this review is even up here. I'm good friends with the singer's sister and while I heard this a while ago I didn't think I'd see it up on any review sites. I agree with pretty much everything you said, it's too bad they broke up...
