new Men In Grey Suits original surf/other album!

Post by doctorock78 » Wed Nov 25, 2020 3:38 pm

Hey all, longtime poster here but been out of the loop lately. I wanted to let you know we released a new album this pandemic. Also check out the first record if you are so inclined. New one is called "Village Eater", first one is called "Return of the Cnidarians". Let me know what you think of them! Don't be shy, I can take constructive criticism fairly well (just be nice). Hope you are all well and still hitting them strings!

Here is the website: www.meningreysuits.com


By the way, most of the guitars on these are a 1966 Jazzmaster and a Johnny Marr jag, with some tele and guild Bluesbird. Amps are all over the place, but mostly a 76 Princeton Reverb and 64 Ampeg reverberocket 2.
Cheers!

Just finished listening to it - I really dug it. I particularly liked Van Deux where it gets a bit Django Reindhart-ey at the end.

Just listening to "Village Eater". I like it!
I dig that you avoid the surf stereotypes, like let's do a Dick Dale style song, an Astronauts style song, and then finish with a Atlantics type song. That's the way many trad-style bands approach surf music, and I must confess that I am bored shitless with that kind of trad surf music.
