Muck and the Mires- A Cellarful of Muck CD. The first caveat of doing garage rock 40 years after the Nuggets era is that your music better sound like a sweaty, rowdy dance party broke out in your basement. I'm talkin' all the hip-shaking, hell-raising, and ballsy backbeat that a guitar-riffing, R&B-fused pub rock band can muster. Boston's Muck And The Mires have done that exceptionally well for over a decade like a proud protegee of Barry & the Remains, and they reach their apex with this snortin' set of originals straight outta 1965. Every band working garage scene should hire producer Jim Diamond at Detroit's Ghetto Recorders, as he makes the takes sound crisp, rattling, and manic as ever. Thirteen absolute hits on ‘A Cellarful of Muck’ and there isn't a track that misses. Recommended.
