THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Muck & The Mires have raised the garage-rock banner high over the palace, proclaiming a new chapter in rock ’n’ roll.
This new full-length, produced by the legendary Jim Diamond (White Stripes, The Fleshtones, The Sonics) features a royal 14 songs, allowing the group to explore deep all of their favorite rock subgenres. There’s the power-pop punch of Cupid’s Not A Friend of Mine, the ’70s AM gold of Too Soon To Fall In Love, a bit of psychedelia in the form of Strange Waves, gritty garage-punk via I’m Your Man and a return to their Merseybeat roots with Don’t Start Running Away.
Boston’s international ambassadors of garage rock ‘n’ roll, Muck & the Mires have been described as a blend of the Hamburg-era Beatles and the CBGBs-era Ramones. Their songs are reminiscent of the 1960s British Invasion, all two minutes long and all potential hits! Their live show is a high-energy blast of fast-paced, post-punk gritty garage rock ’n’ roll. They have built a worldwide following through relentless touring, radio and satellite airplay and a string of recordings, produced by Kim Fowley and Jim Diamond, considered by many to be cult classics.
In 2004 the band gained worldwide recognition when they won Little Steven Van Zandt’s (E-Street Band/Underground Garage) national battle of the garage bands. The band have performed coast-to-coast in the U.S., U.K., EU, South America, Canada & Japan, sharing bills with many of their heroes including The Sonics, New York Dolls, Ray Davies, Flamin’ Groovies, The Stooges, Paul Collins Beat, The Fleshtones, The Remains and even Beatle Pete Best. The palace gates are open and all our invited in for a smashing time. Long live rock ’n’ roll and greetings From Muckingham Palace!”
