Now Hear This: The Mocks | Do You Want Me Too?

If The Beatles stayed in Hamburg & bought a fuzzbox, this might have happened.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:The Mocks, also known as the youngest and most explosive ’60s-influenced band to come out of The Netherlands in decades, are finally ready to unleash their first full-length album onto the world!

In their short existence, they have already conquered many Spanish, German, French, Belgian and Dutch stages. They are a true live band and producer Arjan Spies (The Kik, Les Robots, Fleur) has managed to capture their raw energy onto tape in Studio Teepdek.

The result is their debut album Do You Want Me Too?, which contains 10 solid tracks, ranging from stomping garage to fuzz-filled freakbeat.

The influences of legendary Dutch beat bands such as The Motions, Q65 and The Outsiders are clear, but the three gentlemen harmonize in terms of vocals as if they are actually a power-pop band in disguise. A unique contrast to all the heavy pounding and tearing done by the guitars and drums.

No-nonsense drummer Jimi punishes the pigskins like a true maniac, while the eccentric Tim lets his guitar scream and moan like a banshee over hollow body bass lines by songwriter Rens that are so full and thick, you can feel them in your gut.”
