We just noticed that the Stranger gave our show w/ Marcy Playground a nice preview last week. Kurt B. Reighley had some nice things to say. We’re blushing…. Check it out!
Marcy Playground, Stag
(Tractor) What does it sound like when you cross singer Steve Mack, formerly of Undertones spin-off That Petrol Emotion, with grunge survivor Ben London of Alcohol Funnycar and alt-country act Sanford Arms? Would you believe… a power-pop band? This local quintet has already issued two EPs of streamlined and sinewy gems like “Love Her Records,” sure to please Cheap Trick and Guided by Voices fans. As befits a band that posts old Raspberries footage on its blog and courts mouth-breathing fan boys who groan whenever some VH1 talking head dismisses the Knack as “one-hit wonders,” Stag’s latest must-have is a limited-edition colored vinyl 45, “Don’t Lead with Your Heart.” KURT B. REIGHLEY
