The Mind Spiders Are Coming

The first salvo from the Mind Spiders came with last year’s World’s Destroyed 7″. It was packed with four great songs and no one was sure if this was a one off thing for Mark Ryan of the Marked Men or not.  Turns out that there’s a lot more where that came from because Ryan in his Mind Spiders persona has just let loose a full album.  It’s got the swagger of T-Rex, the rabble-rousing of Jay Retard and a certain sleek, moody psychedlia reminiscent of Love and Rockets.  Damn, based on that last sentence it sounds like it could be a near perfect record.  It should also be noted that they have a theme song (which every self-respecting band should have) in Mind Spiders Theme and an amazing cover of Little Richard’s Slippin’ and Slidin’  that puts this record over the top for me.

Should I go on?  Maybe you should just order up a copy of  the album over at Dirtnap and surprise yourself at how good this record is.  Your choice of blue or black vinyl. While you’re over there be sure to pick up the White Wires, Goodnight Loving and Tranzmittors records from last year if you haven’t already.

      Tranzmittors are playing here with Paul Collins next week, that should be a good show. Powerpop to the max!
