The Mooney Suzuki – Alive & Amplified

If the Scissor Sisters are New York’s retro-homage to ’70s chart cheese, and The Strokes are the city’s retro-homage to its own garage-punk heritage, The Mooney Suzuki are NYC’s retro-homage to America’s spandex pop-metal scene. Some indication of their priorities is the strictly apolitical slant of “Shake That Bush Again”, while “Primitive Condition”actually celebrates its protagonist’s tumescent stupidity. Even Spinal Tap would struggle to come up with anthems as crass as “Loose’n’Juicy”, “Hot Sugar”, “Naked Lady”and “Messin’In The Dressin’Room”.
