MICHAEL AND THE MUMBLES
S/T

IND 074 LP

Michael and the Mumbles. Sure, this groupís moniker features the Christian name of a designated leader, followed by the article ďandĒ and a random plural noun thatís alliterative with the first name Ė meaning, you can guess where this musicís loyalties lie. Itís pure Nuggets-style í60s garage rock. But whatís paricularly important about Michael and the Mumbles is that the Michael in question is the eccentric and legendary Michael Motherfuckiní Yonkers. Before Michael Yonkers Band reinvented how psych music was recorded and enjoyed, Yonkers played it a little more straightforward with the Mumbles.
