Mr. Twit - International Rock and Roll Review

by Gary Schwind

.
According to their bio, the members of Mr. Twit like to integrate lots of musical styles. It doesn't take long to find out this is true. The first song "Then Again" is a frenzy of both good ol' American rock n roll and some sort of central Asian sound you might hear from David Lindley. As if that weren't enough, the song contains some good satirical lyrics about a hipster girl. The energy in this tune is a great tone-setter for the album.

"Then Again" is followed by "Mania," that reminds me a lot of Blondie. It's another energetic, guitar-driven song. Not much I can say about this song except that I recommend cranking up the volume when you play this one.

"Next To You" sounds like it was pretty heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt. It's a peppy, jazzy tune with some excellent guitar work. All the musicianship in the song is good, but the guitar is definitely the focus. "Waiting in an Airport" is another jazzy song on the album. This one has the feel of Brazilian jazz.

If it's not enough that they have an infinite amount of influences, they also have a song called "Masters of Dinner Challenge." This song is about the Iron Chef Challenge. That's right. They wrote a song about the Iron Chef Challenge. And I must say, it's a really good song.

This is a really good album. It is a burst of energy from start to finish, but it ends a little too quickly. One thing I know for sure is that these guys weren't kidding when they said they like to integrate lots of musical styles. Any band that can bounce from old-time jazz to new wave and Bogmen-style rock with such ease, must be doing something right.
