Artist Mordecai Smyth
Record Title Georgina Jones
Year 2011
Number of discs 1
Similar to? Syd Barrett/Kevin Ayers/Georgie Fame/Cream/Beatles
Record Label Mega Dodo
Genre Pop/Psych

Mordecai Smyth have done something few contemporary bands can, they’ve come up with something refreshingly new with a a classic 60s pop song vibe. The opening riff could have come straight off a Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames album, or better still something by Jimmy Smith. Then the guitars kick in and suddenly it’s sounding like the Rolling Stones (Brian Jones), Cream and The Beatles (check out the guitar duel at the end, very Abbey Road). But this isn’t some derivative, retro rehash, it’s great pop music that is as much now as it is then. And if the infuriatingly catchy riff isn’t enough to get you hooked, the chorus will get you every time. If these guys had been around in the 60s Mojo and Rolling Stone would be writing glowing retrospectives about them. Thank your lucky stars that Mordecai Smyth are here today, and if this single is anything to go by they should be with us for a long time to come.

The single is pressed on nice heavy weight purple and black vinyl. It sounds like it's been very professionally recorded, mastered and cut. Nice crisp top and rich bass. Comes in a thick card picture sleeve. The single is limited to 250 copies and is available from Amazon.
