Mark Duda

Month of Sundays

Review by Gary Hill
This isn't the most original thing I've heard. That's for certain. That said, if you like The Ramones (and really, who doesn't?), you should like this. It shares a lot of ground with that band. It's a short little six song EP that mostly works well.
Track by Track Review
Month of Sundays

Punk with some hints of country music, this is a stomper. It's pretty mainstream stuff, but with a raw edge. It rocks.

Murder on Delancey
The blend of sounds here is punk with classic rock and roll mixed into it. This reminds me a lot of The Ramones. Cheetah Chrome guests on this tune, as does Bobby Rondinelli.
Standoff Love

I dig the wailing sax on this tune. The cut has that same Ramones element merged with some old school doo wop. It's a fun number.

Worse for Wear
A mellower cut, this one really doesn't work at the beginning. The vocals are too rough around the edges. It's kind of power ballad with some country in the mix. It's just a little too DIY in places for my ears. That said, it's not a complete mis-fire.  It does have its charms and parts that work.
Connection
With a definite 70s rock edge, this is a stomper. It's one of the most mainstream things here. It's also one of my favorites. It rocks.
Subway Song

This is very rooted in old school rock and roll with some country in it. I suppose The Ramones is a valid reference on this, too. There is some doo wop on this number, too.
