The Nutley Brass

The Misfits Meet The Nutley Brass - Fiend Club Lounge

Review by Eric Meli

First let me say that this is not a Misfits CD. It's a tribute album by The Nutley Brass (which is the creation of Sam Elwitt) who have done other tributes of bands like the Ramones. If you take music seriously this may not be the disc for you, but if you like "tongue in cheek" stuff you might enjoy  this.  All the songs are composed pretty well. It's a fun album to listen to.

Track by Track Review
Last Caress
This catchy track starts out with horns then jumps in with the rest of the instruments - including a whistle.
Astro Zombies
This one kinda reminds me of a 70's TV show theme song.
Where Eagles Dare
"Where Eagles Dare" starts out with an Eastern Indian sound (sitar-like) and has a 60's party feel to it.
Some Kinda Hate
This cut has a  heavy a 50's styled groove.
Hybrid Moments
Here's another one that I could imagine hearing as the begining of a TV show.
There's a cute little lounge/jazz style to this track.
Teenagers From Mars
OK, this one has vocals to it, and it gave me a giggle (like a Warner Brothers cartoon).
A low mellow lounge feeling to this track gives us something that would fit in on a game show.
The bubbles and surf guitar give this song some humor.
There is kind of a space jazz (loungy) feeling to this number.
Die, Die My Darling
The final song sounds a little like something out of a James Bond movie.
