Album Notes
Buried in the Backyard of My Heart
by The Hit & Mrs.

Like the stereotypical Irish guy referring to everyone as a "bastard", bands that cater to the Pixies consistently satisfy my curious simple pleasures. Up until now, no submitted band has quenched my dementia until The Hit & Mrs.'s Buried in the Backyard of My Heart.

Many influences beyond the above infiltrate CD's mix. The band relates that their influences include: The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Modern Lovers and T. Rex – I'll be damned, however, if this does not come off as a romanticized The Jesus and Mary Chain [JM&C] and Pixies effort. Buried in the Backyard of My Heart's inspirations navigate the periphery, but their seemingly incidental stumbling is what has been ignorantly missed with the last garage revival.

The Hit & Mrs. offers the long-awaited response to the Pixies covering JM&C's "Head On". The result is brilliant, unflinching and infinitely listenable. Nelly, Bubba, and V. Stak's collaborative joy drives Buried in the Backyard of My Heart.

Don't believe, follow their outside link to hear test their conveniently autoplayed effort yourself...

The Hit and Mrs. Web

Written & Recorded in the capital city of Ohio; Nelly, Bubba & V. Stak set out to create a follow up to their critically acclaimed web exclusive
album, (100 tracks under 60 seconds each). They decided this outing would be a standard full length CD.

Influenced by The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Modern Lovers and T.Rex, the boys of The Hit & Mrs. mix straight ahead rock with alt-country and punk stylings. It’s a meal best served with waffle fries and a slice of peanut butter pie.

Nelly sings, plays guitars, keyboards and harmonica. Bubba plays the bass and does some back-up singing, while V. Stak took care of all the percussion. Jon Chinn of Wall Street Rehearsal Studio in Columbus, Ohio mastered the disc.
