Album Notes

Release Date - 2005

"A waft of dejavu hovers after spinning Mingo Fishtrap's new platter. Songs hit right from the get-go, like a friend of a friend you immediately dig after meeting. It's clear this funky Austin octet has a deep affinity for the title's alluded-to musical greats - Stevie Wonder, Tower of Power, Rejuvenation-era Meters. Yet this well-crafted album ain't about naked derivation: the 15 original tracks are as fresh as new car smell. The fourth release and second full-length of these Austin Music Award winners, Yesterday is a refinement of form and not a new stylistic direction. Wise choice, as their gumbo of tight 'n' punchy horns, deep rhythms, restless melodies, and emotive singing has garnered Mingo justified respect as a live powerhouse."

Best drumming ever
You might think this is just a great poppy-funk album, but there's so much more. Listen closely, and you'll have to admit that this is the greatest drumming you've ever heard in your life!!!!


Get this CD!
The tracks on Mingo Fishtrap's latest album "Yesterday" constitute an impressive array of solid musical offerings. While each song is unique in its own right, the group's intuitive rhythmic sense propels each one forward through consistently danceable grooves. The harmonic shifts between song sections are easily manipulated by some of the most fantastic musicians I've heard in a good while, and the horns are not at all misused. They play an integral part of each song and give the entire album that great sound unique to Mingo Fishtrap. Get this CD! NOW!

Love it...Butts blows on this one

Hey Guys,
Your CD (Yesterday) is awesome. It's great to know there is a fellow "REAL MUSICIAN" from Aiken who's mentor is also mine. He's actually my musical Dad -so to speak. (Jim Kitchings)- I grew up with David and Duane.(Men of Distinction) Greg, you're awesome on BARI !!! (You sound a lot like Bruce Johnston during the 70's,but with a cleaner tone.)
I'm a band director in Knoxville,TN.(Trumpet) You all are the best thing since Tower of Power I've heard. I'll have to be careful- Mick Gillette might get on to me for saying that, although I have'nt seen him in a few years since I played a few gigs with him.
Anyway, keep up the great songwriting and performances. Ya'll are the BOMB!
Wish you could come to Knoxville or somewhere in Tennessee. I would definately come see you guys. R.B. Jr., your vocal and writing skills are superb. Guitar and keyboards are always complimentary.
Bass & kickdrum are together-always in sync. Horns play really tight together and every note seems to be in tune, unlike other bands I've heard that are not
altogether in tune on every note.
I also received my CD very quickly and in perfect shape.
Ya'll keep up the great work, and I look forward to ordering another CD from you.
Take care,
Ron Osbon, ***** Knoxville, TN *******


I LOVE IT...I LOVE IT....I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

This CD has some real soul and loads of class! I was especially impressed by the deep R&B ballads -- truly "mood" music, if you know what I mean! "Yesterday" is a great road trip CD as well and the funky music will keep you dancing all the way home! Couple it with "From The Private Bag" and you're set for a fabulous ride. Thanks again, guys!


Absolutely Awesome!
This CD kicks! The horns, the vocals, the tightness of the group are unbelievable! CD Baby, keep 'em coming!


I was at Threadgill's for a girls night out with 5 of my friends(the night of the wasp sting-poor guy). But the performance was really wonderful and we had a blast. I love their sound, and bought the new cd. Hope to hear them again live soon!

anna r.
