ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons sing funny, catchy songs over a relentless rhythm section, powerful guitar lines, and simple keytar riffs. It's art-rock without pretension, twee-core without sentimentality, punk rock without pants. Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons' live show is littered with homemade props, hand-sewn costumes, and a confrontational mania that invariably elicits dancing, laughter, or at least slack-jawed bewilderment.

Formed in 2003, Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons have played extensively in the Midwest and have embarked on two East Coast rours, with a trip to the west coast planned for August 2007. They have just released their second CD on Crustacean Records, Screamin' Target Heart Rate, the follow-up to their self-released debut Babysit. Their sound is dance rock in the vein of the B-52's mixed with DIY-hardcore sensibilities. With song topics ranging from sexually charged slumber parties to passive/aggressive cowboys to the biological clocks of Margarita-addled secretaries, Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons' lyrics run the gamut from snotty and sarcastic to plaintive and desperate.

Give them your panties. Give them your dreams. Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons will give you boners that will rip your seams.

Razorcake Magazine

review from Razorcake
"Whoa. This album blew me away. Looking at the band’s name and the cover art I thought it might be some overly ironic hipster garbage. But no! This is actually a collection of hilarious, clever, pop punk songs (and lots of them! Twenty tracks!) performed with an almost alarming amount of energy and skill. My favorite track on the whole thing is the pro-dance, anti-standing-around anthem “Rock Your Body,” which includes the line “Get on the floor/ turn off the emo-core.” If my aerobics teacher had taste, this is what she would play during class."--Jennifer Whiteford, Razorcake Magazine #39

Music Zine

music zine review
Screamin’ Cyn Cyn and the Pons est une formation issue de Madison, dans le Wisconsin. Un quatuor excentrique voire humoristique responsable d’un mélange de punk et de power pop. Une caractéristique originale : la présence d’un ‘keytar’ (NDLR : Le keytar est un synthétiseur, claviers midi dans la pluparts des cas, se portant comme une guitare). La voix du chanteur semble calquée sur celle de Serj Tankian (System of a Down), mais en moins lyrique. Dans cet état du nord des States, l’hiver est plutôt froid. Alors, quand on se les gèle, il est préférable de se remonter le moral en rigolant. Pour prendre du bon temps et surtout rigoler, nos quatre lascars savent s’y prendre. Et autant ne pas aborder la vie avec trop de sérieux. Même pour enregistrer un elpee. Les lyrics de « Screamin’ target heart rate » sont souvent ironiques et abordent des thèmes aussi divers que le sexe, la bière et les plats préparés à base de petits pois carottes. Bref, de quoi faire la fête.

Sceamin’ Cyn Cyn and the Pons relève du label Crustacean Records, une écurie qui fait la part belle aux ensembles punk/rock. L’énergie dispensée par les drums, la ‘keytar’ bien présente et remise au goût du jour ainsi que les cris stridents vociférés par Cynthia Burnson (elle se consacre également à la guitare) entretiennent la constance de ce dynamisme survitaminé. La gueule de bois au réveil ? Une bonne dose et vous devriez retrouver vos esprits ; à moins qu’elle ne soit un peu trop speed… Pas de sujet digne de réflexion, peu de structure ni de recherche sur cet opus, mais vingt titres de la même trempe, parcourus de breaks presque identiques. De quoi laisser parfois perplexe. Mais bon, quand on est bourré, l’insouciance est à son comble et on ne craint plus qu’une seule chose : renverser sa bière. Santé !

review from Big Takeover Magazine #61
”If you’ve heard this Madison, WI foursome’s debut, Babysit, or seen their silly but amusing video for “Transportation” on YouTube, you’ll know what you’re in for on this sophomore (or sophomoric?) effort. Led by manic, flamboyant, and uncouth Shane O’Neil, and his equally nutty and brassy counterpart Cynthia Burnson (whose penchant for yelling has earned her her nickname), their ultra-catchy, relentless, madcap pogo-rock is like a blend of B-52’s, Dickies, Rezillos and Dead Milkmen. Many of their bawdy songs sound like the rantings of juvenile, sex-crazed teens, also waxing poetic on vital topics such as slumber parties, workplace rituals, proper table settings, garbage day, weekend cruising and of course, getting drunk. The don’t take themselves seriously, and won’t inspire deep thinking. But they’re fun, infectious, and they really rock.”--Mark Suppanz, The Big Takeover Magazine #61
