ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE SPONGETONES “Scrambled Eggs”

Ever since those mop topped British combos washed up on these shores in the early sixties, countless musicians have attempted to resurrect the excitement and sense of melody penetrating their snappy sentiments. Formed in 1978, The Spongetones are surely one of the best of the bunch. Although the North Carolina band has frequently flirted with other sounds and styles, they’ve never deserted their roots. Here on their latest album, “Scrambled Eggs,” The Spongetones channel the soul of John, Paul, George and Ringo (not to exclude occasional nods to The Searchers, The Dave Clark Five and The Hollies) with the same enthusiasm and expertise they’ve executed for years. Aside from the bluesy blast of the “Oh! Darling” influenced “Tough Love” and the rockabilly bop of “Propeller Flights,” the disc twinkles with pure pop action. Potent hooks as contagious as the chicken pox collide with jingly guitars and picture perfect choruses. “Talking Around It,” “All The Loving,” “It Can’t Go On Forever” and “Too Unlikely Two” are particular sparkling jewels found on “Scrambled Eggs.” Culling inspiration from “Something New” and “Beatles VI,” comparisons to the boys from Liverpool can’t be avoided. But The Spongetones are a clever and crafty lot, as they write their own songs that firmly stress their own creativity and originality. Ounce for ounce, cut for cut, “Scramble Eggs” is tasty and satisfying!

Another Spongetones Instant Classic
Well, here I go again; singing the praises of yet another incredible effort by The Spongetones. After "Too Clever By Half", an album that still leaves me astounded after each listen, I wondered what in the world these guys could possibly do next. Their response: "Scrambled Eggs", an album of thirteen superb songs spanning a wide variety of musical styles. Of course, there are tracks filled with jangly guitars and wonderful vocals and harmonies that conjure up visions of The Beatles. Just listen to "All the Loving" and "She'll Be Gone". But have a listen to "Tough Love", a rough and ready blues number with supercharged lead vocals and blistering guitar, and you'll be fairly well stunned. Every song is an absolute gem: spin "Too Unlikely Two", "Where You Gonna Go", "Talking Around It", "Karma Depleted", and "Lost Weekend" a few times, and you'll understand. Music like this is so hard to find these days, but you won't have to look any further than "Scrambled Eggs" to realize that The Spongetones have prepared a tasty musical feast!
