NEWS FLASH!! Scott Harrell, reviewer for the "Weekly Planet," says of our CD is "... mostly a joy to listen to ..." and "... the marvelous harmonies, caricatured pop hallmarks and utterly ludicrous themes are surely worth the price of admission." The entire review may be found at:
NEWS FLASH!! Steve Allat, reviewer for "The Muse's Muse," says of our "Babes Of An Alien Persuasion" CD: "Happy. Quirky. Up-beat. Positive, yet non-preachy. Yes, pop music could use some of this. And so here is Stone Marmot to deliver." The entire review may be found at:
NEWS FLASH!! Our song "Alien Concubine" is reviewed in the "Readers' Tapes" column of the January, 2004 issue of Recording magazine. Some of their comments are: "Close your eyes and imagine a marriage between the B-52s and Devo. Kinda scary, huh? Well, the folks in Stone Marmot have a cool, catchy tune here ..." and "... the lead and backing vocals are very well recorded and perfect in the mix, capturing the Fred Schneider style in all its glory ..." and "A talented bunch are the Stone Marmots ..."
This CD is the result of not watching TV for over 21 straight years.
That's right! The person who wrote all the songs on this CD hasn't had a working television in his house since January, 1982. Scary, isn't it! That could explain the somewhat retro, rather experimental feel to the music, which has been described as sounding somewhere between The Offspring, The B-52s, and They Might Be Giants. This CD is an object lesson in how warped and depraved a television-starved mind can get.
And that's not all! To make matters worse, since no self-respecting human would stoop low enough to play this stuff, he suckered four poor, innocent cartoon characters into recording his music. Cartoon characters have it tough enough as it is, with people laughing at them all the time, without having to be subjected to this! His poor, unfortunate victims, who refer to themselves collectively as Stone Marmot, are:
Sid: Keyboards, guitars, backup vocals, sappy lead vocals
Sammy: Bass, lead and backup vocals
Bruce: Percussion, backup vocals
This quartet played their little paper hearts out as the ignoble fiend who created them and their music practically produced and engineered them to death. Therefore, for the sake of the cartoons, we hope you give this CD a good listen and try to appreciate their tireless and selfless efforts.
Please! Don't let this happen to you or someone you love! Be sure you and your loved ones receive a healthy minimum dose of television each and every day.
Note: Our CD is manufactured by a very reputable manufacturer (NOT a CD-R). All the CD packages are shrink-wrapped.
