"Great CD! Keep up the good work!" --Ray Manzarek of The Doors - Ray Manzarek of The Doors


"Jim Morrison, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Beck, Kula Shaker, The Beatles, David Byrne, The Moody Blues, Nick Cave, Beastie Boys. No, I'm not making a laundry list of my favorite artists. I'm listing the myriad of musical influences that prominently inform the work of Los Angeles based ANDY McCUTCHEON. Since his early teens, McCutcheon has recorded original music steeped in existential poetry and eclectic psychedelic shadings. His debut, Out of the Lion's Mouth, captures the mystical essence of Jim Morrison's darkest epic poems and melds them with funk-rhythm tracks to make them almost danceable. His follow-up, Welcome to Periphery, takes this... further and ventures off into a Bowiesque/Moody Bluesy aural tapestry. "Never Break a Psycho's Heart" is funny and perceptive in its twisted frankness, but it's his meandering poetry and unabashed willingness to be off-kilter, kitschy and keen (on insight) that makes his literary music such a pleasure. Different, but Familiar, ANDY McCUTCHEON is corny with class. An interesting combination."
- --Roxanne of Extreme Magazine


"McCutcheon's gift for melodic hooks and his uncanny ability to emulate classic rock heroes (early David Bowie, Marc Bolan, Lou Reed, Ian Hunter & The Doors) adds up to a collection of original glam-edelic tunes!"

- --Music Connection

Bio

With bristling cynicism, surrealistic word-play, and a decidedly post-modern veneer couched in eclectic song arrangements, Andy McCutcheon tears through rock’s back pages to create a distinctive impression that is reflective, stylish, twisted, and captivating.

From the freewheeling jangle-pop of “Hello,” to the neo-psychedelic rumblings oozing from “I’m Alive Now,” to the angular lounge lizard musings embedded in “Twisting And Reeling,” Andy McCutcheon exudes irony and passion.

Akin to the artistry of Elvis Costello, XTC, Phantom Planet, Robyn Hitchcock, Lloyd Cole, Syd Barrett, and Brian Wilson, McCutcheon tantalizes the senses with an array of emotional depth, a whirlpool mixture of instrumental textures, and astute observations of the human condition molded into splashing pop melodies.
