"Delightfully Weird"

By Matt Staute

When listening to Colin McKay (along with his band, the Cosmic Sensations), one can hear numerous influences, which when fused together, combine for a unique sound that is very much McKay’s own. “Love for Sale” is quirky and brings to mind Marshall Crenshaw and Nick Lowe. Subdued guitar and temperate piano compliment this catchy little number that sounds like it would be right at home on the radio. ”Don’t Do Mornings” could be a complex Zappa song minus the needless vulgarities which encumbered much of the farmer’s work. ”Laughing Gas” resembles “Talking Heads meets The Hollies” ditty with some great guitar work by Tommy Osuna.

To see a show by Colin McKay must be very interesting indeed (judging by his set list) which includes such diverse songs as “Sweet Dreams” (Eurhythmics), “Stray Cat Strut (Stray Cats), “Three Little Birds” (Bob Marley, “Cheap Sunglasses” (ZZ Top), and …”Froggy-went-A-courtin’?”

Hmmm. Sounds like some unsuspecting audience is in for a delightfully weird evening! - Northeast In-Tune Magazine
