"The Bakery Perth"

Mink Mussel Creek can't seem to put a foot wrong, and they don't even look like they're trying. But, as is the nature of psychedelic rock, even if their set were a shambles, as long as they express the essence of their elevated sensory awareness, its all sweet.MMC appear to take their influences from anywhere and everywhere with one particular riff sounding uncannily - but presumably unintentionally- similar to the chorus of Cornershop's Brimful Of Asha. In any case, only this tye-dye wearing troupe of dishevelled teenagers could get away with sounding like a '90's East-West fusion pop-rock song; an apt choice considering the exotic elements of their multi-faceted interpretation of neo-psychedelia. To finish off, their eccentric prancing front man proclaimed "Mink Mussel Creek love everyone" and judging by their constant praise, it would appear the feeling's mutual.

"Next Big Thing Heat #5"

The category of originality went to Mink Mussel Creek, who quite easily stormed their way into first place. Although their were elements of the band that likened them somewhat to the Doors, Pink Floyd or a whole host of psychedelic acts of the blossoming late 60's, there was no sign of the band trying to be anyone in particular. More impressive still was the complete lack of pretentiousness with which Mink Mussel creek assumed the role of strangeness... their singer just genuinely seemed strange. Thought-provoking and unpredictable, Mink Mussel Creek were a band so good one can only hope they abandon their shithouse name, which makes them sound like some 'wacky' cover band. Othere than this completely peripheral gripe, there was nothing about the band which wasn't really impressive.That said, they will either be the kind of band you love or hate, as is the case with all great art. - Xpress Magazine

"Mojo's North fremantle"

Anytime you want to bend your mind, consider Mink Mussel Creek. Odd, sparawling songs about Zeus-knows-what flooded the venue, with only brattish vocals to remind listeners this band are probably half the age of their record collection faves. Was it good? Yes. Why? Because Mink Mussel Creek can play their instruments. In terms of stage theatrics that is pretty much all they do, besides jiggle about in their places or go for the odd wander. Slow, ethereal guitar passages with lilting vocals would suddenly cop a fuzzed out racket, each song getting wrenched up a notch. The drumming was integral to the flow of this heady blend of what one might suppose is being called post-psychedelia. - drum perth

MINK MUSSEL CREEK was born of a common love of extensive jams and blazing musical expression, which has given rise to their particular brand of music. Often nestling into a warm riff before meandering into furious, spaced-out, more abrasive sonic territory, MMC’s music defies definition. They are a 5 piece band, employing a variety of instruments to create their very own brand of psychedelic folk: uilleann pipes, bouzouki, tin whistle, flute, harmonica, glockenspiel, tambourine, bass, drums and of course guitars, guitars, guitars. MMC’s music has been likened to that of The Stooges, Jethro Tull and The Velvet Underground to name a few…
Mink Mussel Creek have already notched up some impressive achievements for a band that formed just over a year and a half ago including winning Amp Fest 2005, being runners up in the 2006 Next Big Thing competition and most recently taking out the 2007 WAMi award for Most Promising New Act (as voted by the WA music industry). They have played shows with some of our nations finest including The Mess Hall, Mach Pelican, The Grey Daturas, Hoss, The Exploders and Love Of Diagrams; and shared the stage with some of WA’s best: The Kill Devil Hills, The Fuzz, Schvendes Little Birdy, Birds of Tokyo, The Silents, Adam Said Galore and Snowman to name a few. They also travelled to Melbourne in April 2007 for a WA showcase with Capital City and The Kill Devil Hills.
MMC have recorded a split 12” single due out in December this year, followed by the release of their first ep, planned for January 2008. February will be spent recording their debut album with a planned release in April.
Mink Mussel Creek’s live shows are exciting, confusing and almost never the same from night to night.
Go and experience it for yourself, Mink Mussel Creek must be seen and heard to be believed…..
