The best kept secret in music


"John's Hopkins News Letter"

Recher Theater with Bosstones 9/20/02
"I had time for little more than a quick glance around before Monty's Fan Club
came on. This sextet from Providence, R.I. played mostly energetic punk punctuated with a slick horn section and a few ska numbers. This group seemed determined to win the crowd, pulling stunts like having the trumpeter spinning his instrument around with a lit sparkler in the bell. They broke through the self consciousness of the crowd very early on; people were dancing and yelling by the time they got to a cover of Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer" toward the
end of their set. Indeed, they set a challenge for the next band, Avoid One Thing, to follow." ... "As I said before, the emphasis was on energy that night, from the very first note of the opening act until I walked out of the Recher completely soaked in sweat, but with a smile on my face." - Matt Thornburg

"The Local Mix ("

Then a band like Monty's Fan Club comes along and knocks you on your bored
butt, from trumpet to drums, this ecletic group (composed of six Cranston natives-
Ryan, Justin, Steve, the Infamous, Nick, and Mike ) delivers something that the
rock scene needs right now- bold music that's not afraid to go against current
trends of whining about how cruel the world is. Try and describe them in word and
you may find yourself hard-pressed.
Their first album was released in 1999. "Thanks for the Metal Sign" is a
sizzling mix of emotion and musicianship, applying healthy doses of reggae,
punk, and metal to well-delivered vocals. "TKO", an instrumental, showcases
their musical potential with an up-and-down rollercoaster of instrumental
experimentation, full with some particularly Slovak-esque guitar riffs on lead
vocalist and guitarist Steve Aiello’s part. Another track, "Arcadia" is the
perfect example of what all solid punk should be- both driving and rhythmic at
the same time.
MFC is currently at work on their second album. One song in particular, “Hearts
Bleeding”, has the band particularly happy with their current musical
directions. But we will all have to wait to hear this new one…

"Next was Monty's Fan Club, whom I never heard of before. They got everyone into
it. High energy punk rock, better than most bands that do it. Much better.

"Finally, the band everyone came to see…Monty’s Fan Club came on last. I have to say that they motivated some extreme moshing (in me), even more than when I saw Catch-22. I left the show satisfied, amazingly tired, extremely sweaty, and thirsty.  Even as I type this review, I?m still very sore. "
