Music Connection Magazine - July 2004 – Dolan / Berttelli

These rockers play youthful and energetic skater-punk, reminiscent of mid-Nineties bands such as Less Than Jake, the Vandals, Homegrown and Face to Face. Their newest album, Straight on till Morning, would be the perfect soundtrack for any skate or snowboard video. In fact, it would not be surprising to hear this act featured in the next American Pie movie.

Musicianship: These guys are different from other pop and emo bands that merely play simple power chords. Michael Lozano weaves skillful guitar leads with Victor Campos’ heavy rhythms and brother Frankie Lozano’s driving bass lines. Upon listening, without even knowing their names, it’s obvious that Mullet is a band made mostly of brothers. Their familiarity helps them present a tight live show that almost sounds recorded. Drummer Adam Lozano sets up the rhythm and vibe with a dynamic performance.

Performance: The high energy of Mullet’s show was enhanced by the band’s stage theatrics. Despite a broken ankle, Michael Lozano rocked out onstage more audaciously than most frontmen can. His performance was just shy of circus contortionism. While seated in a wheeled office chair with his ankle propped up, he shredded on a guitar he held behind his head. Mullet projected its abundant enthusiasm with infectious excitement.

Skinnie Magazine - 5 STARS – Jimmy Clinton - Jan 2004

I haven't heard "happy" punk rock this good since
back in my glory days when I used to go see the
Vandals, Assorted Jelly Beans, and Homegrown at
the Barn in Riverside. The opening guitar riffs in
‘No Bueno’ made me want to dance..." 5 stars

...I liked it a lot. Other than giving them an A in
the originality department, I'd also like to congratulate
them in their songwriting abilities....

Skinnie Magazine – Jimmy Clinton

The first annual Rawksgiving benefit concert
at the Showcase Theater in Corona
was a multifaceted success organized by
Frank Lozano, father to members of the
local band Mullet. The show featured the
bands All In All, Stalking Roxy, Elseworth,
Aurees and of course, Mullet and raised
both cans of food as well as awareness of
the Second Harvest Food Bank. Fans
showed the true Christmas spirit by loading
up five large containers with canned
food items. “I feel we did make a dent in
[raising] awareness of the potential synergetic
powers of local bands and local
businesses,” said Lozano. With donations
from generous sponsors which included
Infinity Music Instrument Company,
BC&A Property Management, LBEI
Electrical Contracting, Tom’s Farms, Goat
Eyewear, Kiko Productions, Sounds
Like…, Pharaoh’s Lost Kingdom, Photo by
Pharley, Inland Empire Medical Imaging,
and Backwoods Bar B Q., Lozano got a
chance to play Santa by giving away an
extraordinary amount of raffle prizes. Tshirts,
stickers, skateboards, along with
C.D.s, gift certificates, and even a
Marshall acoustic/electric guitar were in
his bag that night, and it seems that no
one left empty handed. “The bottom line
is I hope this will fuel the fire for others to
want to be part of the 2nd annual, and
the third, fourth…”
