"Mystery Hangup EP Review by Music Connection Magazine"

"There's a barely controlled chaos at work here that is exciting. The galloping pace is set by Lux's unique, off-kilter, Keith Moon inspired drumming. Above all, it is Cat's husky vocal presence that weighs heavily, injecting plenty of passion and expression to keep listeners interested. Epitaph Records should give this Hangup a call-back." - Music Connection, October '06 -

Creating a magical rip roaring journey that resonates deep within their audience, Mystery Hangup is an all female Indie/experimental rock band from Orange County, CA. Introducing to you 3 sisters that took a 3 year trip through winding corridors of a Latin Music school emerging with a strong sense of identity with their Mexican roots; Cat, lux, and Bisou. After performing Latin Music for 3 years at large events, their world soon turned inside out when they heard The Cranberries. Immediately Cat began writing Rock songs in English and her sisters soon followed. Bisou wrapped the songs in cloaks of jagged guitar riffs, keyboards, and noise, while youngest sister lux, a confident devotee of heavy metal, propelled the band forward with massive, hard hitting drumming. Redd, bassist, added that extra special spine tapping flavor and Mystery Hangup was complete!

Mystery Hangup has performed at many Music Festivals and Events such as: The 2006 VANS WARPED TOUR, THE 2006 SUMMER STRUMMER FESTIVAL with: The Donnas, Kinky, and Rooney, sharing the main stage at The San Francisco Pride Festival with Third Eye Blind, and recently opened for the leading band in the emergence of Death Rock in the United States, Christian Death. They were nominated for best Punk Band at last years Orange County Music Awards, have been featured on San Diego’s Music television Program “Fox Rox” for winning 1st place at the San Diego County Fair Battle of the Bands, and were also featured in the The Rockit Magazine for making “…the biggest impact on the crowd amongst the opening bands” when they opened for Christian Death.
