TWO SAINTS
The Midway, Jamaica Plain, MA
12/31/07
Despite the sidesplitting antics of a dark haired young man who is very excited about chicken fingers, a same sex version of Popeye and Olive Oyl, and a Louise Brooks clone that couldn't keep her hands out of her "Pandora's Box," Two Saints have the power and the attitude to take control of the crowd. These guys are a no-bullshit, hard rock outfit in the vein of pub rock greats like AC/DC. There is Joe Mazzari (guitar, vocals) who is internationally known as a member of The Daughters who backed up Johnny Thunders in the '80s. Marky Mussel has an impressive history with Marky Mussel & The Clams, The Varmints, The Fugitives, and American Pulverizer. The rhythm section of Pat Moynihan on bass and Will Wrenn on drums proceed to rock our faces off. We are treated to classic singles like "Tequila 213" which immediately brings to mind the killer riff in the Nervous Eaters' "She's Gonna Be My Baby" and the equally pulverizing "Lost At Sea." Other highlights are "Stand Up" and "747" and Eaters covers— "Degenerate" and "Just Head," the latter which they make their own. Mazzari and Mussel both have immense presence. Mazzari's moves are energized and natural, truly punctuating the music. Mussel's vocals are raw and pure punk. Maybe it's having a band blastin' with a backline of vintage Marshalls, but the Midway is sounding better than I remember. (Nancy Neon) - The Noise

Bio

Two Saints was originally formed back in the mid to late 80's by guitarists Joe Mazzari & Marky Mussel. Joe had wrapped up a stint with Johnny Thunders having played on the Diary of a Lover and In Cold Blood LP's as well as logging a few tours. Marky had played in several popular Boston bands such as Marky Mussel & The Clams, The Varmints & Fugitives and was working with a trio when he'd met Joe and suggested he join. The new band now dubbed Two Saints set off full speed into the scene, tearing up the East coast, releasing 2 very well received albums and 3, 7 inch singles. They made several well received trips to the UK before calling it a day in the early 90's. Members came and went but the heart and soul of this outfit has always been Marky & Joe. The 2 friends paths would cross many times over the years and in early 2007, Joe & Marky decided to reform Two Saints. Though now older, the years have not dulled the pairs intensity, only sharpened it to a razors edge. Propelled by the rhythm section of Pat Moynihan on bass and Will Wrenn on drums, Two Saints has come back with both barrels blazing!!!
