"Crisp, Crunchy, Cool"

The Fury's 'She Rocked Me' worth listening to

With "She Rocked Me" Mick Fury shows what he learned in the years he chased his musical muse out there in LA. The Syracuse native has returned home with the solid knowledge that his songwriting, singing, and rhythm guitar playing can rock the world.

With his band The Fury - Aaron Giffin on drums, Jeff Martina on bass and Michael Burns on lead guitar - he's put out a tasty 8 song collection that's crisp, crunchy, and cool.

It starts with 'Sunset Stripper,' opening a window into what it was like out there under the bright sun and brighter neon lights. Fury's ballads stand up too, including the slow and intense 'Ain't My Fate' as he sings, "Love is a game. I'll admit it, you outplayed me, you're so clever hun."

Acoustic guitars make a sad bed for his live confessional recorded at Highland Grounds in Hollywood, "Sadness Can't Find the Movin' Soul" as Fury sings "driving across the country runnin' away from somethin'" With his cover selection, The Fury lets the world know that they like things over on the wild side. It features a from-behind concert shot of him facing the crowd, triumphantly holding his guitar aloft. And he's buck naked." - The Syracuse Post Standard


"Mick Fury: What An Ass!"

"Local guitarist-singer Mick Fury fumed when he read The Post- Standard's Aug. 3 review of She Rocked Me, which claimed his bare backside on the cover's inlay belonged to a "hot chick." The New Times got to the bottom of the situation, however, and confirmed that the cheeky image undoubtedly belongs to Fury.

Fury's previous bout with the local press came about during his June 2 comments after the Syracuse Area Music Awards; after losing the Best Rock Recording honor to Muzzlestamp, he was quoted in The New Times' June 7 Sammys coverage as saying, "Muzzlestamp is horrible." Devotees of the band rallied and posted their own insults about Fury on Syracuse-specific sites. Fury's still taking the backlash in stride while promoting both his new eight-song independent album She Rocked Me and his adherence to the rock'n'roll lifestyle, which he practices on a daily basis. Between sips of vodka tonic at Coleman's, 100 S. Lowell Ave., Fury insisted that he show his bare buns to confirm the cover shot's authenticity. After the mooning, Fury proclaimed, "I need to live in the rock n' roll zoo, I'm an animal...." - Syracuse New Times

Bio

Out of the snows of Syracuse, New York Mick Fury rose to form The Fury. Raw, rough, and rowdy, this outifit’s sound has been known to knock girls’ clothes off.

Rebellious

Go against the norm. Blaze your own path. Look life in the face and yell, “Fuck you.” Somebody’s gotta do it, and right now it’s The Fury. While G-funk was breaking symbols in Syracuse, Mick burned his way out to Hollywood. There he played with the likes of The Fresh and other mad-minded rockers, filling bars like “The Joint” and “The Rainbow Room” as the Mick Fury Band. After 2 years of lonesome nights with his guitar, edgy songwriting, muggings by crazy homeless ladies and alcoholic blackouts, Mick had drank down and pissed out all LA had to offer. He slowly ground out the miles back to the 'Cuse, hungry for a fresh start.

Rock

Put your mouth on the tap and drink some beer. Stay out all night and yell and scream and make out. That passion for life, that passion for art, that’s what fuels The Fury. When Mick got back New York, G-funk was ready to roll. Within a few months they were SAMMY nominated (Syracuse Area Grammy) for best rock album of the year for their EP “Ain’t My Fate.” Their NeoClassic Rock n’Roll was turning some heads and dropping some pants.

Reborn

People still want to feel, they still want to care. Nobody cares as much as The Fury does about getting chicks to dance on their strip pole when they play live. Nobody cares as much about making music that moves people, music that forces emotions to come spewing out while they play. You can’t watch The Fury and not feel something, because if you don’t Mick will come into the audience and grab you around the throat until you do. Better yet, pop in their new full length album “She Rocked Me” and you’ll feel him erupt about how SHE wasn’t his Fate, that dirty Sunset Stripper. Love still has the power to inspire, and that inspiration drives The Fury to say that “She Rocked Me” sounds like, “Two Girls Having Sex on a Rocket.” Agreed.
