"Slippery When Wet"

Rock N' Roll - not to be confused with Rock alone - is about being young, loud, rowdy, and hip-shakingly lustful. And it's about dancing. While it's shot in any number of directions since Alan Freed gave America's signature sound a proper moniker, Rock N' Roll has never lost the youthful spirit that defines it. Every now and again, you hear a new song or a new band that reminds you (even if you were never there in the first place) of that first era of such innocent rebellion, the American Bandstand age of cute pop-disobedience. Mind Fish inspired that for me.
I've found its recorded works - available on the band's MySpace page - so endearingly honest and raw in the most sincere and gentle way. A few days after the first listen, a little piece of a song will drift up in the back of your mind and you'll find yourself humming a wildly catchy hook that you can't quite place. That's when you'll know you've hooked the Mind Fish. Or, at least, that it's hooked you.
Formerly of Toledo, now base out of Athens, Ohio, Mind Fish is a fun-loving twosome (a trio live) who knows how to compose simple, yet dynamic songs that cause both rocking good times and heartfelt reflection. Songs like "Monkey See (Monkey Don't Even Know)" call to mind influences from Detroit neighbors The Hard Lessons, while "You Beautiful You" arouses a comparison to a much more innocent and less disastrously conflicted Pinkerton-era Rivers Cuomo. At other times, the better elements of Plain White T's, and Michigan's long-defunct Pinpoint: Logic seep through. - Toledo.com
