After seeing Mad Marge and the Stonecutters live as support for the Peacocks
I finally found the time to listen to their album.
Formed in late 2004 from the baron nothingness of the High Desert of Southern
California, Mad Marge and the Stonecutters hit the scene with a huge force.
They were approached by a small record company, Baseline Music Co., that liked
what they’d heard on the bands 2005 “Stonecutters…are go!”
four song demo and wanted to help them with their first record. The self-titled
debut album, where they officially took on the name Mad Marge and the Stonecutters,
was released in February of 2006 and thanks to the growing success of that release
they were given the opportunity to play Vans Warped tour, tour the southwest
and the west coast of the U.S. as well as countries throughout Europe including
Germany where they played the biggest psychobilly festival in the world, the
The album starts out very fast and rocking, very catchy melodies and lyrics.
The song “Issues” as well as “Sickness” definitely make
you dance and sing. Really great songs. You can hear the typical sound of the
double bass. The music is typical for psychobilly, combined with a great and
powerful female singer. “Dial Z for Zombie” is another quick song,
“Walk Away” is somehow an outstanding song. It would be a nice radio
song, there’s some great singing in this song and nice melodies. “Liberation”
is a great song for live performances because of the simple chorus. A nice album,
spreading happiness and power, makes you want to jump around and sing along.
Mad Marge and the Stonecutters is not only a gorgeous live band, but also great
for the CD player.
