Carbon Copycats are Micky Mercurio and his band. For this recording, Micky (vocals, guitar) played with Mary Fridmann (bass, vocals), Dave Fridmann (drums) and Bill Racine (guitar) at Tarbox Road Studios and BJs Fredonia, NY. All songs by Micky Mercurio except #1, 9 Dylan, #15 Cash, #3, 12 w/ Joe. SYRACUSE PAPER Buzzkillers deliver rough, tough psychedelic rock: Micky Mercurio keeps very good psychedelic rock company. As he says on this neat Little Rock CD's inside cover, 'MIcky Mercurio, Mary Fridmann, Dave Fridmann with Bill Racine are Captain Bringdown and the Buzzkillers.' Fans of Mercury Rev and Flaming Lips take note: Yes, your Dave Fridmann produced this 15-song collection recorded at Tarbox Road Studios and live at BJs in Fredonia. The music carried a heady buzz, psychedelic rock like it oughta be, rough, tough and tumbling out of speakers and right into your gut. Mercurio's voice and guitar work dodge, weave and surf with the guitar of Racine, vocals of Mary Fridmann and drums of Dave Fridmann. MIcky and Mary's duet spices the tasty, tingly rock in' Other Side of Nowhere' at the start of the CD. From there it's a mosaic of emotions. The acoustic guitar and sentiment of 'Gone This Time' go to the heart as Micky sings, Now I can't remember what we were fighting about,... I know you said you're gone but you'll be back in a while. ... this is the longest you've been away, now I'm drinking night and day.' -Mark Bialczak 5/24/09.
