Smash Mouth is not just another of those predictable third-wave ska bands that appear and disappear faster than one can say The Specials. Don't worry skankers, FUSH YU MANG provides enough horns-and-guitar ska rhythms to keep you bobbing your head indefinitely. Smash Mouth adds some nice touches to their ska-based sound by fusing it with 1950's science-fiction-movie sound effects, Beach Boys-like background vocals, and Cuban folk rhythms. Smash Mouth isn't afraid of hitting the distortion pedal for some delicious guitar licks. Be careful kids: FUSH YU MANG may have you skanking so hard that you'll injure a vital organ.
What the critics say...
Rolling Stone (12/25/97, pp.164-166) - "...a band that has both Black Flag and Maqdness on the brain. Smash Mouth don't beat around the bush...and rarely stray far from ska-thrash basics. But they could be onto something with the bubblegum funk of `Walkin' on the Sun.'..."
