Those colorful cartoon cuties of sugar-coated cheezy pop-confections, MUDPIE, have returned with new music, previously unreleased tracks from their archives and the long awaited digital re-release of their catalog favorites.
Formed in Los Angeles in 1990, MUDPIE had a vision to put the silliness back in bubble-gum pop. Bringing smiles and giggles and toe-tapping goodness to local venues, the band went on to perform for unsuspecting audiences across America. Their independent debut, The Brown Album, featured their early fan-favorites, including the radio single “The Fish Song,” featured regularly on the Dr. Demento radio show. Their 1995 analog magnum opus, Self-Congratulatory and Frolicking in the Rain, quickly achieved indie pop cult-classic status.
In 1995, MUDPIE were tapped to compose the score for the motion picture parody XX-Men. More recently Vocalist, Joe “Mama” Carona has been heard as the on-air host and engineer for the popular Pure Rock online Used Bin Radio show. Guitarist, Sean Tauzier’s recent Producer and Engineer credits include releases from Allen Toussaint, the New Orleans Rhythm Makers and New Birth Brass Band. Now,MUDPIE return with X-Trax, a collection of brand new songs, with previously unreleased tracks. And for the first time ever... it’s digital. Enjoy!
