Review: Mondo Topless

Mondo Topless
“Go Fast!”
(Get Hip)

Part of the charm of vintage, ’60s psych-rock is the primal, visceral energy channeled through the keyhole of the day’s available analog technology. The trend in the garage rock revival is to amp it up, recording in the style of the teen rock of yesteryear in modern studios. The Vox-powered quartet Mondo Topless becomes a time capsule by offering a thin, trebly recording of ripping rock on Go Fast! The 15 excellent songs of unleashed throwback rock culminated in a rendition of The Stooges’ “No Fun”.
