Monnone Alone - Summer Of The Mosquito (Vinyl)
Mark Monnone has assembled a squadron of noisy janglemeisters to help create this album - his former Lucksmiths bandmate Louis Richter’s joyous and dynamic 12-string guitar serves as the perfect foil to Monnone’s unfussy strum and unruly outbursts of fuzz, while Gus Franklin (Smallgoods, Architecture in Helsinki) and Joe Foley (Sparkly Bear, Aleks & the Ramps), on drums and bass respectively, are having a rollicking good choogle but manage to stay the course when things get bumpy.
Summer of the Mosquito is a sweet ‘n’ salty twilit bike ride through the dizzying heights and gutter-scouring lows of summers past; a revisiting of share-house dysfunction and coming-of-age misdemeanours, while encouraging a celebration of such foibles in the album’s jubilant closer and second single ‘Do it Twice’.
