Mothers Finest - Goody 2 Shoes & The Filthy Beasts

I always think its really cool to get records from bands who got their start back in the 70s. I feel as I've been honored to join something greater than myself. Mothers Finest speak to a much more powerful reality that many of us born after the 70s never really got to experience. These guys are from a different time, and their dedication to funky rock and roll madness is the kind of thing that captures the imagination and makes guys like me tick. A refreshing blast from the past, Goody 2 Shoes & The Filthy Beasts proves that these guys still have a lot to say.

There is something truly inspiring about these tracks. They have a strong sense of groove and the way they get your body shaking is something that most music lost years ago. Yet, Mothers Finest are not afraid to pay tribute to their own roots. The album closer, an extremely tasty live medley of Illusion, Satisfaction and Born to Be Wild brings the entire thing to an exciting conclusion. As the bands dynamic frontwoman Joyce "Babyjean" Kennedy roars you get a sense for the primal power of this group. Here are some incredibly gifted musicians who helped forge a genre and now, five decades into their career, they still kick ass. 

Ultimately, I don't have much more to say, other than that Mothers Finest have instantly won my respect and make me want to dig into their discography. If a band is able to stick around for this long then obviously they are doing something right! Fun and high energy music to fuel any sort of social shindig, Goody 2 Shoes & The Filthy Beasts is far too much fun to listen too and its fusion of 70s rock with funk and touches of pop from other eras is incredibly exciting. Let the music wash over you and dive in, this is true rock 'n' roll.
