Inspired by the proto-punk of The Stooges and the neo-Delta blues of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Modey Lemon cut its chops on summer evenings in Pittsburgh's Strip District, playing largely improvised blues in front of a closed-for-the-night fruit stand. Over the course of the following year, the increasingly tight band honed its sound, emphasizing a sped-up Keith Moon-style approach to the drums, muddy guitar, and a maniacal vocal delivery supplanted by bursts of Moog and harmonica. The trio's latest LP "Season of Sweets" is a fuzzed-out burner of an album that adds some new melodic turns to the group's noisy, percussion-driven jams.
