Please allow me to introduce to you from the gutters of Sunset Strip and Hollywood a 5 piece who eat, breathe, and sleep sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll and rebellion known as the Middle Finger Mob. We have been doing Fresh Blood here at Hard Rock Hideout since January and MFM is easily one of the best bands we’ve previewed so far. Imagine if Lemmy (Motorhead) and Mike Ness (Social Distortion) formed a gutter/sleaze rock band with catchy songs and riffs, memorable hooks and fast melodic stylish solo’s and maybe you will get the picture of where MFM is coming from.
Made up of Freekshow (vocals), Shawn Smash (guitars and vocals), D.J. Cruise (bass), Danny “Boy” Virus (drums) and Lenka Danger (background vocals) MFM has been together less than a year and already established quite a following not only in L.A. but nationwide. On their debut album “Songs of Life, Sex, & Death” MFM share their experiences of life in not so glamorous Hollywood with songs like “Doing Time”, “Love Song”, “Save A Place In Heaven” written for Traci Michaels of Peppermint Creeps who passed away late last year, “I Don’t Miss You”, & “Rock ‘N Roll Outlaw”, just to name a few. With Freekshow and Shawn trading and sharing vocals while D.J. and Danny Boy lock in perfectly along side each other and beat you utterly senseless on bass and drums respectively any fan of great hard rock would be in heaven but when you add the glue that holds everything together with Lenka’s background vocals MFM reaches damn near perfection.
You can check out Middle Finger Mob at www.myspace.com/middlefingermobband and middlefingermob.webs.com/home.htm where you can order “Songs of Life, Sex, & Death” for a mere $6.00.
