When you’ve been in the game as long as Mark Ryan has, you can pretty much do whatever you want. As one of the founding members of influential garage punk band The Marked Men, a major creative force in the similar but darker group Radioactivity, and many other projects, he has definitely become a master of creating memorable and ridiculously catchy lo-fi punk tunes. And he has no plans on slowing down. With Prosthesis, Ryan’s constantly evolving “solo” project Mind Spiders returns for their 4th album of synth heavy garage punk.
The boys from The Marked Men seem to be getting darker and darker with each new album they put out, no matter the group. Last years’ Silent Kill from Radioactivity was the perfect blend of poppy melodies and dark atmosphere all wrapped up in their signature garage sound. But that album still had its brighter songs. Prosthesis takes the next step, with the whole album giving off a gloomy vibe from start to finish. The synths and guitar play off each other with minor and dissonant chord passages that create a sense of unease. The band is still able to pull the songs together and come out with something catchy and memorable.
Synthesizer is featured very prominently on the album. In some songs, it is the driving force, while in others, it serves just to create a bit more atmosphere. Songs like “No Filter” and “Prosthesis” use the synths to lay out the main melodies of the song, while the guitar backs them up and drums keep the song moving along. “Running” on the other hand features very little, if any, synth and relies on the guitar strumming away at power chords and haunting vocals to create what is probably the catchiest song on the album. “Cold” uses a similar outline but has great moments in the verses when the guitar cuts out and the synth comes in to accentuate the tone of the song.
The synth heavy nature of the album might turn some people off. Some of the songs might come off as cheesy to some, like the robotic beeps and boops of “Split in Two.” But underneath it all, this is most definitely a Mark Ryan album, and fans will know what they are going to get: a strong songwriting foundation with familiar garage punk staples and some not so familiar changes and experimentation that prove that Mind Spiders are at the top of their game.

This past St. Patrick’s Day I woke up with images of green beer and boiled meats that would be in my near future. The day had finally arrived where we are all just a little bit Irish, and for some reason we choose to celebrate in sometimes the worst fashion. Not this year though, as DNA Lounge was hosting a killer night of punk rock in their intimate, upstairs venue.
Up first to the stage was The Dialetics who hail from Santa Rosa and have a classic punk rock sound with a touch of DEVO and surf. The band recently released their newest album “Through The Wall” last week and pretty much covered the entire EP during their set. You can have a listen here.
Civil War Rust is one of those bands one their way to become a household name. These guys are relentlessly touring, and drawing bigger crowds at each show. It’s gritty, it’s melodic, it’ll make you get off your seat and dance around. Hell, you can even join the band on stage if you know the words. The band’s latest release, “Help Wanted” came out this past November.
I thought I had seen Tartar Control before, but I guess I was wrong because the set that fans were treated to was something I had never witnessed before, and which you could never forget. The band consists of two Mormon missionaries and a robot who supplies the beat as well as some witty comments. Vocalist Robert Selander is all over the place – at times calm and seated as if at church, while the next moment he’s doing handstands and running around the crowd, sticking his fingers in people’s mouths checking if they’ve recently brushed their teeth. Their name is, by the way, Tartar Control. I think the photos of these guys paint the picture fairly accurately.
Headliners for the night were Druglords of The Avenues, which features Swingin’ Utters vocalist Johnny Peebucks as frontman. If you’ve ever seen an Utters show, Peebucks is on point as always, with erratic kicks and fists in the air. This is clearly “a venture apart from its more famous Swingin’ counterpart, rather than an extension or a redundancy of it”, but there’s always that built-in fanbase, and with the same singer you’ll always hear a little something of the familiar.
Have a look at all the photos from the night’s performances below.
As always, big thanks to Barry for being so rad and having one of the best venues in the city.
