Connan and the Mockasins- Uuu It's Teasy

From one of the most exciting live acts on the New Zealand scene today, we now have a new EP. Connan and the Mockasins bring us Uuu It's Teasy , a fine mix of bluesy psychedelic rock that will shake your pants off. It’s no secret these guys are one of my personal favourite bands, but putting any bias aside, I can honestly say the EP accompanies their live show perfectly.
Containing six tracks, the mini album starts with a straight out blues number ‘I Nude You’, a comical love song ended by a brilliant two minute guitar solo. The two radio hits follow, ‘Sneaky Sneaky Dog Friend’ and ‘Naughty Holidays’, both are heavily influenced by Village Green period Kinks. The songs are live favourites and the local crowd often sings along while Connan wanders off on a ferocious guitar solo. Title track ‘Uuu It’s Teasy’ with its haunting shoeshoecome and shoeshoego displays the bands experimental creativity, before sliding into the nine minute ‘Hey Chocolate’. ‘Hello View’ rounds off what is one the most anticipated New Zealand releases of 2006. Now living in London, let’s hope we hear more from Connan and the Mockasins, hopefully a record deal looms.
