Maniacal Mondays: Gomez
Gomez, this week's featured artist for Maniacal Mondays, are a UK band that have been around since 1998, when they released their debut 'Bring It On'. The album went platinum in the UK, and the group has continued to find success overseas. I've always liked Gomez because they are a bit of an anomaly in the world of music today in that everyone in the group sings and shares songwriting and production duties. Never mind the fact that they write some great songs, unfortunately none of which have ever really found mainstream success in Canada or the US. I've picked a tune called 'Devil Will Ride' from their second album, 'Liquid Skin', for your viewing and listening pleasure today. Check these guys out further if you have a chance-they have an eclectic vibe and really do deserve more attention than they get from North American music lovers.
