Reviews for "The Adventure of Sue and Mo (The Cut Loose Mix)"

Ladies - nice bloody work. Congrats on a very excellent collaboration. The pella will get a lot of milage, methinks.

I’m not really a rocker, so the version I hear in my head has less intensity of drums and guitar, but the same lovely vocals.

Goodie. Jump in and ride along with us for a while. Not too scared, are you?!

I’m with Mo. Party with us for a while, and I am sure your inner rocker will thank you!

I know I’m breaking out with you on this one, Sue, but I’m giving you an A+, thumbs up review because you’ve done all the hard graft. All I did was hang around making useless suggestions while swigging from a bottle of Cointreau and lighting up fags. Your mate, Mo. xxxx

If you keep up with the self-deprecating crap I’m gonna’ leave you in the next hick town we drive through to stew for a while and sop of gravy with a wet biscuit. There’ be no Sue & Mo without the wit, wisdom, class and charm of Mo!

:) I enjoyed this track for several reasons: the whole mix, for sure. Those vocals. That understated guitar riffs. The ‘walking’ bass. And yeah, the blog posts!

i’m stoked over this piece, but not surprised. i know a guitar player who’d go on the road with you & Cig and only step up front when called on.

Thanks Mr. Moon. As for the guitar player…let’s just see if he can keep up!

Thanks Mr. MC-Jack. We’re just startin’ out on this crazy adventure — who knows what songs will be sung in the future and which man will be around to back us up!

Actually we seem to have quite a lot of men in the auto with us - they better not start telling us how to drive!

Dear Thelma and Louise,
I love the extrovert feel of the whole….concept. Girl Power 2009. The song, a slightly loosely (on purpose, I’m sure) arranged very charming rocker. I know you live a few time zones away from eachother but it really feels as if you did this recording together in a cheap studio and had lots of cheap wine and said lots of cheap things about men.

With love from Sweden. xxxx

Glad you could come along for the ride Per. And you can rest easy to know that while we may have plenty to say about other men, we had nothing bad to say about you!

I’m drunk, come over, ladies, I want to hug you.
permalink   SackJo22 Fri, Sep 25, 2009 @ 1:06 PM
You don’t want to take us both on. That will just be trouble.
permalink   timberman Fri, Sep 25, 2009 @ 1:25 PM
Must stop. Getting silly and sentimental. A pleasant weekend, dear Thelma and Louise.

You should have been here yesterday, Chuck….

Wow, this is some fun cuttin’ loose sound! A great mix! Like something you would hear in a rural bar on that night when they happened to book a band that was happy to be there and everyone was feeling real good so you end up feeling real good too even though you felt lousy when you came in. The vocal harmonies made me think of the Roches. A favorite.

We’re all for perkin’ people up, even if we are on the run. And if Sue & Mo can make you think of Maggie, Terri & Suzzy — we know we rocked something right cuz’ those girls have some fine power in their pipes! Thanks Mr. Speck.

WoW !!!!! Ladies this is SWEET
SackJo and Ciggi aka Sue and Mo.

Nice mix, sweet vocals and nice live feel.

Mr. Lang with nice words like that we might just pack you up and take you along for a ride! Thanks!
permalink   Mon, Sep 28, 2009 @ 2:35 PM
I thought by myself if you both wouldn_t do something together and heaven heard my prayers I could say.

The fun and enthusiasm is clearly hearable and so you both did a real nice rock duett, sounds like you both have shared the same mic head to head.

Beautiful, convincing and surprising!

Congrats ladies!

Thank you Sir Joe. And never underestimate the power of a couple of gals when they get together with a guitar, a harmonica and a red convertible!

Up in the Ozark Mountains, where folks have more sense than dollars,
everybody congregates on Dickson Street, a long row of bookshops, bars, a physics department and endless dream-like notions. People eat dessert crepes at Hugo’s and then hunker down for a bit of bar band blues. Some nights earnest people in overalls and flannel shirts play interminable covers of “Built for Comfort (not for speed)” before closing a set with a long, heartfelt patter about how they wish to play a special and yet obscure song called “Tequila Sunrise”, which, the singer will announce, Shiner Bock in hand,”means everything to me”.

But tonight things differ. The band has a more energetic look.
The rhythm section starts playing with a bit of passion, and then the guitar player sets down the line. The two women remain seated, each with a Guiness in hand, until
it’s time. Then it’s time. They rise, pick up the microphones, make a quick nod to each other and to the audience, smile, and begin to sing. The casual clinking of
chemical engineering students talking football and thermodynamics dissolves as everyone listens to the soaring harmonies and the mean guitar.
When the set ends, a few folks clap, a few more folks come up and say “wow”, and everyone orders a Guiness.

The vocals harmonies here are great, and the guitar work is really fun. This was a fun listen, which reminded me of bar bands I have heard in the mountains, only much better.

Just listened to this again after a while and need to mention - good job on the bass. It drives this tune with a lot of space.
