Hong Kong psychobilly-punk act Say Mosquito are fully mad. Their music is a hodgepodge of sounds that can only be expertly crafted and performed by INCREDIBLY gifted musicians – the trio are more than gifted in that regard. According to the band’s website, “In 2009, classically-trained pianist Maggie spotted a picture of Steve holding a guitar on a dating site – and reached out to ask, “do you know how to scream?” Instead, the homesick, loveslick lothario taught his new muse how to pluck the bass and they consummated the whole fortuitous thing with a debut duet gig after just 12 weeks … and were married within three years. After one-too-many gnatty insect bites (Sai a synonym for “die” in Maggie’s mother tongue, Cantonese), Say Mosquito was completed with the saloon door-kickin’ arrival of Ah Wah – originally hired for a one-off session, the veteran sticksman dug the vibe of steely perfectionism and stuck around for the long, slow, ride ahead, bringing a technical tumult to the love birds’ frenetic riffing and hi-jinx charms.
The playfully-titled debut EP, Oh No!, bottled this power trio-on-steroids’ early sound – a constipated hotpot of psychobilly and psychobabble, imagery and irreverence, vintage punk and retro pop, (but definitely not pop-punk).”
