The Mothership / Press

“Bright Side of Dim is the perfect storm of sound that will sweep you away and take you on a mind blowing musical journey. The level of musicianship poured into this record is just outstanding; every note hits the mark without a single extraneous beat. Every track stands alone and has something different to love”

“Biting guitar riffs, killer harmonies with drums and bass holding down the lower end and delivering the punch to augment the songs rather than over power them. There isn’t a weak track on here and for us this is as good as music gets”

“Atmostphere, a few top hooks and some devistating riffage - "Bright Side of Dim" has that all covered in style. The results of their increased confidence and experimentations leave behind a devistatingly good alt-rock record... don't miss it.”

“The nice thing about gaining respect for your writing and music taste over a 25-year period is that you have freedom to say what you want without being confined or second-guessed. I am no spring chicken and I am no Rolling Stone apprentice. I'm Xana La Fuente. And if I could rewrite my life, after hearing the voice of Johndus Beckman and the music of The Mothership, I would not change a single thing in my past. My past brought me to today. And today I get to see and hear the amazing voice of Johndus and hear the amazing music he writes, and when I'm lucky, rock out to his band The Mothership.”

“The Mothership landed on the Showbox stage in dramatic fashion. The crew at the helm landed on a psychedelic smoke filled stage. Johndus Beckman, Paul Fraser, Ryan Thornes and Will Andrews put on a show of epic proportions. Their performance was reminiscent of the Alternative Grunge rock revolution that made Seattle a musical mecca back in the 1990s.”

“The ominous pace captures the spirit of all that was great about Seattle in the 90's...”

“All in all this is an album I highly recommended if you want to hear something different. These excellent Cosmic Space Rockers will brighten any day or mood to any dis-concerning heavy rock fan.”

“The Mothership is a refreshingly genuine band from Seattle that is looking to make their mark in redirecting the reputation of Seattle's rock scene from dirty, sometimes whiny grunge from the past to a new era of of modern rock sure to bring the city's music scene back into the national spotlight.”

"It's a pretty interesting blend"

“This is a great local band!”

“I've heard nothing but high praise about you guys...”
