Psycho Mad Sally / Press

“Sasha Nevskaya (a.k.a. Psycho Mad Sally) sounds like the long lost younger and angrier sister of Lemmy Kilmister. It’s aggressive, heavy and distinct, so you’d better keep your eye on the ball when dealing with Psycho Mad Sally, she bows to no one!”

“After you’ve done this a while, you start to get very jaded about all the solicitations for coverage that come along with it. One one hand, technology has made the music world a little better, opening the door for bands that may never have been heard in the old world. On the other, anyone with an instrument, a basic recorder and a basement can make a record, and so much of the stuff that gets thrown your way is, honestly, not very good. I try to sit down about once a week and sort through my inbox. After an hour or so of opening e-mails from people who play types of music I have little interest in or sampling music that sounds like it was recorded in said basement by people who are just learning to play their instruments, you start to wonder why you bother. Then you find something pretty cool. I’m not going to say that Psycho Mad Sally is the best band that I’ve discovered recently, but they are interesting, and that can be a sadly rare commodity these days.”

“The opening band for the night, Psycho Mad Sally, produced an ecclectic sound combined with that of the violin. I found their music style to be a bit at odds with this combo, and the gruff female vox only added more chaos to the foray. I have to assume that is their intention given the band name. Their bold, wild child vocalist unleashed her antics on and off stage. Mad as a hatter I tell you. This band won a spot at the semi finals.”

“ popVLTR: How did you first get into music? How has your style evolved over the years? At the beginning we were more garage rock, indie punk style. Over the years we started getting Heavier. We got better at what we do (musically) obviously as well. We changed members(better and more experienced musicians) and started to gain some recognition in the local scene. Also Online. popVLTR: Who have been some of your biggest influences? Musically or otherwise? Andrei Si: Big Rock N Roll /metal head fan. Megadeth, Guns N Roses, Slayer, Skid Row, Kiss Etc.

“At Home With Psycho Mad Sally: by Jason Daniel Baker "Whether he was playing in C.J. Sleez's band or Cyanide For Cindy or his new outfit - the deliciously avant garde Psycho Mad Sally - he has always made himself available to chat about his efforts with his characteristic Carpathian nobility and modesty. The Romanian-born axeman has himself a smoldering sound matched with vocalist Sasha Nevskaya. If they're going for something unique I'd say they found it though with these two it is hard to imagine them doing anything that might sound derivative or readily definable" "Their sound, which at first listen struck me as a kind of Siouxsie Sioux meets Motorhead melange, is one wherein the recordings reflect the live show rather than being a live show which reflects the recordings. Their independently produced and released EP features some real revolutionary work including stand outs like 'Anarchia' and 'Mama's Teachings' which are the showstoppers in their live show. ”
