The Mad Doctors / Press

“It’s like a horror movie hillbilly hayride but the hillbillies are The Mad Doctors and instead of wagons, they are cruising a couple of swanky ghoulish hot rods.”

“...the real NYC garage punk deal.”

“Overdriven everything rules this recording [Fuzz Tonic]; you can almost feel the heat coming off the budget preamps as they struggle to maintain the signal over flow and not shit out.”

“For a band who isn’t selling their physical material on the internet, their cassette [Fuzz Tonic] is almost too good for that to be allowed. And that’s a fact. If this stuff was available on vinyl I bet half of you readers would be itching to throw your money down for it, because I know I am. Using the only accurate descriptor available, “psychofuzz” is probably the closest you can get to their snarling, surf-punk debauchery without actually touching anything for fear of infection.”

“I’ve never seen such crowd participation at an indie band’s gig. I’ve never seen Trash Bar get destroyed either. By the end of the show the floor was a tundra of TP. Everyone left happy. The band was completely in tune with their audience.”

“Any garage-punker with a healthy love of the macabre would be hard-pressed not to get into Fuzz Tonic!! The tape begins with some campy horror movie sound clips and commences to rock the fuck out much in the style of Los Vigilantes or even Motörhead in their more groovy excursions.”

“The Mad Doctors have invented the perfect garage punk formula...[They] have injected a sense of fun -- not to mention melody -- that's really what this whole craziness is all about.”

“[On Fuzz Tonic] From the superb instrumental “Alive and Well (and Living In Leningrad)” to the psychedelic biker threat of “Scorpion Queen” the band coolly bridges 1950’s, rebellious guitar ambience with hammered percussion and scattered movie dialogue. The band explodes with “Left Brain,” a stellar barn burning track that highlights an otherwise blistering album.”

“The Mad Doctors are skillful musicians who are able to incorporate the pulp/cult aura of yesteryear and incorporate with the sounds of that era and give birth to some awe-inspiring rock.”

“[One of] 10 Brooklyn artists to have on your iPod this summer...Garage rock and monster movie mayhem at its finest.”

“Nothing can prepare you for the heavy hitting music from The Mad Doctors. I recently saw them perform live and everyone in the audience was on their feet, dancing wildly to their hypnotic sound waves and surferbilly grunge style of music...Put that concoction together, and the result ends up being hard rock with a side of ballin’ music!”

“They get a massive thumbs up from ourselves, with the foot stompingly awesome “Beer Bellied Woman” being a particular favourite...we cannot recommend the guys highly enough.”

“Bored of the same old safe electric indie pop bands that dominate the Brooklyn small stage scene? We hear ya. That is why we have decided to give you some insight into The Mad Doctors, a Brooklyn based band of three local B-movie loving, hard rocking, unnecessary surgery operating badass musicians. Get ready to be jolted, cause these Doctors want to see you dance.”

“[Fuzz Tonic] kicks in all the right spots and hits the parts that other music just can't reach.”

“[Fuzz Tonic] is an absolute gem.”
