The Mysteios / Press

“The hardest working band in Troy, the Mysteios kicked off the afternoon with a compact set that featured their own ear candy “It’s Bongo Time” (which strangely features not a single bongo) alongside some well-chosen covers of the Pixies (“Here Comes My Man”) and the New York Dolls-by-way-of-Bo Diddley (“Pills”).”

“Led by guitarist Johnny Mystery and the effervescent Tambourine Girl, like-minded Local 518 garage rockers the Mysteios opened the show with a sharp set highlighted by such catchy selections as “Camel Walk” and “It’s Bongo Time.””

“Johnny Mystery & the Mysteios blast off with a bang-up version of “Bongo Time” for your delight and edification. And just for the record, yes, we know those are congas, not bongos. But hell, we just don’t care…”

“Bandleader-guitarist-vocalist Johnny Mystery has beefed up the band and the production values a bit this time around, but not enough to mess up the raucous, trance-inducing, three-chord, fuzzed-out beauty that is the Mysteios.”

“It’s raucous. It’s rough ‘n’ tumble. It’s raw.”
