“The Mommyheads, a newly-reformed and much-followed bohemian rock band founded in the late 80’s, recently embarked on a global tour to promote the reissue of their album Flying Suit, and just announced another series of shows promoting a compilation spanning their entire career, entitled Finest Specimens. As with any hotly-anticipated band resurgence, this retrospective is chock full of their hits as well as a plethora of live recordings, previously unreleased tracks and much more.”
“Back in the ’90s, the Mommyheads were a quirky, pop-leaning indie-rock band with a cult following that achieved virtually no commercial success whatsoever. The same can be said about far too many other groups from the era, but what separated the Mommyheads from their peers was just how good these musicians were.”
