"If youre a fan of listening to AmRep-style, throat-hammering noise rock while operating a lawnmower, Sacramentos Mayyors have been your favorite band for quite a while now. The stories that Ive heard about the general directive of this band (self-release ten singles and call it a day, suggest a coastal alliance and rarely leave the state of California) points towards a treatise on how to make people remember them. I hope the streak of conceptual purity holds out, and it looks as if it might, because this four-song 12" is better than their first two singles. Luxurious 45 RPM mastering at as little as four minutes per side makes this one of the loudest punk records since In Love with Jetts, guaranteeing that whatever rental properties its played in are going to lose significant fractions of their security deposits. Im not normally a fan of effects pedal abuse, but what Chris Woodhouse does with them on Clicks, the way he builds a simple, two-note progression into percussive blastloops that line up with the drums, and dial through them like the channel knob on a now-useless TV set, has turned me around. These guys busted DJ Ricks forehead open at a house show -- not on purpose, of course -- but when was the last time any of you felt so much for a band that you were willing to risk bodily harm to let them play? I think he took the hit for us all. Serious Hazelmyer/Gear Jammer worship put to a hefty rhythm section that fires the kick on the up and the down beats, possessing that rolled-up-in-a-rug-and-tossed-downhill sorta ambiance that really makes these sorta things come together. Prolonged exposure to these times has been difficult. Mayyors dont take the burn away, but they do blot out the rest of the world for refreshing, two-three-minute bursts -- in the parlance of the Cinco Toilet Shower, just enough time to get clean." - Doug Mosurok.
