about

SON OF SKOOSHNY IS: A spin-off featuring Mark Breyer, SKOOSHNY frontman; Jeff Peters, longtime friend and collaborator, SKOOSHNY producer, and Beach Boys engineer; producer-collaborators Steve Refling, Arthur Schlenger, and Andy Colquhoun; and assorted friends.

The following has been written about SON OF SKOOSHNY:

“Skooshny...specialised in quirky, intelligent power pop with razor-sharp lyrics, complex song structures and big fat rounded guitars. Fast forward to 2010...[Mark] Breyer has teamed up with several long-time collaborators to bring us Son of Skooshny.... If memorably hook-filled songs are your bag, then you need to get your fill of this!” — The Terrascope (UK)

“Skooshny made swirling psychedelic pop music with the most distinctive of lead vocals. Now the man responsible for singing and writing most of those songs, Mark Breyer, is back. His new venture is named Son Of Skooshny and the new album is Lovers Leap Of Faith. All the old magic is in place....” — Bucketfull of Brains (UK)

"…a vibrant and pleasing collection of guitar pop and sixties teased/seventies spiced melodic rock songs.... All songs leave one enthused and bristling for much more.... Lovers Leap of Faith is a fine album that shows melodic pop does not have to be obvious, unoriginal, or sterile." — RingMaster (UK)

"No filler here and a very worthy album that rewards the patient listener." — Power Popaholic (USA)

A big thanks to Charlie at Stereo Hysteria for his excellent interview with Mark, his November 2014 artist of the month. Listen here: stereohysteria.podomatic.com/entry/2014-11-01T00_00_00-07_00

The following has been written over the years about what SKOOSHNY was:

“Contrary to popular rock’n’roll belief, flash isn't everything. Case in point: It's quite conceivable that no band in rock’s hoary history was less flashy, more self-effacing than SKOOSHNY. The name itself, widely disliked even by the band’s strongest supporters, is Russian for ‘boring.’

“This modest band, with its equally modest official recorded output, consistently produced music of rare quality: spectral harmonies, labyrinthine song structures, and playful, literate lyrics that transcended the low-budget productions to which they were constrained to resort.

“For years a small but devoted coterie of fans, collectors, and writers has remembered SKOOSHNY fondly. Now the opportunity is here to discover a fine, potentially brilliant band lost in limbo.”
— from liner notes by Ken Barnes, longtime music commentator and current Music Editor at USA Today
