I’m sure there’s a [Japanese] band called WALT MINK too, but it seems weird that two bands would call themselves a name like that. Am I missing something? Anyway, this WALT MINK is American suburban boys and I’m sitting on the fence for this one. It could be either (a) horrible semi-funky 60s sounding pop music or (b) hip jazzy pop-punk with oohs and aahs in abundance. The lack of any packing doesn’t help to make up my mind. Oh hang on, in the time it took me to type that last sentence I’ve decided this is former of the the two styles. No wait, the song that I really like has just started so I’ve changed my mind and decided it’s the latter of the two. I think. I don’t know. What’s my name? (RR) – Fracture zine 4 (1998)
“While Walt Mink may stylistically have more in common with the Meat Puppets and the Flaming Lips, I hereby stamp Colossus with the official Uncle Fester classic album status.” – June 17, 19937. Read the full review on Fast n’ Bulbous.
