This is the second release off their fourth CD from the San Francisco group entitled ‘Back To Momo’ which has been receiving massive airplay. Tony West and Todd Youth, two of rock n’ roll’s most controversial outlaws teamed together to write 13 blistering tracks for the CD. You are guaranteed inspiration with this brand of street rock with songs like “Alive N Well Smack in the Middle of Hell,” “Superjaded,” and “Evil Eye” which is a tale of abuse Tony suffered as a child from his mother & how that haunted his life until he finally just let it go.
“Let me just say this right now, so there’s no confusion. Back to Momo is 100% absotively, posolutely The Maestro’s 2015 ALBUM OF THE MOTHERFUCKING YEAR, and there’s nothing anyone can do, say, or release that will change that. If you want real, raw, honest, no-bullshit Sunset Strip-type rock n roll then this is THE album for you.” RATING: 10/10 AMPS AND GREENSCREENS
“Tony West and Todd Youth have truly written a masterpiece that should go down with some of the greatest alternative albums in history.” ROCK REVOLT MAGAZINE
