1 - MIND SPIDERS - FURIES - (LP) 
DIRTNAP


The Furies are the ancient Greek Gods of vengeance andviolence," says Mark Ryan of the title of his latest album. "The Furies were tamed," he continues, "but in my story, they are waking up and the ancient chaotic ways are resurfacing."Ryan (The Marked Men, High Tension Wires, Radioactivity),alongside Peter Salisbury (Baptist Generals) on synthand Mike Throneberry (The Marked Men) on drums, leadthis modernistic, machine-like and cinematic version of thestory of the Furies and have churned out something furious inreturn; this is their most electronic album yet. Gone are anynotions of Ryans former project the Marked Men and its styleof winningly bombastic garage-pop. Since 2012s Meltdown,Mind Spiders have been perfecting an aggressive, relentless,frenetic and melodic style of punk that is a long, dark shadowof DEVO but carries something much more sinister in its jawsas it slinks its way through the ears, illustrated by their lone, intensified cover of Grauzones 1980 hit, "Eisbaer." Its a sound for the new dark ages, emboldened by urgency and sped along by some good old fashioned panic.For fans of DEVO, Grauzone, Kraftwerk, D.A.F., Brian Eno, The Cars, Television, New Order, David Bowie, Skinny Puppy, The Cure, Giorgio Moroder.

2 - MIND SPIDERS - INHUMANISTIC - (CD) 
DIRTNAP


Mind Spiders are back with their 3rd album in 3 years! Featuring a streamlined lineup of Mark Ryan on vox/guitar/synth, Mike Throneberry on drums, Daniel Fried on bass, Peter Salisbury on synth, Inhumanistic finds the band going in a slightly more stripped down direction than previous efforts. The album was written while messing around with different drum machines, and while there is live drumming as well, drum machines play a prominent role as well, which is partly why the record is called Inhumanistic. The recording is very tight, direct, and almost claustrophobic. Influences for this record include Devo's Freedom Of Choice, Wall Of Voodoo and old horror movies (the songs Electric Things is about the movie From Beyond, for example.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Prelude 02. Inside You 03. Suicide 04. They Lie 05. City Stuff 06. Electric Things 07. You Are Mine 08. Pictures 09. I Want You 10. The Steady 11. Make Make Make Make 12. Oblivion

4 - MIND SPIDERS - MELTDOWN - (CD) 
DIRTNAP


2nd album from Mark Ryan's (Marked Men, High Tension Wires) Mind Spiders, and it's a Meltdown, alright. This is a very different beast from the s/t Mind Spiders LP released just 13 months ago. The most obvious difference is that while the s/t LP was recorded piecemeal, with Mark more-or-less playing all the instruments, Meltdown is the first Mind Spiders recordings to feature the full live band. And what a band it is: members of The Bad Sports, High Tension Wires, Marked Men, Uptown Bums, etc etc. The fact that there are 2 drummers (Mike from the Marked Men AND Greg from The High Tension Wires both play drums at the same time) gives alot of these songs a rhythmic complexity that sets the songs apart from a lot of other "garagey" type bands.

TRACKLISTING: 01. You Are Dead 02. Beat 03. On The Radio 04. More Than You 05. Play You Out 06. Fall In Line 07. Upside Down 08. Skull-eyed 09. Join Us Now 10. Wait For Us 11. Meltdown

5 - MIND SPIDERS - MIND SPIDERS - (LP) 
DIRTNAP


Around the time Denton, TX legends Marked Men were entering into their current state of semi- hibernation, co-singer/songwriter/ guitarist Mark Ryan decided he wanted to go in a slightly different direction for his next project, with recordings handled mostly by himself, and a fluid lineup of musicians to back him live. Intelligent, highly crafted songwriting with lots of twists and turns, meticulously recorded at home with Mark himself playing most of the instruments. Pop with brains and substance, catchy stuff that isn't afraid to spread out a bit and reflect a wide range of influences and interests. A little 60's pop here, a little lo-fi there, a little weirdo-in-his-bedroom-with-a-4-track in other places.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Go! 02. Don't Let Her Go 03. Mind Spiders Theme 04. Read Your Mind 05. Going Away Tonight 06. No Romance 07. No. 3 08. Onestep Ahead 09. Slippin' And Slidin' 10. Your Soul 11. Neurotic Gold 12. Close The Door

6 - MIND SPIDERS - PROSTHESIS - (LP) 
DIRTNAP


On Prosthesis, the bands fourth album in five years, the lineup is Ryan (Radioactivity, High Tension Wires, etc.), Daniel Fried (Bad Sports, Radioactivity, Video, High Tension Wires, etc.), Mike Throneberry (Marked Men) and Peter Salisbury (Baptist Generals / Sub Pop Records). While each Mind Spiders album has been different from the one before, Prosthesis is less of a stylistic departure from 2013s Inhumanistic than from previous work. The album clocks in at a brief eight tracks; however, the songs run a little longer than normal, really giving the individual pieces room to breathe and grow.The first Mind Spiders album to be recorded at Ryans and Jeff Burkes (Radioactivity, Marked Men) new Cool Devices studio in Ft. Worth, Prosthesis is easily their best, fullest sounding effort yet! Keyboard and guitar blend seamlessly into ominous yet catchy dark pop explorations that incorporate post-punk, bedroom pop, krautrock and tons of obscure references along the way.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Rip It Out 02. No Filter 03. Running 04. Cold 05. Prosthesis 06. Split In Two 07. Nothing Without It 08. Ulcer
