About with special guest Stan McMahon

Wide-ranging rock covers

with special guest Stan McMahon

"As someone who has to be routinely reminded to tie his shoes, it's always impressive to meet a person blessed with a spot-on elephant's memory. Stan McMahon, despite 50 plus years and 50,000 plus beers under his belt, is still sharp as a tack when it comes to rock. Rightfully earning his self styled reputation as "'he Human Jukebox,' the man's mental songbook is heavy with Beatles, Byrds and Big Star. Though he's mainly garnered attention with his Guided by Voices cover band, Giant Bug Village, the Stan McMahon Band serves up equally tasty slabs of power-pop goodness." - Josh Blanchard, Portland Mercury

"An interesting quality to Stan's songs, and something that perhaps does betray his age, is the lack of cynicism and irony in his vocals. His slightly husky voice sounds completely earnest, but not annoyingly so, and his lyrics always provide for a hand out of the darkness to help, redemption for those needing it, and other sweet, tender sentiments that are refreshing in an age when so many rock acts. With the snappy musical and harmony backing of his Peacocks, a full Stan McMahon sound is a terrific mix of melodicism and optimism." - inmusicwetrust.com
