Send a SHOUT-OUT to MTP on MySpace!!! <-----New!
Magnolia Thunderpussy, a source of pride and inspiration for
Westside LA’s mid-‘80s underground, was the first high school age band
to earn a record contract with legendary indie label SST. Musically,
MTP fuses myriad influences -- surf, garage, jazz, punk, funk, rock and
country -- naturally, and without concern for genre boundaries.
Magnolia’s set-lists feature equal doses of high-energy instrumental
jams and songs whose lyrics depict a search for identity and the pain
and longing that go along with it. While Magnolia originally disbanded
in 1986 before making an album, the group has recently re-formed and is
releasing “Starin’ Down the Sun",
a collection of their 1985 studio recordings and a full live
performance. MTP is playing out again, so be sure to see the band in
...as James Fenton of the Treacherous Jaywalkers says: “Magnolia [is] a live experience. Each gig [is] something unexpected, and something ineffably beautiful.”
