Mad the Martian was formed when brothers Bob and Jack Marsh reunited with long-time friend and producer-extraordinaire Anthony J. Resta to do one song “C’mon! C’mon! C’mon!” Well, when the three locked out Resta’s Bopnique Studios, just north of Boston, with Engineer/Magician Karyadi Sutedja, the result – some 1300 hours later- was a new band, “Mad the Martian” and a new album “Blast Off!” Thirteen tracks of fresh, future/classic rock n’ roll tunes that sound so familiar- yet new and exciting- that they harken back to the days when there were bands that could get people excited.
States an enthused Resta, “We are all vintage gear collectors, lovers of all things analog, tape machines and synthesizers and pickups and amp cabs and heads. We constantly buy and sell and trade guitars from the 50’s and 60’s and 70’s. We can talk about pedals and amps and tubes for hours. People in the same room with us get a headache hearing all the model numbers and endless geeky details about the tones and sonic character in endless minutiae.”
“We got together and started with an idea to write a song and use only gear that was built in the same era as all the cool stuff we were listening to as kids. But gear is just stuff and what we did with all that stuff was pure magic. We even wrote a song called “Stuff”. A ton of sweat went into each and every word, every note, every transition, every bridge, and every break. Sometimes things happened quickly. Sometimes we labored over details for days. Sometimes we argued, sometimes we left frustrated. But as each and every final mix was printed we unanimously felt fulfilled in a way that is simply indescribable. We decided to keep going and 13 songs later our debut album “Blast Off” is launching.”
MadtheMartian is a lifelong journey. Our first destination is “Blast Off”. Thanks for taking this ride with us.
