The sound of The SpongeTones is reminiscent of many of the most familiar names of the British Invasion, but especially The Beatles. This seasoned group of musicians have channeled the Fab Four in their look, sound and even in their own original songs since the late 1970s.
SpongeTones are aglow with a forward-thrusting musical abandon that recalls the glory days of many of the most familiar British Invasion front-liners, including the Beatles, the Dave Clark Five, the Zombies and the Who…. But the SpongeTones’ music has little of the rote, dogmatic obeisance of mere revivalism; instead, it sounds like the soundtrack to a party so good it could never happen in real life.”
Rolling Stone, September 15, 1983
