With their fierce intensity and explosive punk rock energy, The Whigs had a specific mission in mind for their new album, MISSION CONTROL; to capture the energy and spirit of their live show. The legendary Hollywood Sunset Sound Studios (where everyone from The Beach Boys to Led Zeppelin have tracked) was a far cry from the sweaty, dilapidated mansion in Athens, GA, where the then-college students made their self-produced and later critically acclaimed debut GIVE ‘EM ALL A BIG FAT LIP, but it proved an optimal background for their ATO Records debut, MISSION CONTROL. MISSION CONTROL is a raucous thirty-seven minutes embodying all things forgotten in alt rocks uncompromising optimism.
Focusing on songs, playing them hard and with heart - its no surprise MISSION CONTROL captures a raw and gritty spirit that makes pop music interesting. The band’s new album delivers on the promise the trio raised with 2005’s self-released GIVE ‘EM ALL A BIG FAT LIP - an attention-getting shot across the bow that had everyone from Rolling Stone, Spin, Blender, Entertainment Weekly and many others scrambling to be the first to praise the young newcomers. The album is a reaction, a reengagement in the bare-boned aesthetic and melody of indie rock music and its left-of-center predecessors. “Pavement were huge for me,” says songwriter Parker Gispert. “I remember discovering them and the Replacements and realizing that these people wrote pop songs — really well-written, catchy tunes with cool lyrics — and that made pop music appealing for me.”
