Image: 1598640 Daptone Records is proud to present the debut 45 from a group of young fellas who are dominating the NOW sound in Rock N' Roll. That's right folks, Daptone Records, the world leader in today's soul music is now ready to take on the happenings of the modern rock scene. We present to you, on our newest subsidiary, WICK Records: The Myster y Lights.

Even though they may sound more like some lost outfit from the depths of mid-sixties Texas than a bunch of scruffy kids from the streets of 21st Centur y Brooklyn, The Mystery Lights combine relentless enthusiasm, and a knack for a hook into an all-action rock n roll combo for the here and now. Their first single pairs a ridiculously catchy neo-teenbeat number "Too Many Girls" (our protagonist surrounded by a feminine throng he can't control) with the snaking psych-blues of "Too Tough To Bear", featuring the band dragging their squalling guitars deep into swampland.

Though it was recorded to 8-track tape at Daptone's legendar y House of Soul by Daptone studio superstar Wayne Gordon and mixed by Bosco Mann, it was the cutting engineer JJ Golden who called it "the hottest record I ever cut."
