“Like the Black Crowes, the Muggs make no apologies for their retro influences, but unlike Chris Robinson‘s crew this band has drawn inspiration from a number of sources and learned to fuse them into something that has a personality of its own…” — AllMusic.com
We last heard The Muggs on Audio Gumshoe 102 following the release of their album “On With The Show”. Their first appearance on Audio Gumshoe was back in October 2007 just as the band was competing on the Fox network show The Next Big American Band. Though they didn’t get past round 2, they were able to introduce themselves to new fans across the globe. The Muggs are one of the few bands that have been repeat feature artists on Audio Gumshoe. This band exhibits a style that matches many of the classic rock giants of the past.
The band is preparing their official launch of the their third LP “Born Ugly” on Friday, April 29, 2011. They will be holding a release party at one of their favorite venues, Magic Bag, in Ferndale, Michigan. You can buy tickets now for only $8. If you don’t get them online, tickets are $10 at the door.
“Born Ugly” will be available in CD, mp3 download, and vinyl. There are thirteen tracks sure to please the avid rock fan. Four selections are played on this episode of Audio Gumshoe. Be sure to visit their site to find out all the details about the new release and the details of the release party.
Be sure to visit the band’s official site to catch up to their news — and while you’re there check out the video clip from the July 20, 2010 episode of A&E’s Gene Simmon’s Family Values. The Muggs song “All Around You” was used as a background riff on the show.

I don’t often get submissions from bands that have little to say about themselves on their web sites. Coyote Kolb, however, has left much of the explanation to the music itself. Their dedication to the craft is well realized in the songs from ‘Massachusett’ — the debut album by the band.
I did learn that the group is from Jamaica Plains, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. They recorded and produced the entire album in a house in Jamaica Plain. The album was engineered by Will Benoit, with assistance by Rob Motes. Chadley Kolb, songwriter, vocalist and guitarist, wrote, mixed and produced the entire album. It was mastered in February 2010 at New Alliance East in Cambridge, MA.
Much of what can be said about the band is described in their documentary video, which I have included right here [Note: explicit language]:
