Candygram For Mongo

Candygram For Mongo began in late 2005 when Tony Shea and Gary Sharp started ripping through tunes out in the back shack of G's house in North Hollywood. They had a common interest in rock and punk music- music that wore its ideals on its sleeves; old school rock that had guts but still had a sense of humor, romance, and storytelling: The Ramones, Chuck Berry, Social Distortion, Led Zeppelin, Bad Religion, Bruce Springsteen, The Cramps, Bill Hailey, The Replacements, Motorhead, The Clash, The Dead Kennedys, The Butthole Surfers, The Kinks, Dropkick Murphys, and Tom Petty.

Candygram For Mongo began in late 2005 when Tony Shea and Gary Sharp started ripping through tunes out in the back shack of G's house in North Hollywood. They had a common interest in rock and punk music- music that wore its ideals on its sleeves; old school rock that had guts but still had a sense of humor, romance, and storytelling: The Ramones, Chuck Berry, Social Distortion, Led Zeppelin, Bad Religion, Bruce Springsteen, The Cramps, Bill Hailey, The Replacements, Motorhead, The Clash, The Dead Kennedys, The Butthole Surfers, The Kinks, Dropkick Murphys, and Tom Petty.

With Tony singing and playing guitar and Gary on drums and bass, they started laying down some demos on their home computer. Soon after, Johnny D joined the band and proved to be the perfect fit to round out the group. In addition to being a dynamite guitar player, Johnny had the producing skills to fine-tune Tony and Gary’s original arrangements, and a full studio in his house to make their collective ideas a reality. With Johnny on board, C4M was complete and began production on their first record, "The Red Pill..

With their debut LP, "The Red Pill," now finished, the band has brought on Dan Cohen to play bass and is taking their show on the road. After that, who knows? Blogcritics.org says, “THE RED PILL is THE RIGHT CHOICE!” Their song, INTERMISSION, was already featured on the number-1 cable show on Friday’s - "Battlestar Galactica,” five tracks - STORY OF TRIUMPH, THE KIDS HAVE ALL GONE CRAZY, HAPPY, MOON, and GIRLFRIEND have already been praised by the fans and have earned Track of the Day and Track of the Week awards on Garageband.com, as well as fan awards for Best Guitars, Best Vocals, Best Drums, Most Rockin’ Track (the list goes on), and as Ear Candy Magazine wrote, "[We] don’t know where this band of roughnecks came from, but [we] smell Warped Tour 2006!"
