Ep 35 - Song 7: "Raise the Dead" by Raw Mojo



"Raw Mojo is a power rock trio with dueling harmonizing female and male vocals, velcro ripping guitars, deep thumping bass, and powerful primal drums. The band plays a wide variety of rock music, from power ballads, to sexy romps, to all out punk rock. This threesome has been together since 2006 and plays mostly original material but will throw in occasional cover songs as crowd pleasers...

"Imagine what happens when you mix elements of rock, blues, punk, grunge, and a touch of shoegaze together in a meat grinder. What you end up with is Raw Mojo. Sure, it sounds tasty...but wait until you hear it!

"Hailing from the Midwest, Raw Mojo's music comes straight from their gut - or as they like to call it, “the basement.” Unlike some bands, Raw Mojo is never afraid to embrace and flaunt their influences. The weird thing is that the band probably shouldn't work when you take each member's individual traits, tastes, and influences. But yet somehow, everything falls into place to create much more than just a sum of its parts. This is a group that writes and plays what they feel: no guidelines, no certain genres need to be met, just pure music. With Raw Mojo it's always music first, bullshit second.

"Raw Mojo is like a family. They stick tight together and support their fans as much as their fans support them. What this family of Mojomongers provides is music for the young at heart (though probably not your grandparents' music). Mainly, the band has a “take what you will from us” punk like attitude as well as that 'let's leave the stage in burning embers' feeling once they have rawked it. It's this kind of attitude that has many listeners saying, 'I want to hear that again!' song after song. If the band has one bad habit, it’s to leave the stage leaving the audience wanting more.r rock trio with dueling harmonizing female and male vocals, velcro ripping guitars, deep thumping bass, and powerful primal drums.

"Mojo is defined as many things. The one definition that I thought fit this piece was one I found on Urban Dictionary. Their definition of Mojo is 'The word originally means a charm or a spell. But now it’s more commonly said meaning sex appeal or talent.' That definition is exactly how I would describe the band Raw Mojo. Their music is charming, full of sex appeal and talent. When I listen to their new album Brickbat Theory, it’s like listening to a movie soundtrack. There are so many different genres of music captured on this album, the only way to explain them are to simply say ‘They are Raw Mojo.’"
