Review of What's the Buzz in the Boston Phoenix 3/9/90 -Mente are a little bit Jonathan Richman, a little bit Larry, Darryl, and Darryl. In five songs, this prop-intensive live outfit range freely over such topics as scrod ("second only to God"), Bobby Orr ("the greatest hockey player to ever strap on a pair of friggin' ice skates"), and Hogan's Heroes' Bob Crane ("Used to take pictures of himself with little girls, in the nude"). More dialogue than actual music, more sluggish than snappy, but long on humor and chutzpah.
