(Don't) Stop the Presses!

A printing plate fitted to a cylinder of a rotary press during printing at Thomson Newspapers London Office circa 1950.

The reviews are in, and we could not be more humbled.  (Well, I suppose we could skip the part where we repost our favorite compliments...)  2017 was a great year for R. Mutt.  The reaction to our new record, The Dash, has been stellar, local support from both WMSE and 88Nine in spinning our songs has introduced us to new fans, and we shared stages with great bands like Stereoactive, The Dexateens, The Gyps and dada.

If you have not seen any of the reviews of the record, most of them are linked below.   You can also hit our PRESS page to see reviews of our past records. 

We are looking forward to another great year and hope to see you out in MKE or Chicago.   Say "Hi."  We might buy you a beer.


"From start to finish The Dash is a solid record that is a blast to listen to."

"Wafts of Springsteen and Rush will hit you like a blast furnace"

"Screaming roars of vocals combine with raucous guitar and thumping that sucker down drums to provide music that begs for answers to many fundamental questions." 

"...the band locks down into a pummeling rock groove that one could equally equate to The Stones and the better glam rock bands of the seventies and even, dare we say it, KISS." 

"Rare is the musical classicist who can inhabit a genre without coming off as a revivalist. On their fifth full-length album, The Dash, Milwaukee’s R. Mutt achieves that sort of classicism when it comes to classic rock."
