Their contribution: Dreaded World

Ann Arbor, MI-based Mazinga draws its inspiration from garage punk and comic books, playing in a self-dubbed style of “maximum cosmic punk.” Formed in 1995, the band (who take their name from a Japanese cartoon robot) have played regionally and released a series of 7”s and an album through small indie labels Reanimator and Spasthmatic. Sounding like punk pioneers MC5 and Radio Birdman, Mazinga features fast tempos, dissonant guitar work, and argy-bargy live shows. In 2001, drummer Don Blum left the band to join the Detroit-based Von Bondies and was replaced by Mike O’Reilly the following year. —- In the spring of 2003 the band split for three years while the members pursued other interests. In Jan. 2006 the band reformed with Jef Jenkins on drums. In May of 2007 Jef quit the band to reform Cobra Youth. His seat was quickly filled by Alex King (from the local rockers the 77’s). Mazinga is currenty working on new songs and playing shows.
