Hey Mercedes
Sep 19, 2000

All formats include instant MP3 download.

Formed by Bob Nanna (guitar/vocals), Todd Bell (bass/vocals) and Damon Atkinson (drums) after the break-up of Braid in 1999, Hey Mercedes (rounded out by guitarist Mark Dawursk) released its self-titled debut in 2000.

This four-song EP brings a little of the old with a serious move toward the future. Powerful, harmonious songs are filled with catchy melodies.

Recorded by Mark Haines at Smart Studios. All songs are exclusive to this release.

After Hey Mercedes disbanded, Bob Nanna (Friction, Braid) began to release solo work under the name The City on Film.

Straightforward and making no attempt to hide their love for pop structures, Hey Mercedes is the logical extension of Braid.


Even though there is a big Braid style to this, it has more of a direct rocking sound to it.

Hanging Like a Hex

Hey Mercedes delivers creative, honest rock tunes that feature diverse guitar parts and driving rhythms.

It’s sparkling Superchunk-ish rock, and it’s a delicious next step.

This CD is good. Damn good. I knew it would be, and once you buy this so will you...after one listen you’ll be singing along to all the songs, and they’ll not escape your head.


All four of these songs are amazing and I think Hey Mercedes pulled off a really great first EP. I really think this band’s going to take off. Get it while it’s hot.
