We used to do a thing around here called the "Dead Bands" series. This particular post wasn't intended to be a new installment in that series, but in doing some requisite research on THE MAYFLIES USA, I discovered with much regret that they had called it quits quite some time ago.
While they were still a going concern, the Mayflies called Chapel Hill, North Carolina home and trafficked in a brand of power pop heavily indebted to BIG STAR. For a more current comparison: think a less-slick/lower-fi FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE and you'll at least be in the ballpark.
Rest in peace, Mayflies USA. We hardly knew ye.
