The O.C. Supertones held a top spot in many Christian music fans’ hearts, with their light-hearted – yet always deeply spiritual – ska music. After Five Iron Frenzy called it quits, The Supertones ended up not being too far behind. In 2008, their lead singer, Matt “Mojo” Morginsky, took some time out of his busy schedule and wrote and recorded a brand new album on his own, calling the project Mojo & the Info. It was a delight to Supertones fans, as it was essentially the same sound, just without the horns (though it would be unfair to limit it to that description). Mojo’s deep, Christ-centered lyrics were still present, but he also sang a song about meeting his wife, and he got personal with a song about his first wife leaving him; a song that’s sometimes hard to listen to. If you’re a Supertones fan, and you somehow haven’t heard of this solo project, you should probably get on it and see what you think. I’m holding onto hope for there being a follow up from Mr. Morginsky. ~ Scott Fryberger
