Chris Mars – 75% Less Fat – Cassette

Chris Mars is an American musician and artist. He is best known as the drummer for the influential alternative rock band The Replacements. Mars was a member of the band from its formation in 1979 until its breakup in 1991. He contributed to the band’s albums such as “Let It Be,” “Tim,” and “Pleased to Meet Me.”

After leaving The Replacements, Chris Mars pursued a solo career as a musician and released several albums, including “Horseshoes and Hand Grenades” (1992), “75% Less Fat” (1993), “Tenterhooks” (1995), and “Anonymous Botch” (1996). His music often incorporates elements of alternative rock, punk, and power pop.

Chris Mars’ second album, 75% Less Fat, follows the same pattern as his debut, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades. Like its predecessor, the record is a one-man band (Mars plays everything) collection of appealingly rough-edged power-pop driven by ringing guitar hooks and surprisingly sweet and catchy melodies.

Unlike most one-man projects, 75% Less Fat actually rocks, there’s a loose unhinged feeling to the rhythms that make the music sound like a group effort. Mars’ songs might be a little inconsistent, but the album has an endearing, ragged charm that makes it hard to dislike.

In addition to his music career, Chris Mars is also an accomplished visual artist. He is known for his distinct style of painting and has exhibited his artwork in galleries and museums. Mars’s art often explores themes of alienation, mental health, and personal struggles.
