RALPH NADER for President in 2000!
There was no other choice.
"...it was great seeing the Moths again, and marveling
at how effortlessly and seamlessly they manage to meld alt-country licks,
sonic guitars, and those awesome Keith Moon drum parts into a refreshingly
original and total package."
"That veneer of scrap metal makes all the difference
as these songs sing and soar with a vibrant intensity."
"A socko set of tight, well-constructed
pop songs and Noo Yawk attitude."
"Very college rock sounding stuff...back
when college rock was good."
"A long overdue 'discovery' in the making."
"This New York band is slightly punk,
but has enough bar room band charm to just get under your skin--like dirt
under your fingernails."
"Excellent Songwriting/ Excellent
Sound - Check them out!"
One guy teaches adults how to speak English. Another teaches art to criminals. A third teaches five year olds how to go to the bathroom. The drummer is a salesman in New Jersey. We play songs about cabbies, their fares, toll collectors, some guys who used to play in the band, some people who should never get together, beer, and art school. We're based in New York City where we play play regularly at CBGB, Arlene Grocery, Brownies, Coney Island High, The C-Note, Continental, The Knitting Factory Main Stage, Luna Lounge, Lightship Frying Pan, and Mercury Lounge to name a few.

There's a number of good bands that we like to play with, whose gigs we highly recommend. Among those are The Highwaters who play the Charleston with us every fourth Friday, say no more. Butz are nutz. Cementhead will kick your ass while Jonnie Chan and The New Dynasty Six will drive you to drink. Hot 'n Hazy take it easy, while Cropduster will leave you in theirs. Mold is nice, and Pitchfork Militia is a great band that doesn't get out enough. We have no greater weapon than the Negatones and Palomar is mighty and fine. deardarkhead is a bright shining star and The Jupiter Kings reign. Punch Drunk Monkeys will make your beg for donuts! No home is complete without a big, shiny godboy. Threepenny Opry does the twang thang and Today's My Super Spaceout Day should be every day. Get the low down on Lowdown Payment. And nobody doesn't love bobfields. The Damn Personals will never be bellboys. Wesley Willis wrote a song about us and we returned the favor. Don'cha know xbxrx hates us, and they hate you too! Mr. Cogswell loves our label-mates The Cogs. You hear that raging din? That's The Sound of URCHIN! The best marbles are Dark Marbles. Scott Carpenter & The Real McCoys rock you like a country western sledghammer. And check out APE--the world's biggest band.
Two people without whom the Moths Publicity machine
would not be complete are Steve
Bartoo, Poster Boy and Paintball Crotch Catcher and eagle eye
photographer Victoria Rich, for making us look good.
