Moses Gun, The: The Moses Gun

"Once living in veritable poverty on the south side of Chicago, jamming on second-hand pawn-shop instruments, barely nourished on a diet of Ramen noodles, Camel cigarettes, Busch beer, Chicago's The Moses Gun, made up of guitarist, vocalist Vell Mullens and bassist, Rich Harris, released their self-titled affair containing 11 time-tested odes to romantic disillusionment, 70's TV existentialism and various addictions. A multicultural band that grew up listening to Todd Rundgren's Utopia, Wu Tang, and Husker Du…. sort of like an African-American Pixies, or QOTSA" (, 2012).

This is a good collection of interesting tracks full of flashbacks to everything from maybe Simon/Garfunkel meet Pearl Jam, on the "Intro" track, to the glory of heavy bass from Rush, on the '70s look back "The Ballad of Rueben Kincaid", yeah, remember the Partridge Family? If you had to compare them to anyone directly it would probably be Pearl Jam with tracks like "Jewelry Box" and "Stream of Consciousness", bringing out Mullens' early Eddie Vedder sound on vocals, without the hard edge of course.

This is interesting music performed well.
