MOON ROCKS, THE: Pure: CS

Mar 15, 2022

If I were forced by social convention to state the name of the one band of which this mixed-gender Los Angeles power trio reminds me most, I suppose I’d have to say L7. This is somewhat of a shame, because I never really liked L7 all that much, but that tempo and feel are kinda here—midtempo punk plus some kinda vague interest in sounding like a late-’80s FM rock band. The Moon Rocks have much more intriguing vocals, however, kinda like the “cool chick” mumble of Chrissie Hynde, albeit a more sinister variant. I suppose twenty-five years ago or whatever, a band like this would have been snapped up by some neo-major label, polished up a tad, and sent out on Warped Tour to great acclaim. I’m not sure what happens to bands like these nowadays. All I know is that they probably have too much on the ball for pissing around with cassette releases. BEST SONG: “Make Me.” BEST SONG TITLE: “Psycho,” although this is one of the less-great songs with such a title. FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Band has an Incredible Shrinking Dickies album cover thumbtacked to the wall. –Rev. Nørb (Self-released, wearethemoonrocks.com)
