Description

This Is Cave Music on LP

Moon Hooch captured the imaginations of thousands with it's infamous stints busking on subway platforms and elsewhere in New York City, two sax players and a drummer whipping up furious, impromptu raves. This happened with such regularity at the Bedford Ave Station in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that the band was banned from playing there by the NYPD. The trio's subsequent tours with They Might Be Giants, Lotus, Mike Doughty, and Galactic as well as on their own have only broadened the band's appeal. Wherever Moon Hooch plays, a dance party soon follows. Horn blow Recordings and Palmetto Records are now proud to release Moon Hooch's second album, THIS IS CAVE MUSIC. The title refers to the term Moon Hooch coined to describe their unique sound, it's like house music, but more primitive and jagged and raw. Horn players Mike Wilbur and Wenzl McGowen do this by utilizing unique tonguing methods, or adding objects, cardboard or PVC tubes, traffic cones, whatever's handy to the bells of their horns to alter their sound. Not to be outdone, drummer James Muschler gets swelling, shimmering sounds from his cymbals, and covers the head of his snare with a stack of splash cymbals to emulate the sound of a Roland TR-808 drum machine's clap.
