The band were an important part of the feminist art punk movement along with British bands such as The Slits and The Raincoats.  Forceful ...view item »

Dead Moon
Trash and Burn

Fred Cole has been screamin' at the top of his lungs since 1965. Music that has no heart is music that has no soul. Dead Moon represent what is right about Rock-n-Roll in this day in age. They do all the recordings themselves and in the process leaving a bit of there souls for the listeners. One of the Pacific Northwest most underrated bands put...view item »

Buried Country

Musical archaeologists extraordinaire Mississippi Records team up with Australia’s Flipping Yeah for this release, and an important one it is too.

Dead Moon
Strange Pray Tell

This is great. Considering the low fidelity and the loose arrangements, the quality of the songwriting is amazing. This is what X could have been like if that meddling Manzarek hadn't taught them how to play "Soul Kitchen". Listening to it in the car today, one of my friends asked to hear "Play With Fire" a second time. He also quite likes NOFX ...view item »

The Emotional, Cosmic & Occult World Of Joe Meek

By now, the music of Joe Meek probably needs no introduction. The studio obsessive, eccentric and pioneer was responsible for a raft of independent pop productions in the '60s; possibly the most notable of these being 'Telstar' by his house band the Tornados in 1962, which reached No.1 on both the UK and US sing...view item »

Dead Moon
Nervous Sooner Changes

Dead Moon played a gnarly form of rock music, bluesy enough to be released on the legendary Mississippi Records.

Dead Moon
Stranded In The Mystery Zone

Dead Moon, a three-piece from Clackamas, is known for its own particular brand of rootsy garage punk. Fred Cole is the band leader, and is also known for his 60s psychedelic group, the Lollipop Shoppe. Generally, this album is considered one of the best Dead Moon albums, although my personal favourite is probably Strange Pray Tell. This album is...view item »
