Dead Moon

September 4, 2006

Strange Pray Tell
Music Maniac (Germany)

Fred Cole, his wife Toody and Andrew Loomis have been cranking out their acid-drenched brand of punk rock scuzz for nearly thirty years now. Allegedly inspired by seeing The Ramones for the first time, long-time band veteran Cole sought out to interpret their fury in a unique way. Dead Moon’s take on punk (which owes as much to the sixties, Sonic/Wailers era as it does that mid-seventies band of brothers) can only come from the Northwest – perhaps it’s the mold from the constant rain or from inhaling way too many Douglas Fir needles.
I don’t know for sure.
1992’s Strange Pray Tell is recorded in glorious mono, probably cut right to a record lathe in the Cole’s music store/label headquarters Tombstone Music. I once traded them an odd sixties guitar for a fuzzbox and the couple got into a heated squabble about the lineage of the old axe (it was a Kay-built Silvertone, Toody informed me), but that’s another story.
If you’re familiar with Dead Moon, you are in for a treat. If not, imagine the Seeds meets the Ramones on some very bad windowpane acid and cheap wine.
