In a recent review and in regards to jam stalwarts, moe., Rex Thomson wrote: “simply put, quality lasts.” It is a rare breed in this day and age to even fathom a band in the — for lack of a better categorization — jam genre that will not only still be playing live shows and consistently filling mid-sized rooms, but staying relevant 20 years from now.
With a new album slated for release (What Happened To The La Las) in late January, a new record label (Sugar Hill Records), and a new take on the recording process as a whole, we thought that it would be as good a time as any to send out our resident moe.ron in chief, eternal moe.down mayoral candidate and senior Honest Tune contributor, the aforementioned Rex Thomson to have a chat with a couple of our five friends called moe.
So sit back, relax, listen and watch as we celebrate — a day that was fabricated for our own amusement — “moe. Monday” with guitarists Chuck Garvey and Al Schnier and a chat about where they see themselves heading and, amongst other things, how one thing remains the same as it was two decades ago: when things go even slightly awry, it is all bassist Rob Derhak’s fault.
