Reading, England (1993 – 2008, 2011 – present)

Mojave 3 are a / band which formed in Reading, England in 1993. The band consists of Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar), Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar, bass), Simon Rowe (guitar), Alan Forrester (organ, vocals), and Ian McCutcheon (drums). Goswell, Halstead and McCutcheon were previously members of the band Slowdive.

The band initially existed as a trio consisting of Halstead, Goswell, and McCutcheon (hence the “3” in their name). After Slowdive were dropped by Creation Records, the trio decided to change musical direction to a country rock or folk music style, and were signed by 4AD. Rowe (formerly of Chapterhouse) and Forrester joined shortly after the release of their first album.

Both Halstead (the main songwriter for the band) and Goswell have released solo albums, also for 4AD. McCutcheon founded and is currently playing with his band called The Loose Salute who are signed to Heavenly Records.

The band went on hiatus in 2008, but returned to playing live gigs in 2011, including a handful of concerts supporting Band of Horses.

    Перешёл сюда тоже от Slowdive. Ожидал услышать больше конечно песен похожих от их прошлой группы, но оказалось их не так много. А так песни тихие, спокойные, расслабляющие, при романтике скорее всего самое то.

    Out of Tune album is great. I also love the b-sides from the singles taken from the record.

    slowcore and shoegaze developed in the same timeframe. not really any kind of progression, both genres are overly saturated in that lovely melahnkoly. same heart if not the same performance. just putting that out there not as criticism. nothing in music is a product of one

    "Ask Me Tomorrow" is beautiful.....was like an unplugged Slowdive record. They became a bit hippie-dippie after that though....

    If the logical progression of the new wave of shoegaze means Mojave 3-ish bands popping up everywhere, I can live with that. [3]

    Mojave 3 is great for those times where you're driving on the interstate at 3 am and no one is on the road except for you, a few truckers, and the occasional car that's there for whatever reason.
