Biography

Lead by former Afghan Whigs lead guitarist Rick McCollum, Moon Maan was born along the banks of the Ohio River Valley in places like Louisville, KY, and Cincinnati, OH before traveling up river to Minneapolis, MN.

Following the break-up of the Afghan Whigs in 2001, McCollum would find solace and inspiration in listening to the music that led him to pick up the guitar in the first place, including Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, T.Rex, and what McCollum calls the pinnacle of music, Sly Stone, the Stooges, and Jimi Hendrix.

The current band roster includes: guitarist and background vocalist Bryan Knisley (Push On Junior, Snapperhead); drummer Erik Mathison (Ballon Guy, Polara, Mark Mallman, Jessy Greene) and bassist Mark Pakulski (Signal and Report, Psychadelicates).

Sessions for the band’s debut started at Minneapolis’ Fur Seal Studios in 2005 with Joe Johnson (Heiruspecs, Jessy Greene) engineering, and continued in 2006 at Terrarium Studios with Brent Sigmeth (Luna, Bad Plus, Polyphonic Spree, Andrew Bird) handling the board. Everything was then mixed by Brent at Pachyderm Studios in late 2006.

Their debut self-titled album was released June 5, 2007.
