Biography

Growing up in Altadena, California, Greg and Thom Moore shared a room for 15 years, in which they amassed a tiny collection of LP’s stolen from their parents. Over time, the Cowsills, Bee Gees, and the Beatles gave way to Thomas Dolby, the Cocteau Twins, and the Incredible String Band. On May 5, 2003, the Moore Brothers released their second album, On and Out, which was released on Amazing Grease Records. It features the same production and rhythm section team as their debut album, Colossal Small. Producer Jon Erickson supplies the bass while Andrew Borger (Norah Jones, Preston School of Industry, Tom Waits) plays drums. Like its predecessor, it features a wide array of styles and moods that showcase the Brother’s close harmony singing and their individual talents as well. The themes explored on the album include problematic relationships, marriage, and nuclear explosions.

    Saw these guys at a show in San Francisco with Paula Frazer and Kristin Hersh and was REALLY amazed by them live. Ran home, bought CDs...and was bored to tears. Were these really the same guys I saw live? Apparently so. MUCH better live than on CD, where they're a half-baked Simon and Garfunkel cover band...

    Not my thing. I saw them open for Joanna Newsom and they were cute at first and then they were just way annoying.

    What f3a571ing said. They were alright, but definitely not a good opener for a higher energy band like Why?, or even AU (actually, especially AU)

    Saw them with Why? and AU. They might have been ok if I was in the mood for boring guitar and vocals... but I wasn't. They played FAR too long and I would have been ok if their set was waaaay shorter. It was TECHNICALLY good (meaning they play well and have nice voices), but just bland overall.

    felt a bit like a simon and garfunkel coverband.. (i love simon and garfunkel) every song was good, but they were all in all too similar. but one song blew me away. one of the best guitar-voice-voice-songs i ever heard...and i don't know the name of the song =/

    Nice show in the Frankfurt-church, nice. A bit boring, yes, but definitly nice. The voices and the guitar: very fine! Thank you.
