What the fuck is a Moondog?
I know that some of you out there are probably into avant-garde jazz and may be familiar with Louis Thomas (Moondog) Hardin. While I am sure that he made some really interesting tunes, this post isn't about him.
It is about Walter Schreifels' band in between Gorilla Biscuits and Quicksand. This EP was recorded after the Biscuits broke up and before the formation of Quicksand, but was only available as 17th generation tape copies until it's official release in 2006 by Anthology Recordings.
As far as a description of the jams go, I think it is fair to say that this fits pretty much right in between GB and Quicksand. Great tunes all the way through and a great little piece of NYHC history.
