MOON Band Bio: For 15 years now the Morgantown, West Virginia rock band MOON has been taking their love for punk, pop and 60's garage to new levels. The group consists of Mark Poole on guitar and lead vocals, Billy Sheeder on drums, Bill Matheny on bass and Clint Sutton on percussion. After receiving critical praise for their debut LP/CD Questionable Places And Things (released on Skyclad Records in the early nineties) the band spent the better part of a decade honing their unique style of noisy pop as well as their fiercely independent do-it-yourself work ethic. Since that time, MOON's founder and lead singer Mark Poole started Zone 8 Records (the bands label) as well as built their own recording studio. There the band recorded their second full length CD entitled Get It Through Your Heart. On Get It Through Your Heart MOON plows their way through 11 indie-rock punk pop gems with a confidence that could only come from over a decade of playing under their belts. That album was featured in West Virginia Public Radio's top 5 picks for best releases of 2000. On their new CD Flight Logs, the band's sound is a little more refined while still maintaining their signature guitar buzz. You can hear elements of The Byrds, Kinks, Neil Young, and 'Revolver' - era Beatles in their songs blended with a sonic attack reminiscent of The Ramones, Husker Du, and Dinosaur Jr. The band has also added two new members since Get It Through Your Heart. Todd Moser is now handling the bass duties and Clint Sutton on percussion and back up vocals. Watch for MOON to come to your town as they are currently playing shows to support their new release.
