One such discovery was Roger McNamee's new band, Moonalice. One of my Facebook friends had joined the group Moonalice fans for whirled peas, so of course I was intrigued. Come to find out, it was band made up of quite a few members of the Flying Other Brothers.
About Moonalice? Well, here's the historical bit:
According to legend, the Moonalice tribe is descended from Piltdown Woman, or possibly from a couple of naked, snake charmed gardeners who liked to hang around with friendly dinosaurs. Core to the Moonalice culture is the Coming of the Seventh – Yggdrassil – a mythical player of low tones who emerges periodically from the sea, where he cavorts with a school of thermally enhanced tuna.
Now, about the band:
Moonalice is a far flung tribe of musicians who all want to play bass. New music with a 60s vibe. Featuring G.E. Smith (Saturday Night Live, Hall & Oates), Pete Sears (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Starship), Barry Sless (Phil & Friends, David Nelson Band), Jim Sanchez (Dr. John, Roy Rogers), Ann McNamee (Flying Other Bros.), and Roger McNamee (Flying Other Bros.) . . . and sometimes Jack Casady (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane).
They're currently in studio, working on an album. Its first single, Blink of An Eye, is free to download, and share. It's a really nice track, featuring Alice Moon Moonalice (aka Ann McNamee) on lead vocals. Take a listen, and if you like it, pay it forward to your friends. I certainly have, and will continue to do so.
