TNCF Lunsjkonsert: Viking Moses

Indierock i samme gate som Songs: Ohia, Bill Callahan og Phosphorecent. Viking Moses er prosjektet til amerikanske Brendon Massei. Hans femte album ‘Cruel Child’ er rett rundt hjørnet---det er allerede sluppet noen singler og det låter ganske så lovende. Gledings!

/// Presse og bio ///
“The most uniquely talented musician since Kurt Cobain... an absolute genius.”
-Alan McGee, Creation Records founder, The Guardian.

“One of those people you can’t help but liking, because he’s so DIY and down to earth even though he’s got a tremendous talent.”
-Tony Wilson, Factory Records, founder, Channel 4.

“We ended up on the road together for two and a half months straight. It was the first big tour I’d ever done. He taught me how to do it.” -John McCauley , Deer Tick frontman, Werewolves Across America

Brendon Massei began touring regularly around 1993, first under his own name, then under the moniker Supperbell Roundup, before finally settling on Viking Moses in 2003. In the style of rock/soul, Viking Moses became known in 2004, thanks to Devendra Banhart's Golden Apples of the Sun compilation and good words, followed by a signing by Alan McGee (Creation Records founder, manager of Oasis and Mogwai).

Viking Moses has toured with Scout Niblett, Phosphorescent, Little Wings, and The Shivers. Massei is also known for bringing musicians including Deer Tick's John McCauley, Mike Sherk of Mandarin Dynasty, Nat Baldwin of the Dirty Projectors and Jana Hunter on their first tours.

Massei was close with Jason Molina of Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. Following Molina's death, Massei wrote about their friendship in an article for Common Folk Music, and contributed to a covers album benefiting the late singer's family, titled The Static and the Distance.
