"MMOC's wild, uncontrollable frontman recently did an interview with roots music publication and website nodepression.com. Here's a transcript of the interview, touching on MMOC's past, new album, influences and future plans:
Q: What styles of music had the greatest impact on you creatively?
A: 60’s and 70’s Classic Rock had the most influence on me by far, although I later became interested in more modern Rock and even Classical music. The songwriters of the 60’s and 70’s like Neil Young and Tom Petty are a good example of some directions we try to take."
While our next plan is to bring you a new Live Picks recording and perhaps a new single for the summer, MMOC has always been all about our studio albums. We're still promoting our recently released self-titled album and its title track, and you can find out about everything we've recorded over the years by clicking the photo above or reading on!
"My grandparents had purchased this strange new game for me, and for the life of me I was angry people were saying it was superior to Mario 64."
"The one other fact I wanted to note: We pretty much played Side One of the Beatles' White Album straight through, minus Wild Honey Pie, Ob-La-Di and Bungalow Bill. And then a ten-minute version of the Grateful Dead's Sugaree. So I'm guessing you guys are all pretty big music fans to put up with us doing that!"
This list is pretty self-explanatory. We'll keep it to studio albums. Please direct any complaints to Jason, Anthony or Alan.
"Option #1: Zorro
Superman? Batman? Give me a break. Zorro has legitimate power and actually existed in the mid 1800’s.
Option #2: Ray Finkle
I have to admit my inability to grow a solid mustache could pose a problem here. "
