So we’re doing this gig on 12/5/08 at The Elbo Room and it just so happens a snappy, sassy band called “The Moves” is having their cd release party that night. We decided it’s best to get to know these “Moves” and find out just how good of “Moves” we are talking about. (You know, so Kirk can be practicing the right routine for this show. I mean we don’t wanna look like no hay-seeds!).
Here is what we found out about “The Moves”
Q1: So Moves, (can I call you just Moves?) Dec 5th is your cd release? What’s the name of the disc and is it your first, second, 9th release?
You can call us whatever you like there Suzie *wink*. The name of our disk is “One Two Three Four” and it is our first professionally recorded EP. 4 songs, all rock.
Q2: How would you describe your music to a yetti who’s been living alone on a mountain with only spam and cashews to eat for the last 5 years?
We weren’t aware of such a yetti-heavy fanbase in Chicago, but here goes: We are a 3-piece pop band who call to mind early INXS and U2 as well as newer 3-piece punk bands like Jawbreaker and Green Day. We use electronic instrumentation (strings, synths) to beef up our sound.
Q3: “The Moves” that is a bold band name. How good are these moves you have and can The Locals fans expect some “wicked fly moves” at your show. Follow up question, and of all the people with “great moves” who would you say has most inspired your moves?
Our moves are the best you’ve ever seen. They are so good they could send a million yettis into a frenzy of cashew and spam binging. Most of all, we are inspired by all the nameless, hardworking yettis whose spam is rotten and cashews are stale. Keep on keepin’ on yetti bretheren!
