We first checked in with the Dover, NH psych rockers MMOSS back in May, when they opened for Woods at 285 Kent. This show at the somewhat more “formal” Knitting Factory in Brooklyn gave the band an opportunity to wow Brooklyn audiences with a significantly more capable sound system, and the results show in this recording. As with the May show, the band played a five song set that ended with the mammoth “War Sux”, though this set swapped in their April single release, “Spoiled Sun”, which became another of our favorites immediately. With the addition of flute to the mix of organs and guitars, MMOSS has a distinctly retro vibe that puts them in good company with many 60s forebears, and their album i is, as we noted before, a collection of instant classics. “War Sux” was even more extended this night than at the last show, giving the band a chance to show off their jamming chops.
I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones and a soundboard feed from the Knit’s engineer, Rob. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
