"Their band visage is like a holy union of Beatles HELP! and Echo and the Bunnymen (really, both Porcupine-era and '87 self-named album-era) photo shoots. Incredibly, the music created by this band from a city on the Mississippi more than justifies comparisons to such esteemed predecessors from the city on the Mersey. I would go on with this line of thinking, but I think it would end with conspiracy theories regarding the similarities between the name of the (surprisingly good) lone no-McCulloch Bunnymen album with the name of this very website. Suffice it to say, Supermoon rocks, but in the very best way -- with atmosphere and transcendence."
What if Pulp and The Kinks shared a prison cell? Or if Mick Jones fronted Joy Division? We pondered these questions ourselves as we set out to create Supermoon, about the same time actual Supermoons were showing themselves to be scary-cool in the spring of 2011.
