Courtyard Moth — Alive 'n' Gigging
(Auricle AMC045, 1994, MC)

Alive 'n' Gigging Cover art

Not too many groups these days play in the late 60s early 70s classic blues rock style, and fewer yet do it with an inventive outlook. Courtyard Moth are from Leicester, England and play somewhere in the field of Garybaldi (check out "Moontrance"), Man, Black Sabbath, Robin Trower ("Drawn to the Light" more than cops from Trower's "A Little Bit of Sympathy"), Hendrix and a plethora of Kraut rock groups. Moth's main feel is of long burnin' tracks with lots of great guitar, bass, and drums. Nice and tight yet coupled with a garage / bootleg type sound makes this perfect for the cassette format yet the quality of sound should improve when they release a CD. Progressive rock needs more bands like this who know how to throw a jam, I await the first CD by this group as Courtyard Moth could be a good one.
