Editorial Reviews

In the mid-late 1980s, Moss Icon pioneered a progressive, highly emotive sound that stood in stark contrast to just about everything even remotely considered punk-rock at the time. In retrospect, they more resembled an inspired marriage of the bleak post-punk leanings of Joy Division with the raucous riffage of the Wipers, albeit considerably less accessible thanks to Moss Icon's more sinister tone, exploratory arrangements, and frontman Jonathan Vance's almost stream-of-conscious sociopolitical rampages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obscure band with a whole sky full of influence. February 16, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Just the packaging of the CD version alone here is worth reviewing. A beautiful tri-inlay digipak style that has a (thick) lyric booklet tucked in the center, and it all folds together nicely into a perfect square. Alright, now for the music: Their is something very earthy about this band in that the songs come on like a long and hipnotic trance as if someone put peyote in your morning coffee and you can't seem to figure out why you keeping staring at the tree outside your office window. Some songs are upbeat punk-ish heavy rants while others are drawn out tribal soundscapes. Jon Vance (singer) seems to bare his soul in all sorts of distorted ways. From bad childhood experiences to loving his free country that sometimes isn't all that free. CD1 is the Lyburnum LP minus "Kick the Can" and "The Life" which leads me to CD2 which indeed includes those two songs as well as some fantastic songs from the bands "later" period which sound so original to me that I have never heard anything like it. CD2 also includes the bands very rare "Greta" 7". The visual artwork/design/packaging was done by the guitarist Tonie Joy and If being a musician doesn't work out for him he should be a full-time visual artist because he is a genius. All songs are remastered to perfection and seem timeless. Put this on in 2063 and I bet it will still be relevant.... Maybe more? STANDOUT TRACKS INCLUDE: Kick The Can, Moth, I'm Back Sleeping......
