Product Description

Take a smattering of Reef, a heavy-weight chunk of Rage Against The Machine and a dollop of Lenny Kravitz, and you'll have a vague idea of where Moke are coming from. Big guitars, thudding bass-lines and classic rock vocals...

From the Label

(praise from UK press)

"one of Britain's most promising guitar groupsFans of Reef's robust song-writing and rockin', snowboardin' melodies will love this" - THE FACE

"Take a smattering of Reef, a heavy-weight chunk of Rage Against The Machine and an unhealthy dollop of Lenny Kravitz, and you'll have a vague idea of where Moke are coming from. Big guitars, thudding bass-lines and classic rock vocals" - FHM

"they rock in a staggeringly proficient Blues Against The Machine sex groove way that'll pull in the skate kids as well as the bikers. Just the band Skunk Anansie should've been given in their Christmas rocking stockings." - NME

"You'll love this. (Stone Roses frontman) Ian Brown does." - VELOCITY

"Moke have the testosterone-fuelled, blue collar passion of Springsteen, allied to the spring-loaded guitar dynamics of Reefthis debut album goes for the full-on, mid-Atlantic stadium effect." - VOX

"Funky, punky and more explosive than a Zippo filled with n! apalm" - TOTAL GUITAR

"IF GROOVE is your bagMoke will be the most exciting new rock band you'll hear this yearin Johnny Hogg, they have arguably the best, most soulful singer in Britain." - KERRANG!

"There's hints of Senser, Jane's Addiction, Rage Against The Machine and even Finley Quayeyet the band remain stunningly originalJohn Hogg's vocals take on a range comparable to that of Perry Farrell, and that in itself is praise of the highest order." - ECLIPSE

i like moke. i saw them @ the park opposite my house of all places!! they were brilliant, and i've never really recovered from being blown away by their huge sound... that night i spent the entire evening on the internet trying to find out about them - because all the other bands playing there were unsigned, i thought they were.. but they were huge, and i didn't realise! anyway - they're great. album rules

I agree, definitely watch out for these guys. They may be little known now, but give this album some time to catch on. If you like Rage Against the Machine, check this out. Don't be surprised though as there are several really slow, calm, blues-like tracks on this album that would disappoint the hard core metal-rap-rock genre fans. All in all, a very unique debut album from this incredibly talented band.

I saw Moke open for the Black Crowes and was totally blown away. When they opened up their set with the first track from the album, "Down," I knew that these guys could rock. I bought the album that night and it seems that they have been a well kept secret ever since. Blazing guitars, strong bass lines, rocking beats, and roaring vocals. What more could you want!

Music, frankly, to complement your life. By turns it rocks, soothes, picks and scratches at your psyche but all with a loving 'ah - it's going work out just fine' scratch on the head. Both for the darkest nights and the brightest days, I can't recommend this album enough.

This album really grew on me after 2 or 3 listens. "Down" starts of this great album with an acoustic guitar and impressive vocal stylings before the bass, drums, and guitars kick in; this opening moment is an accurate indication of the powerfully expansive musical abilities Moke possess. Moke keeps their crunchy modern rock songs interesting by changing from softer slow to mid tempo stuff to a faster and edgier style with in the same song. Moke's lead singer, John Hogg, has a great voice and delivery (his vocal style/delivery is very similar to Chris Cornell's style (I do emphasize *style* here and not *sound*)). Although this issue from Moke is less meloncholy and a bit more uptempo than Chris Cornell's "Euphoria Morning" both albums display the same impressive range of eclectic musical stylings, making them better with each listen. Hogg's voice really is the strongest part of this young British band. Hogg has a graceful sounding voice (which can beautifully hold the higher falsetto notes) which works well with the carefully plucked guitars and minimal, yet well-timed, drums and bass work. Furthermore, Hogg possesses an authentic ability to sing energetically and rock out on songs such as "Down" and "Wheel In Motion." These guys are really talented. I would recommend getting both of Moke's albums (this one first though). My favorite tracks on this album are: Mislaid the Key, My Desire, Down, Wheel In Motion, and Sleepyhead. I would recommend this lesser-known band to any fan of good music, and definitley to anyone who likes Counting Crows or Chris Cornell's solo album. Enjoy!

I can't compare Moke to anyone, that's impossible. You can try, but there will always people who beg to differ. The music has elements of blues, rock, a little R&B, and mixed in some funky noises, and it all FITS. I don't know how, but it just does. The lyrics are insightful, and "interesting on the ears" with intriguing rhymes and word combinations. Hogg has a great voice, modulating and whatnot. The thudding basslines of Evans will keep you grooving. In "Powercut," and "My Desire" Morgan drums irresistibly yummy "percussion-tunes." Genockey's guitar throughout the disc is full of twists, and whatever, it's hard to describe. You just gotta hear it. Simply these guys rock with their own style. There is no comparison. I can't wait to see these guys live.

This release from England's Moke is the best thing to hit these shores in a long time. Not only that, but it reflects...to a certain extent...some of the things going on in today's American rock scene. If you are bothered by the anger and rage in today's rock music, but dig the urban/rock mix...you should do yourself a favor and check this CD out. It's got that rap flavor (kind of) without the "gansta"/"machismo"/"get in the pit" hype of Rage, Kid Rock, Korn, and the like...no offense 'cause at times they're cool too. Moke has more soul. More peace. More.

I first saw moke open for the black crowes, and they totally blew me away, I later had the chance to meet them at a club show they did in my home town and not only are they one of the best bands I've heard in a long time, but they're a great bunch of guys to talk to.
Their debut CD has someting for everyone, wheter you're into hard core rock, or hip hop or whatever, they will definatly become a regular to your CD player.
