Moth, today’s rock and roll quartet that mixes indie rock and roll sensibility with smart pop hooks, began as a garage area music group in the later ’80s. Teenage pals Brad Stenz and Bob Gayol tinkered with punk stylings within their indigenous Cincinnati, OH, but chosen something more elegant and fresh arrive their early adult years. Stenz (electric guitar) and Gayol (electric guitar) shifted to NY and installed with the Substitutes’ Tommy Stinson and drummer Josh Freese. The comfortable environment allowed the foursome to test in the studio room; however, Stenz needed something more long lasting. Rocket Through the Crypt’s Atom Willard (drums) and Hedwig as well as the Angry Inch’s Ted Liscinski (bass) stepped in and a cope with Virgin surfaced in springtime 2001. A season later, Procedures, Fiction & Equipment was released.
