Pale Moon Gang
"PALE MOON GANG reflects the raw aggressiveness and tender underbelly of
New York, the city they call home. With riffs that grab you and won't let
go, the GANG creates a smoldering energy that rides on a wave of pure
Lead vocalist/guitarist Richard Dev Greene was born and raised in New York
City. His playground, downtown's Lower East Side, afforded him an
experience few aspiring rockers ever get - exposure to NYC's raw,
rebellious, punk rock scene. From that point on, Greene knew he had but
one calling in life. This destiny led his first band, Pale Face Of Youth,
to the doorstep of fame. After being spotted at CBGB, Pale Face was
offered an opening spot for The CLASH, a band whose audiences routinely
crucified opening acts. Yet, this was not the case with Pale Face, who
went over so well they were offered two more shows on what turned out to
be The Clash's farewell tour. This honor lead to opening slots for other
legends like PIL, The Cramps, Billy Idol and The Ramones.
Around this time, a fourteen year old Luke Miller happened to cross paths
with Greene at the now legendary Saint Marks Bar. After an initial
confrontation, fueled by drink and teen-aged macho posturing, the two
bonded in their mutual mania for rock'n'roll. They danced and thrashed to
songs by the Sex Pistols, Iggy, and the Clash and as each song entered
their bloodstream like the same drug, they knew a lifelong friendship was
brewing. A few weeks later Miller went to see Pale Face perform and was
blown away. In his journal he recalls, ""Greene glided across the stage
like James Brown and attacked his guitar with the ferociousness of Joe
Strummer"". He felt the only thing missing was himself onstage with Greene.
At the time, the only instrument Miller could play was the radio, but this
was soon to change. Greene spent weeks teaching Miller bass guitar and
soon their musical lives together had begun. Their personal connection
produced great music and an intense onstage chemistry...but intense
chemistry often has unintended consequences. A fanatical devotion to punk
ideology combined with a few arrests, too much junkie business and more
than a dash of cold gin, led their then manager to declare these boys
""unmanageable"". Indeed they were, and with their mission sidetracked, they
went their separate ways.
Time heals all wounds. Miller came to Greene in 2004 with a proposition:
reform the band in attitude and energy, but with a new sound. Thus, PALE
MOON GANG was born. The startling compliment to their sound comes from
Brian Wolfe, an amazingly skilled drummer and true southern gentleman, who
transforms onstage into the brilliant, manic ""Wolfman"". They performed
their debut show at the place it all started, CBGB, and their mission
When watching Greene and Miller perform, you feel as if you're seeing
their story unfold. Their wildly fluid and untamed onstage rapport
captivates audiences and makes them true believers, just as Greene did for
Miller that first time.
PALE MOON GANG is recording a new album at Brooklyn's Excello Studios.
Their current sound evolves from heavy bass hooks, driving beats, and
sinewy guitar passion, coupled with lyrics that dive in deep. It's a sound
that burrows inside you and makes itself home. That's alright, this is
tribal music medicine that makes it all better"
Aunt Ange began as a subconscious entity residing in the heads of boyhood friends Patrick O'Brien and Jack Kearney, and has since evolved into an art-rock collective of varying line-ups and instrumentation, also incorporating visual arts and storytelling into their performances and recordings. The innovative sound combines lush instrumentation and choral harmonies into what Lucid Culture described as "a creepy masterpiece of current-day psychedelic rock." This ambitious, multi-media project seeks to expose basic human emotions, delivering a universal truth and blurring the lines between the "real" world and "fantasy."
