On hearing MOS GENERATOR for the first time, it did cross my mind that there was a bit of a similarity in sound to that of Stone Axe. You know – the heavy guitar riffs, the chugging stoner type rhythms and the general Seventies hard rocking imagery.
And so it seems there IS a connection, with the latter band having been formed as a result of former’s split, the common denominator being guitarist / vocalist Tony Reed. Then, with the Stone Axe signing to Ripple Music, Tony sought the opportunity of re-launching his earlier band, the initial result being a r-release of the long out-of-print eponymous debut album, this time in a grand deluxe package.
Since then, MOS GENERATOR have recorded their first album in years, ‘Nomads’ and earlier this month (October 2012) it was made available world-wide.
If you like heavy rocking, stoner, space-rock or just plain and simple dirty old rock and roll, then these guys are well worth checking out!
