New Moist Kojak: December 1, 2023 Tubby’s

Again within the 90s I don’t assume New Moist Kojak performed all that usually, however each time they performed in NYC it was 21+ and I used to be left—actually, in a single occasion—standing outdoors. Thankfully for his or her reunion after fifteen or so years of dormancy (theirs, not mine) I’m nicely previous ingesting age so right here we’re with the primary of three dates the band did in December. In case you’re not acquainted, New Moist Kojak is the louche-rock side-project/supergroup of Ladies In opposition to Boys‘ Scott McCloud (vocals/guitar) and Johnny Temple (bass) with Geoff Turner of Grey Matter (guitar), Nick Pellicciotto of Edsel (drums), and Charles Bennington of Excessive Again Chairs (sax/keyboards). For those who acknowledge all these bands, you in all probability personal a bunch of Dischord CDs and we should always hang around someday. Anyway, earlier than they (thought they) have been cool, Pitchfork actually favored New Moist Kojak’s Nasty Worldwide, their second album on Contact & Go, and gave it a nine-point-something earlier than later scrubbing that from their web site.

Now, 25+ years later, with McCloud and Temple additionally having revived their 80s post-hardcore band Soulside along with sporadic excursions with Ladies In opposition to Boys, it appears most applicable to reactivate New Moist Kojak. (Facet notice: it’s not too late for Little Child to play their third present!) By no means as excessive profile as their foremost act, a pleasant measurement, enthusiastic crowd at Tubby’s made it clear New Moist Kojak weren’t forgotten. Many of the songs performed at Tubby’s are off the band’s two Contact & Go information with a pair from the later Do Issues on Beggar’s Banquet. No songs right here from their ultimate album That is the Glamorous which I can solely guess is a technique to go away us wanting extra—let’s not wait so lengthy for subsequent time.

I recorded this from our standard location at Tubby’s with a board feed from FOH engineer Will. The sound is superb. Get pleasure from!
