About MOSS

MOSS band members grew up in an era where songs were very much media commentary. The stage was the podium, the lyrics the speeches, as this was the only social platform for political and social voice. Young outspoken people in the 60’s and 70’s were considered troublemakers, anti-establishment and suppressed.   Songs with a social message and story continue to resonate with MOSS and they just launched their first CD titled:   “Face the Music”.

Mark Simpkin, Clive Pollard and Suzie Craig are the song-writing arm of MOSS.

“…….Projected images behind the band illustrate the subject matter of most of the songs and guide you through their journey.  The music has an unapologetic hat tip to the 70’s. No bad thing and their sound and show are big enough for any arena.” Ref: Pete McLaughlin; Owner of Distillery Studios, Adelaide and veteran of the London music scene.
