This week on Simple Folk Radio (first broadcast 16th June) Dillon will be featuring a session from Viking Moses.
“Viking Moses is ‘The Most Uniquely talented musician since Kurt Cobain… an absolute genius, and one of the best musicians I have ever released.”
– Alan McGee (Creation Records founder)
Viking Moses has been finding very fair attention since 2004. Thanks to Devendra Banhart’s “Golden Apples Of The Sun” compilation and good words, followed by a signing by Alan McGee (Creation Records founder, and manager of Oasis, Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream, Teenage Fanclub, Mogwai, Libertines, etc.) and fanatical support by the late Tony Wilson (founder of Factory Records, and manager of Joy Division, Happy Mondays, etc.) Viking Moses has found high acclaim in UK, Europe, and North America and they have been kept heavily active in those parts of the world these past few years.
“If the DIY house show circuit has a pied piper, his name is Brendon Massei. Massei, who plays music under the name Viking Moses, has been recording and touring independently as a full-time job since he was 14, and he’s spent more than half of his life paving trails for other musicians to follow. Artists that Massei took on their first tours include: Deer Tick, Scout Niblett and Nat Baldwyn of the Dirty Projectors.” – MTV
