Dead Moon, a three-piece from Portland, Oregon, were known for their own particular brand of rootsy garage punk. Their music conjured images of hard-luck easy riders and lovers against the world. While their sound alternated between moody and aggressive, it was always remarkably genuine and energetic.

The band was fronted by the husband-and-wife team of Fred and Toody Cole. Many years and many bands later (after living through experiences as varied as homesteading in Alaska, dodging the Vietnam War draft, and hunting bears), the two formed a punk band called the Rats. Later, after adding Andrew Loomis on drums, Dead Moon were formed in 1987. An incredibly intense live recording from Dead Moon's legendary 20-date first tour of New Zealand. Recorded before an audience of about 40 people in Invercargill (Keith Richards called it the arsehole of the world), this is Dead Moon at their most savage and intense, the way they were meant to be heard!

Toody Cole recalled that the band had been invited to open for Nirvana that year, but one of Fred Cole’s ironfast rules was “never cancel a gig you committed to for a better one.” So Dead Moon burned through New Zealand as planned. Recorded live at the Glengarry Tavern, Invercargill New Zealand Saturday September 5th, 1992, and repressed for the second time in a small edition.
