CFM (In the Red), Scraper, Beast
Still Life is unlike any other record Charles Moothart has recorded; the songs came quickly, were recorded as experiments and he went through the process alone. Previously Mootharts bands have been collaborations from all sides, from his high school hardcore punk quartet Culture Kids with CFM band mate Michael Anderson to the toughest pop band in Southern California Moonhearts, to the fleeting garage rock band the Perverts with long time friend and collaborator Ty Segall. The monolithic super group Fuzz was the product of Charles master riffs marrying Segalls songwriting prowess and unparalleled rhythmic style. A perfect meeting of minds of two musicians in their prime. Two friends with egos so intertwined in the midst of a five year touring spell in Segalls band as his secret weapon, heard but not seen, hidden in tangles, the two became a tangled force themselves. Sometimes you realize you must shed whats most comfortable to find truth in yourself again and so Moothart has denied the comforts of being the sideman to give listeners a slice of himself. Moothart has recruited high school friend Michael Anderson to play guitar, lone-wolf-jack-of-all-trades Tyler Frome on bass and Audacitys powerhouse drummer Thomas Alvarez to round out the rhythm section of this outsider band. -- IN THE RED
