GvsB
Did the Fat Albert gang know that MOthra raided their closets? First, A Pixel Vision video of Mothra’s Part of A Note by Michael O’Reilly. Then a Mothra show at the Khyber. In the last two videos Mothra brought up some special guests – The late Wayne Hamilton (of Vibrolux, Rockula, Suffacox) and Mark Lux of at that time Temple of Bon Matin. – Thanks to Mark Lux for the tapes.

Mothra

Mothra

Mothra easily had the best costumes and 7″ and cd packaging of any Philly bands. Often those kind of things have been used to make up for lets say a lack of talent. But not in the case of Mothra – they had the kitsch of Urge Overkill but musically with more of a 70’s hard rock thing rather than lounge sound. Starting as a three piece with Dan on guitar, Neil on bass & vocals and Rob (Blue Train, Rockula, Beretta 76, Creem Circus). Then later adding Chris Hunter (Red Paint People DTO) as a second guitarist.
