My relationship with Mose Giganticus has been pretty varied over time. For about a year and a half, I considered myself a member of the band; another time, I left tour, rented a car and drove myself home after the first show. Regardless, I probably owe almost everything I know about how to be in a professional band while still staying true to DIY ethics to Matt Garfield and my experience with Mose. There is not one person in the DIY community that works harder and grinds it out moreso that Matt Mose. Whether it is touring to Alaska and back, stealing veg oil at 4 in the morning, or just playing show after show after show after show, Matt Garfield and Mose Giganticus is as honest and as real as music gets.
